This is A good Amish recipe. One of my family"s favorite. This recipe is good, with slightly more prep time.
6-8 oz noodles, cooked and drained 3 tbsp butter 3 tbsp flour 1 tbsp mustard 1 1/2 cups milk 2 cups cooked ham, chopped fine or shredded 1 cup celery, chopped fine salt and pepper to taste bread crumbs dots of butter
Combine butter, flour and mustard in saucepan. Add milk gradually, stirring constantly, cook until thick. Add ham, salt, pepper and celery, then stir in the noodles. Pour into greased baking dish. Sprinkle with bread crumbs and dot with butter over the whole mixture. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-45 minutes.

thank you for the recipes.. I retired the first of the year and have been doing the cooking.. When I heard my wife tell her mother she was tired of hot dogs and beans I knew it was time for new recipes.. This site has been great, everything I have tired my wife loves.. Ok this recipe my wife likes but the noodles on top are hard? Did I cook it to long or should I cover it when baking it.. thanks greengrocer (produce man for 40 years)

Congratulations on your retirement after 40 years in the field of greens and welcome to the kitchen turf. We're happy to have you join us at Nancy's Kitchen.
Now, as far a the noodles in the recipe for Baked Noodles with Ham is concerned, assuming the noodles were cooked according to the package directions, they should not have become too hardened on top of the casserole during baking.
If you and your wife liked the casserole well enough to make it again, you might try checking it after 30 minutes of baking to see if it is done to your liking and heated all the way through. If it needs more baking time, you could cover the casserole for the remaining 15 minutes. That would prevent further browning and/or drying of the noodles.
We're glad to hear that you and your wife have enjoyed most of the recipes you have tried so far. We hope you continue to enjoy your visits here.
I enjoy searching the internet to find untold treasures to share with others.
