This was actually pretty good... I used leftover ham and mashed potatoes so I know I had too much for what the recipe called for. I did do what a few others suggested... I added broccoli, about 1/2 tsp of celery salt, 1/2 tsp of onion powder and I doubled the garlic and it tasted really good. The kids picked at it but they are picky eaters.. all the adults who ate it really enjoyed it w/ a good side salad.This is definatly a keeper for all those leftovers after Easter!! ***UPDATE*** I've made this a few times now and I have since added those fried french onions to the top.. the onions give it a great taste and the crunch is EXACTLY what this recipe needs! This is a favorite at my house now and I've made this even when I didn't have Easter leftovers!

I was told NOT to make this again. My family hated it.

This is a great basic recipe - it's so adaptable to everyone's tastebuds. Thanks to other reviewers for broccoli, onion powder, extra garlic, less butter and milk. I substituted Cheddar-Broccoli soup (low-fat)for Mushroom, added a can of mushrooms, a blob of dijon mustard and a little poultry seasoning. I topped it with a few dry bread crumbs for crunch and a little cheddar cheese during baking and watched my husband go at it. I have a request to do this again. Easy and good.

I used everyone's advice and cut down on the potatoes. I used 9 and it was still too many. I would recommend using 7 potatoes. I also added brocolli which was great and a pinch of celery salt to spice it up!!! Great, easy dish

Wonderful use for leftovers!! We loved this and we don't care for casseroles too much. INstead of making the potatoes from the recipe I just threw in some leftover mashed taters and stopped adding when i liked the consistency. Based on reviews i chopped up some frozen broccoli and threw it in there. Also since this is a recipe designed to use up leftovers i threw in some leftover mixed vegetables from the fridge.I also used cream of chicken soup. Delicous!! Will definately make everytime we have ham. My husband even asked me to wrap the leftovers from this dish for lunch the next day!!

This is a great casserole for those evenings when you have to drive kids to sporting events, and don't have time to prepare dinner. Just amke this the evening before, put it covered in the fridge, and cook it when you get home. The kids will love it, and it sure beats stopping to get fast food on the way home!

This was a really tasty dinner. I only used 7 potatoes. I also added broccoli, onions, and swiss cheese. I can't wait til next Easter so I can make this again!
