I hope you saved some ham from yesterday’s Easter supper for today’s leftover idea! This is my family’s favorite way to use up leftover ham. It has the same comfort food feel as mac & cheese, but with a few different ingredients.
I have been making this for over ten year with all our leftovers and I cannot remember when the recipe came from…my guess is a magazine or newspaper article. Anyway, it makes a ton so, I tend to split the recipe into 2 9×9 pans. I cook one and freeze the other!
