  • 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.

  • 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.

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

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

Tip

Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

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 I'd sampled it as written. The cheese didn't 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 wasn't our taste. THANKS for the recipe!

I can't rate this recipe based on these ingredients given - since I made a few changes that wouldn't be fair. I had leftover ham that needed to be used so I improvised. I wasn't sure if the mustard was prepared or dry so I opted for dry since I didn't 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 wouldn't work but after tasting it I think it may have added another flavour dimension. The flavour was interesting good but not like anything I've tasted before. I may make it again if I find myself with more leftover ham.
