"This recipe was quite good. I did make a few minor changes. I had to use cream of Mushroom soup, just because I did not have the other. I also added approximately 1/2 tsp. Of Cajun Seasoning. I had to increase the cooking time by 15 minutes."

"were the potatoes supposed to be frozen before I used them? I followed instructions precisely and cooked for an extra half hour but the potatoes were not thoroughly cooked. Very disappointed."

"As this recipe stands, the salt content is off the charts to the point of being disgusting. The cubes of velveeta in the casserole make these pockets that bombard the person eating it with salty cheese points. It didn't help much that I used seasoned potatoes as I was hoping to add a bit more flavor to it but then again, that didn't help either; hence the one star.

That being said, this whole casserole makes a lovely base for a broccoli cheese soup which is what I turned it into so that my family could actually eat it. I took what was left of the casserole (which was about 3/4 of one of the casseroles), picked the ham out so I could keep it for later, and threw it into my ninja blender and pureed it with a half gallon of milk. I then added it to a soup pan, added about 2 cups of water to it, added fresh broccoli and carrots (which I chopped up in the ninja as well), and returned the ham to the pot and simmered it until the veggies were cooked. The soup was delicious!"

"I halved this recipe because my family if 3 simply does not need that much food.

I substituted cream of onion soup, because that was what I had on hand, and added about 4 ozs each, shredded sharp cheddar and mozzarella, because Velveeta is NOT real cheese.
That being said, this recipe was so salty that we could hardly eat it. Even my father, who dumps salt on his food like it's his lifeline, was complaining about the salt content. My husband will usually eat pretty much anything that doesn't eat him first (and some things that might!) only this time, he ate about half of a serving and went back to make a sandwich.
Overall, I think it's a good basis for a recipe, however, next time I will use regular, unseasoned potatoes as I believe that this is where much of the salt content came from."

"All I changed was I don't like Velveeta cheese so I replaced it with habanero and jalapeno shredded cheese."

"I made this yesterday but cut down/substituted some of the ingredients for what I had on hand. I used a can of Cream of Asparagus soup, added a small can of drained mushrooms, about 1/2 to 3/4 c. sour cream, about 1/4 c. water, a good amount of pepper, some seasoning salt and one-half of a 28 oz. bag of O'Brien potatoes. Then I shredded up a good amount of sharp cheddar, mixed it all together with a good amount of ham cubes. I also put extra cheese on top before covering with foil. I made it up earlier in the day and other half put it in the oven for 45 minutes covered, took the foil off for another 15 and it turned out just fine. The reduction in ingredients made a 9" x 9" casserole which we almost finished. This will go into the rotation and is a good use for leftover ham."

"Seriously? 1555 mg sodium and Velveeta is not cheese. Good recipe if you make a simple white sauce...butter flour and add real cheddar cheese."

"Fantastic recipe! I halved the recipe and put it into a 9x13 pan instead of an 11x7 pan. My husband and I thought the flavor was great. Will definitely be making this again soon!"
