I am pretty sure I haven’t met anyone who doesn’t love mac and cheese. It’s even better when you can make a whole meal out of it! Try my family’s favorite Broccoli Ham Macaroni and Cheese Casserole recipe.

If your kids are anything like mine, trying to get a piece of broccoli in them is nearly impossible! Well, this recipe did the trick for my daughter. She loved the taste so much she was willing to give broccoli a try just to get to the ham and mac & cheese. I would have to say this recipe is kid approved! At least for us.

Baked mac and cheese has always been one of my all-time favorite meals. But when you add ham well that is a game changer. The two flavors are so great together! I hope you like my version of this family weeknight favorite!

  1. Can you use the regular kraft mac and cheese (with the powdered cheese and milk and butter)?

    1. Hi Beth I do not know if it will come out the same as this version. You can always try. My version has eggs to make it bind together.

  2. I love broccoli casseroles a lot. My kids will almost eat anything that has broccoli in it. This looks like a wonderful dinner option to try.

    1. These instructions are not complete. When do you mix broccoli and the other half of ham in?

      1. Hi Crystal,
        You add all of the ham and 1/2 of the shredded cheese. The other half of the shredded cheese goes on top. Sorry for the confusion.
        Kim
