Another recipe for using up the Christmas ham

I have a lot of ham leftover from Christmas so I thought I would post a few extra recipes using ham. These are not necessarily freezable.

Creamy Macaroni and Cheese Ham Bake Serves 4
1-7.25 oz package of macaroni and cheese dinner mix
1 1/2 cups cubed cooked ham
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup cream style cottage cheese
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 cup soft bread crumbs
1 tablespoon snipped fresh parsley
1 tablespoon butter, melted

Preheat oven to 375. Prepare macaroni and cheese mix according to package directions, except do not add salt to water. Stir in ham, 1 cup of cheddar cheese, cottage cheese, sour cream, onion and pepper. Transfer mixture to an ungreased 1 1/2 quart baking dish.

In a small bowl, combine bread crumbs and if desired, parsley; stir in melted butter. Sprinkle over macaroni mixture. Sprinkle with the remaining 1/2 cup cheddar cheese.

Bake uncovered about 30 minutes or until mixture is heated through and crumbs are golden.
