When I married Larry, he came with a few family recipes that he just loved. I added them to my recipe file. In the past few months, I’ve been changing our eating habits and making healthier meals. Here is the updated version of Broccoli, Ham and Cheese Casserole!
Broccoli, Ham & Cheese Casserole #Recipe
- 12 ounces Noodles
- 1 head Broccoli chopped
- 1 pkg Shredded Cheddar Cheese divided - 1/4 bag for top, 3/4 bag for casserole
- 1 1/2 cups diced Ham
- 1 7oz pkg Plain Greek Yogurt
- 1/2 cup Milk
- 12-15 crumbled Ritz Crackers optional
- Pepper to taste
Cook and drain noodles.
Dice the ham and chop the broccoli.
Mix all ingredients in a 9x13 baking dish, top with 1/4 bag of cheese and crumbled Ritz Crackers.
Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes.
Ritz Crackers are optional - I don't always use them, but they do add a good flavor.
This recipe used Mayo before I swapped that out for Greek Yogurt. If you use Mayo, it calls for 1/2 cup.
You can use more or less ham, depending on what you like.
My kids don’t love broccoli, so I chop it in teeny-tiny pieces that can’t be picked out very easily. My mother-in-law’s recipe called for mayonnaise but I knew there had to be a better way so I swapped it for Greek yogurt. (Just make sure you buy plain!)
Broccoli Ham & Cheese Casserole is an easy meal and makes our meal rotation at least once a month. I hope you’ll give it a try!

*I don’t know where the recipe originated, but my husband’s family made Broccoli, Ham and Cheese Casserole all the time when he was younger. I’ve altered it to make it (in my opinion) healthier. ENJOY!
