  • Cook's Note:
  • A nice topping for this is some lightly crunched up Ruffles® regular potato chips. They add a nice crunch factor to the casserole. I use them as a garnish when I serve it so they do not get mushy!

This was delicious! I cut the recipe in half and baked in an 8x8 dish as a "side", BUT if I would have known before hand how good this was going to be, I would have not cut it in half and I would have served it as the main course! I have seen similar recipes without the ham. I LOVE the addition of the ham! My daughter actually called me from school this morning asking me to heat some up and bring it to her at lunchtime. Unfortunately for her, she didn't know there weren't any left-overs. She has NEVER called me before requesting I bring her left-overs:) I will definitely be making again soon.

I wasn't overly impressed. I LOVE onion but this was way too much onion. And the cream of chicken soup just didn't seem to "go" with it. Next time I'm going to try doubling the sour cream and omitting the soup, only using half an onion and adding more cheese.

This is a really nice recipe! No fussing with "cook this" and "chop that", just put it together and bake. It's a "scoop-out" casserole, not like lasagna that will neatly cut into squares. The dish tastes even better the next day. I followed the recipe exactly as it is written.

I used the same ingredients with the same measurements but I added 5 eggs and it was holy cow good! My family ate it all and begged for more.

Add me to the list of people who think this is one of the best things I ever tasted. And how simple! I used ham which was already cubed so even that little chore was avoided. We ate at least two thirds of this casserole for dinner and finished it off for lunch the next day....and my husband doesn't eat leftovers! Very good, thanks so much, I have added it to my Christmas morning brunch menu.

This was prety good. It was really quick to put together which is nice. My hubby loved it and had 3rds but my kids wouldn't even try a bit because of the way it looked. I will make this again.

Did not add anything extra. It was good just the way the recipe said. My and husband loved it.
