"The dish was far too salty even for my husband who adds salt to everything."

"I think this recipe was just okay. I wasn't blown away. Also I think 8-10 hours in the crockpot was too long. 5-6 hours might have been more appropriate."

"I love this recipe! This is how I've always made mine- with just a few revisions. I do a probably the same amount of potatoes, maybe a little more. I do about 4 cups of cubed ham. 1 large sliced onion. 3-4 cups of mild shredded cheddar. Two regular cans of cream of mushroom soup. And 3/4tsp of paprika. Mix half the onion and potatoes in the crock, then do cheese, then repeat, then add the mushroom soup can and the spices on top. I don't touch it until about 2 hours left, then I stir. Cook it for 8-10 hours. The longer, the better so the potatoes are nice and soft. The color might not be beautiful, but it's DELICIOUS!"

"I have made this several times and always get raves from family and friends. Instead of Cream of Mushroom I use Cheddar Cheese or Cheese and Broccoli, also reducing the amount of grated cheese by 1/2 cup. I layer it potato, onion, ham, potato, onion, broccoli, grated cheese, ham and last layer of potato. Pour soup over and sprinkle freshly cut parsley on top as well as the pepper and paprika"

"I have made this type before but I used celery soup an cream or I have used 1/2 an 1/2. And cut my potatoes thicker and I only used about a pound or so of Potatoes, just enough to fill the casserole dish, one large onion, and a couple of cups of Ham, And about a 4 th of a cup of flour mixed with the liquid. And I added about a tsp or so of salt and a little fresh ground pepper. No paprika. A cup of cheese and then topped with a little more cheese on top depending on how much cheese you like, popped it back in the oven until the cheese melted an browned just a bit."
