    I want to make this again and not be in such a hurry. i only got to taste it as a leftover but I thought it was good. That being said, it was leftover so how good can it be? Turns out it was a super crazy night in our house so dinner wasn’t priority. My daughter wasn’t a fan of cracker topping but we were. easy fix! i will make this again when i can give it the TLC it deserves

    I added leftover thanksgiving ham. Really good and creamy. The crust did not do well in a toaster oven, it pretty much got kinda burnt. Use a regular oven.
