Ratings & Reviews



I have made this recipe several times and it always gets rave reviews. I ask the deli for a little thicker than sandwich slices of Black Forest Ham and use slices of Jalapeno Jack instead of shredded. A great winter dish!


This recipe did not cook properly. The ham made it so the meat around the ham was raw, and the rest was cooked. Even leaving it in the oven for two extra hours at a lower temperature did not cook the meat around the ham.


Simple and quick. I will make again. Will increase the amount of cheese. I will also sprinkle cheese on top in the last few minutes of baking.


As with other reveiwers I added more BBQ sauce and a little more cheese, and it was not dry at all. I thought it might like for flavour, however, so I threw in a package of onion soup mix and the end result was pretty darn good. I'd make this, or a meatloaf like it, again.


Although it was good, I would double the cheese and BBQ sauce. It wasn't as cheesy as I was hoping and a little dry. I would make it again doubling the cheese and sauce.
