Recipe: Ham and Mac Bake

This is a great recipe for that leftover Easter/Christmas ham.

Ham And Mac Bake Ingredients

  • 1 cup elbow macaroni

  • cup butter

  • cup all-purpose flour

  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar

  • 2 tablespoons brown mustard

  • teaspoon salt

  • 1 pinch ground black pepper to taste

  • 2 cups milk

  • 2 cups cubed fully cooked ham

  • 2 cups peeled and sliced Granny Smith apples

  • 1? cups soft bread crumbs

  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted

How to Make Ham And Mac Bake

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook elbow macaroni in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, 8 minutes. Drain.

  3. Melt 1/4 cup butter in a large saucepan over medium heat; whisk flour, brown sugar, mustard, salt, and black pepper into butter. Pour in milk and bring to a simmer; reduce heat to low and whisk until sauce is thick and bubbly, about 5 minutes. Stir macaroni, ham, and apple slices into sauce. Spread mixture into a 2-quart casserole.

  4. Combine soft bread crumbs with 2 tablespoons melted butter in a bowl; sprinkle crumbs over casserole.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven until casserole is bubbly and crumb topping is browned, about 35 minutes.

Ham And Mac Bake Reviews

  • This was exactly what 3 stars says, "It was OK". I was looking forward to this combination, but found it to be a bit sweet for our taste. Everything in this recipe was screaming for me to add cheddar cheese. I DID add the cheese, but not until after Id sampled it as written. The cheese didnt change much, but I did prefer it WITH cheese as to without. This is definately worth giving a try to use leftover ham, it simply wasnt our taste. THANKS for the recipe

  • I cant rate this recipe based on these ingredients given - since I made a few changes that wouldnt be fair. I had leftover ham that needed to be used, so I improvised. I wasnt sure if the mustard was prepared or dry, so I opted for dry since I didnt have brown. I used cracker crumbs and butter for the topping (no breadcrumbs) I also used probably 3/4 c more milk then called for. I omitted the apples as I thought the combination wouldnt work, but after tasting it I think it may have added another flavour dimension.The flavour was interesting, good but not like anything Ive tasted before. I may make it again if I find myself with more leftover ham.
