Cheddar ‘n’ Ham macaroni

We are HUGE macaroni and cheese fans!  I personally can’t eat the box brands anymore but I love some good homemade macaroni and cheese!  I had a lot and I mean a lot of Honey Baked Ham leftovers from the weekend family get together.  I didn’t want to waste that delicious ham so I started looking for quick recipes on line.  I found a few but of course I was missing a few ingredients and the baby was napping and I just wanted to get dinner started. So we had to get creative!  As I was searching the pantry for some of the ingredients I came across a can of Campbells Cheddar Cheese soup. I thought I would try it and if dinner was a complete fail then we can have cereal.
Needless to say, we didn’t eat cereal! 
I thought this quick meal was delicious.  I was convinced that dinner was NOT going to taste good.
 I even waited for the hubs to take his first bite to see is reaction…shhh don’t tell him.

Cheddar ‘n’ Ham Macaroni

2 cups cooked macaroni, I like mine to al dente
1 can Campbells Cheddar Cheese Soup
1/4 cup milk
1.5 cups cubed ham
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup bread crumbs, I used italian bread crumbs
2 Tbsp butter, melted

Cook noodles until tender and strain water.  Add in ham, salt, cheese soup and milk, stir until combined Try not to over stir so your noodles won’t get mushy.  Place in a greased 13×9 pan.  Spread evenly.  In a bowl melt butter, add in bread crumbs until coated.  Lightly sprinkle crumbs on top of macaroni and bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes.
