Ham and Broccoli Bake

Plan ahead and start this satisfying and comforting casserole the night before you are going to bake it. The hearty entree is also inexpensive to serve. —Harmony Tardugno, Vernon Center, New York

    Made it the night before like the recipe called for. Even after baking it for an hour it was too mushy and the bread was soggy. I followed the directions perfectly. I don't recommend this to anyone. It doesn't taste very good and the texture is terrible!

    Ham and broccoli bake is a simple, easy breakfast that we absolutely love. We make it whenever we have all the ingredients and it's so simple and tastes so good, we will be keeping this recipe for a long time to come.

    This recipe has a light but very odd texture to it. You get tired of eating it immediately and it begs for more flavor and substance. It was scraped off our dinner plates and thrown away!

    Too much sodium for my husband's heart-healthy diet.
