HOW TO MAKE THIS HAM AND CHEESE CASSEROLE
Sometimes I make Hot Ham & Cheese Rollups, and now I have a new option. Even though the pictures do not do it justice, Hot Ham & Cheese “Unwich” Casserole is delicious. It reminded me so much of my favorite sub without all the bread.
I prepared it in a 9X9 pan, just in case we didn’t love it, but we devoured all but one piece. You can change this up to best suit your tastes by switching up the deli meat, cheese, and toppings. It would also be fabulous served on top of a bed of lettuce. I threw everything together so there won’t be exact measurements or macros, as the nutritional info will depend on what and how much of the ingredients you use.
