This macaroni and cheese ham casserole by Catherine’s Plates on YouTube is a great Thanksgiving leftover recipe if you have a lot of ham to spare. It’s an easy mac and cheese recipe, and I love casseroles so this would be cheesy goodness. Casseroles come in handy if you want to use up old ingredients or leftovers to make a new dish. Honestly, I would make this mac and cheese recipe on its own without the ham too. I love how creamy this is, and I never thought about using cheddar cheese soup. I think it’s cool to see the many different ways to make mac and cheese too.
First, preheat the oven to 375F, and lightly spray a 9 x 13 baking dish. Then, in a large bowl, whisk together cheddar cheese soup, sour cream, milk, and all seasonings. Add the chopped ham, shredded cheese, and drained pasta. Mix everything together.
Next, pour the mac and cheese ham mixture into the prepared baking dish, and cover with foil. Bake for 25 minutes. Remove the foil, and add the remaining shredded cheese over the casserole. Place back in the oven uncovered for about 5-6 minutes.
This is a great idea if you have ham leftovers, and normally I do have a lot of meat leftovers rather than the sides. This is a great recipe because my mac and cheese is usually a hit and gone before there are leftovers.
