Great For Using Up Leftover Ham

Every Easter we have leftover ham and while ham sandwiches are great, I like to turn it into other things too. Check out this list of leftover ham recipes.

A cheesy casserole with broccoli is a delicious way to breath new life into ham. It’s perfect for when you have just a little bit of ham to use. The recipe calls for 2 cups of ham but you could make it with 1 cup. You could also toss in a little leftover turkey. Casseroles are great for getting rid of your odds and ends.

Ham and Noodle Casserole Recipe Tips

  • Try using peas instead of broccoli.
  • I use a combination of cheddar cheese and mozzarella, but you could use any cheese you like. Swiss cheese and Parmesan would be great too.
  • The noodles will cook more in the oven so undercook them just slightly.
  • This casserole can be assembled ahead of time and refrigerated and then popped in the oven just before dinner.
  • Leftovers reheat well and will keep in the refrigerator for 3 to 5 days in an airtight contanier.

    Delicious! I used 16 ounces of egg noodles instead of 8, cooked some mushroom onion and celery in butter drained all the liquid and added that to the casserole and I did not use Ritz on top ….instead I broiled it for 5 to 10 minutes until it got crispy and brown on top.
    Oh and maybe some extra cheese (Swiss and three cheddar blend ) on top ;);)

    I throughly enjoyed this Casserole. But instead of using Broccoli I used Frozen Peas. And instead of Cream of Chicken Soup I used Cream of Celery Soup.

      I also enjoyed this recipe. As mentioned previously, casseroles are great for emptying out the fridge of leftovers, so instead of broccoli, I used brussel sprouts cut in half from the previous evening. I had good size pieces of both smoked Gouda and Colby Jack that I needed to get gone and which also worked great together. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe. I really enjoyed it !
