My Aunt Kay co-owned a restaurant and this is her special recipe. A MUST for left-over ham! Over the years I've made it easier and single family sized. ENJOY!

  3. Mix with gravy.
  4. Add ham, gravy, and cheese to macaroni, mix well.
  5. (reserve a bit of cheese for top).

My wife requested mac and cheese with ham for her birthday dinner so I found this recipe. I loved it! Unfortunately she didn't. She didn't like the flavor the gravy imparted to the dish, or I would have given it 5 stars. I used regular Kraft mac and cheese, and doubled the recipe. But, I omitted the onion as my wife is allergic.

I gave this recipe 3 stars. I made this for my families dinner. I had some ham I wanted to use up. When I made this I used Kraft mac & cheese. I also used canned gravy which I used the whole 10oz can. I left the cheese off the top. Overall I'd make this for sure. Thanks for posting a good recipe. Christine (internetnut)
