Cheesy Ham and Potato Casserole
Ever since I discovered how easy it is to cook a ham in an instant pot, I buy ham whenever it is on sale! My family loves a good honey ham after church on Sunday with scalloped potatoes and homemade rolls (if I’m feeling ambitious!) but we always have a ton of ham leftover!
That’s where this ham and potato casserole comes in! While my kids love ham, they won’t just go into the refrigerator and eat any of the leftover slices because “we just had that yesterday”. (insert eye roll here) I need to come up with other recipes that will use the leftover ham but I don’t want to spend all day in the kitchen. That’s why this casserole is the perfect recipe.
With the ham already cooked and ready to go, simply dice it and then pour it in a casserole dish with a few simple ingredients my kids love, and dinner is served!
How to Make Ham and Potato Casserole
Nothing crazy in this one! Everything you need requires just one trip to the grocery store!
- Ham – cooked and cubed in bite-sized pieces
- Frozen Potatoes – get the Potatoes O’Brien with potatoes, peppers and onions. If you don’t like the chunkiness of the peppers and onions, you can use regular frozen potatoes and add a teaspoon or two of some onion powder or garlic powder. If you make it this way, you’ll need to whisk the spices with the cream of chicken soup to make sure it gets evenly distributed.
- Shredded Cheddar Cheese – you technically could use whatever cheese you have on-hand. I prefer cheddar, but swiss or mozzarella are good options too!
- Cream of Chicken Soup
- Sour Cream
- Optional Ingredients: broccoli florets, frozen peas, or any other small vegetables you love!
Making this casserole is as easy as it gets! Just grab a square casserole dish and follow these easy steps.
- Grab a large bowl and toss in your ham, some frozen potatoes, shredded cheese, cream of chicken soup, and some sour cream.
- Stir until everything is combined.
- Evenly spread the ham and potato mixture into a square casserole dish. (No need to spray or butter the dish. The sauce in this casserole keeps it from sticking.)
- You could bake this as-is, but I like to sprinkle it with just a little more cheese on top!
- Bake in the oven at 350 degrees F for 45 minutes and you’re good to go!
Can You Freeze Ham and Potato Casserole
Yes, you can freeze this delicious cheesy ham casserole recipe so that it is ready when you are. (Leftover Ham Casserole is delicious!!!) Before freezing it, wrap the baking dish tightly in plastic wrap and then cover it with foil. Be sure to write the date you put it in the freezer on the foil and then you can freeze the casserole for about 2-3 months.
When you’re ready to use it, thaw it overnight in your refrigerator. Sprinkle a couple extra tablespoons of shredded cheese on top and then bake it according to the directions above.
