Ham and Potato Casserole

I wanted to create a meal for my kids that I enjoyed growing up. This recipe does have a little prep but it is so worth it.

How to Make

Step 1: Start by slicing up your potatoes and dicing your ham. Also you will want to preheat the oven. 

Step 2: In a saucepan over medium heat add in your broth, heavy cream, and other ingredients to create the sauce. 

You need to stir continuously. It will take a bit of time but after awhile you will notice the sauce begins to thicken. 

Step 3: Once the sauce is ready, then assemble your ham and potato casserole and place in the oven to bake. 

Once done, remove and serve with your favorite sides. 

What To Serve With 

Honestly, you can eat alone or pair with your favorite sides. This is such a hearty dish. 

Storing Leftovers of Casserole

Your casserole can store in the fridge for up to 3-4 days. Always use your judgement in terms of quality of the dish. When in doubt toss it out. 

This casserole reheats well, and can be used to meal prep. Just place in single serve containers for a grab and go meal.

Due to the dairy this potato casserole doesn’t freeze and thaw well. You will find the dairy can curdle and seperate a bit as it thaws. 

Can I Leave Out The Ham

If you want a meatless dish go ahead and leave out the ham. In terms of the chicken broth go ahead and reach for a vegetable broth. 

Those two swaps will provide a vegetarian dish that is just as tasty and hearty!

I have done this both ways and while we prefer meat, sometimes if I want a side dish I make without. 

Does this Recipe Double Well

Potatoes are always a great holiday dish, potluck side, and great for serving a crowd. 

If you need a larger batch then simply double the recipe. Just use two pans and cook in the oven as directed.

Or if you own a larger pan you could cook that way as well. Just remember that depending on the thickness of the casserole, time could vary on cook time.
