Baked Ham and Tomato Macaroni and Cheese

I wanted to make macaroni and cheese with ham and tomato, and I found recipes that included ham, and ones that included tomatoes… but didn’t find one that included both. (I didn’t do an extensive search, I’m sure they are out there.) So I took this recipe from and added tomatoes, as well as a couple other changes.


Here’s what you need:

  • 8 ounces of macaroni (I used medium shells)
  • 2 cups of shredded cheese (I used mozzarella)
  • 8 ounces of ham steak
  • 1 fresh tomato, diced
  • 3/4 cup of sour cream
  • 1 cup of cottage cheese
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 1/3 cup of bread crumbs

And here are my simple instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees while you cook macaroni on stove top according to instructions on box, drain.
  2. Stir 1 and 1/4 cup of cheese in with macaroni, then the egg, sour cream, cottage cheese, ham and tomato.
  3. Place all in a baking dish (sprayed with non stick spray) and top with remaining 3/4 cup of cheese and the bread crumbs.
  4. Cook for 30 minutes.


That’s all, super easy, super yummy! Hope you like it!
