Added onions and garlic as per other reviewer suggestions. Also used fresh spinach and wilted it with more garlic.
Excellent! As usual I can't just follow a recipe - I tweaked it a bit. I added a thinly sliced small onion and some minced garlic from reading the reviews. Made this with fresh spinach, just wilted it down and chopped it, also added at the end a diced tomato for a bit more color. 1% milk worked just fine. And I agree - fresh basil would have been good-
Didn't add the spinach or bay leaf, and came out great. Next time I'd add peas or broccoli for some veggies.
This was good and came together easily. It's very rich, so I think I'd prefer it as a side dish. I added some diced onion to the butter/ham/mushrooms and enjoyed the added texture/flavor (I'd add some minced garlic, too, if I made it again). The recipe doesn't mention removing the bay leaf before serving, but be sure you do. THANKS for the recipe!
Very easy recipe. Creamy and cheesy. Great way to use up ham. I used skim milk so I don't think it was as 'high fat' as a person might think. I used ground bay leaf seasoning rather than the bay leaf but other than that, I followed the recipe exactly. When basil is fresh and on hand, it would be a great addition.
This was wonderful. I wanted to use leftover Easter ham & didn't want to make a casserole. I didn't have mushrooms, so I followed the advise of other reviews & added onion & garlic. The sauce was really thick so I put in extra milk. That didn't work so I put in chicken broth. Also, the ham sort of got in the way of stirring so I took most of it out of the pan. It was absolutely delicious.
My family went bonkers over this. I did add onion and garlic because I love them. I did have to add some broth, but that was probably because I was increasing the recipe and probably messed up the amounts. Lol. A big thumbs up from my family and we will be making this again.
Very tasty, with a few tweaks. I followed the recipe for the most part, but added thinly sliced onions with the mushrooms. I also used fresh spinach which I added to the mushrooms and onions to wilt just before adding the flour and milk. I did not add extra salt to the dish, but did add some black pepper. My husband and I both liked this and will probably make again.
