Prep Time:  15 minutes

Cooking Time:  40 minutes

Serves:  6

I nabbed this recipe from the Betty Crocker website, I wish I could claim it as mine, but it was so delicious I felt there was nothing that needed changing.  So good that by the time I finish entering this recipe I’m going to want to make it!

3 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
1 cup diced cooked ham
1 cup uncooked elbow macaroni
2 1/4 cups milk
2 eggs
1/2 cup Bisquick
1/4 teaspoon salt

1. Heat oven to 400°F. Grease a 10-inch glass deep-dish pie plate with cooking spray. You can also use a glass 13×9-inch casserole pan. **Do Not use a pie pan smaller then 10-inch, I did and the ingredients did not fit!

2. In a large bowl, mix 2 cups of the cheese, the ham, and the uncooked macaroni. Spread in baking pan.

3. In an electric mixer OR a blender, place milk and eggs. Cover; mix/blend on medium speed until smooth. Add Bisquick and salt; blend until smooth. Pour over mixture in baking pan.

4. Bake at 400°F for 35 to 40 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake 1 to 2 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
