My grocery store had quarters of ham, but the ones that were already sliced as lunch meat cost a great deal less than the ones that weren't cut. So I used sliced ham rather than buying an uncut quarter of ham and cubing it. It worked well, but I wonder if we would have gotten more ham flavor in each bit if we'd used cubes instead. It is broccoli-ful, which is fine because my family likes broccoli. Also, I would say that, aside from the cheese and ham, there isn't much "seasoning" flavor, so it's a simple dinner dish.
