Mac & Cheese + Ham & Broccoli

I came up with this recipe when my older son was a toddler with a rapidly shrinking interest in meat and vegetables. It’s been a family favorite ever since. ~K

Mac & Cheese + Ham & Broccoli

INGREDIENTS

approximately 1.5 cups broccoli florets
2 x 6.3-oz boxes whole wheat macaroni and cheese (Kraft or equivalent)
approximately 1.5 cups ham, cubed or cut into small, thin slices
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup milk (I use 2%)

DIRECTIONS

Steam the broccoli until tender. Set aside.

Cook the macaroni according to instructions or until desired tenderness. Add the butter and broccoli, then stir until the butter is melted. Add the cheese powder, followed by the milk, stirring after each addition until well blended.

Serve immediately.
