Really liked this recipe. I used fresh veggies as I prefer fresh. Just steamed them in microwave first. I also had some cabbage so added that too. I added some fresh grounded nutmeg to the rue for some added flavor.

Delicious!!! I made this to use up some leftover spiral sliced ham that I had. The cheese sauce is really yummy as well. I added a few diced garlic cloves to the vegetables for a little added flavor. I also made some cheddar biscuits to go with it to round out the meal. This recipe is a keeper!

Great use of extra veggies and ham. Doubled up on vegetables; half a head of raw cauliflower, head of broccoli and 1c green beans. Roasted veggies withEVOO with SnP at 450F for 10 min and roasted the breadcrumbs on a different sheet at same time on parchment. While everything was roasting I made the b?chamel sauce, added the ham and then tossed veggies in sauce. Placed concoction in 9x13 dish and sprinkled with breadcrumbs. Cooked as directed. Eaten entirely as a ‘snack’ by two teenage boys for breakfast. Good basic recipe that can be adjusted to fit any meat/veggie combination. Going in the permanent file!

(I wanted five stars but site would not let me!) Fantastic - what a great way to use left over ham. The only thing different I did was to add some garlic powder. Will definitely make again.

My veggie-loathing husband went back for seconds! We decided it would also be good with chicken or leftover turkey!

Good. Used frozen Normandy Blend veggies and added 1/4 tsp garlic powder as well as Italian seasoning.

Tasted good & cheesy! I used a package of broccoli & a package of mixed veggies. I just wanted more variety in the vegetables. I didn't toast the bread crumbs since I used seasoned panko bread crumbs sprinkled on top.

My family really liked this hearty casserole. I used the frozen California blend veggies instead of just broccoli and cauliflower and the carrots in that blend were a good addition, I thought. We really enjoyed the dish and it was a great way to use up some leftover Easter ham.

I am in agreement that it needs more seasoning perhaps garlic.
