A simple casserole made with ham, corn and cheese. Works well as a main dish or side dish. If you like less salty food, use garlic powder in place of the garlic salt.

This recipe was good but I did make some changes after reading reviews. First of all I soaked my ham in cold water for an hour after dicing to leach out some of the salt. I used garlic powder instead of salt. I also used low sodium canned corn and only used 2 eggs. I used cream of mushroom soup as I could not find cream of asparagus but I did add a can of chopped asparagus to it well drained. Instead of the bread crumbs I used left over corn bread that I had crumbled and mixed with 3 strips of crispy bacon chopped well this turned out wonderfully. The salt content was not a problem and it was very flavorful. anytime you are dealing with a salt cured meat such as ham there are ways to reduce the salt content you just have to do the extra step and soak it! I will definitely make this again my family loved it! Read More

Followed the recipe. Too much egg and was very runny after coming out of oven. Did not add any extra liquid to soup and drained corn completely. Would not make this again. Read More

I'm glad I read the reviews... I added sauteed garlic and whipping cream to help counter-balance the saltiness. I also added a tablespoon of sweet honey mustard. Plus a handful of frozen peas for color. Creamy goodness! Read More

We liked it. Kids too. I'm glad I used garlic powder instead of garlic salt. There's enough salt from the other ingredients. I couldn't find Crm. of asparagus so I substituted Crm of Broccoli. It worked fine. Next time I'll try some other mix of bread crumbs. This time was Italian and it was good but I'd like to see what another will do to the dish. Very easy. Read More

I had never heard of cream of asparagus soup but I did use cream/mushroom. I used granulated garlic and garlic/herb seasoned bread crumbs. Because ham is salty in addition to using canned items and store-bought bread crumbs this recipe has no way to control the salt content. My husband thanks to him was able to eat it. I couldn't eat but more than two bites. I fed my 1 yr old a serving and put some ranch on it to help with some flavor and it tasted worse. I'm surprised she ate it (maybe it was just the ranch). All the same this would be perfect for someone not worried about high salt content but certainly not for me. Read More

I used bagged stuffing for the bread crumbs. Garlic powder instead of salt it's quite salty enough without it. Read More
