With Easter ham dinner coming up, you MAY be in need for a way to use some leftover ham up. So I thought I should share!  Hope you guys enjoy.

Chicken Cordon Blue Casserole

1 1/2 – 2 c. leftover cooked ham
1 1/2 – 2 c. leftover cooked chicken or turkey
2 TB. butter
2 TB. flour
1/2 tsp. chicken bouillon granules
dash of pepper
1/2 c. water
1/2 c. milk
1 1/2 c.  cheese (can use Monterey Jack, cheddar, Swiss ~WHATEVER)
box of stuffing mix (maybe 6 oz.?? the add hot water kind)
1/2 c. cheddar cheese (opt.) for topping

Prepare the stuffing according to box directions.

Melt butter, add flour, chicken bouillon and pepper. Whisk till smooth. Slowly add the water and milk and heat till thickened.

Put the ham and chicken or turkey in a 9″ x 13″ pan (greased) ~ or you can use a smaller pan. Pour the sauce over (if using canned cream soup, then thin with a splash of milk). Top with cheese. Top with prepared stuffing. Sprinkle with extra cheese, just cause.

Bake @ 350° for about 40-50 minutes till heated through and top is a bit browned. Serve and enjoy.

(I usually serve with mashed potatoes and a vegetable.)

Thanks Jess for the recipe.
