This is a well seasoned ham casserole with noodles, broccoli, and cheddar cheese, great potluck casserole recipe or a family meal in one pot.

Ingredients:

  • 4 ounces medium noodles
  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen broccoli spears
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon prepared brown mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 cup grated mild Cheddar cheese
  • 2 cups cooked diced ham
  • 1/3 cup slivered toasted almonds*

Preparation:

Preheat oven to 350°.
Cook noodles following package directions; drain. Cook broccoli just until tender.
In a saucepan over low heat, melt butter; blend in flour, salt, prepared mustard, and pepper. Stir until smooth and bubbly. Gradually add milk, stirring until thickened; remove from heat and stir in cheese until melted. Dice broccoli stalks; leave flowerets intact. In an 8-inch square baking dish, arrange noodles, broccoli stems, and ham; pour cheese sauce over all. Arrange the flowerets over the top, pressing down a bit. Sprinkle with almonds. Bake ham casserole for about 15 minutes, or until hot and bubbly.

Ham Casserole Recipe, Member shar.berry

OMG! This recipes was amazing. My daughter-in-law loved loved loved it. So much she went back for seconds and thirds. I will absolutely make this recipe again. (I would like to know what it tastes like using the cheddar cheese that the recipe called for.) I didn't have cheddar so I used the only cheese I had, Fontinella, it didn't exactly melt right in the sauce pan but turned out fine once baked in the oven. I cooked fresh broccoli a little bit instead of using frozen. (I wonder what it would taste like with left over turkey?) Oh, I used whole wheat macaroni and added more spicy brown mustard. My bottle of mustard was nearly empty so I poured the milk in the bottle and shook it up than poured it into the saucepan. I just had the leftovers for lunch...yummy!
