Ingredients and Variations

Meat – Leftover holiday ham is perfect in this recipe as are bacon pieces, precooked breakfast sausages, and sliced summer sausage.
Veggies – Any veggies will do! Use leftovers or a frozen medley.
Sauce – Ready-made Alfredo sauce and freshly shredded cheddar cheese provide a rich and creamy sauce for this casserole, but a handful of blue cheese or feta crumbles can also be tossed in for a more cheesy flavor. Or make it from scratch!

How to Make Ham and Potato Casserole

- Pour mixture into a prepared casserole dish and top with shredded cheddar.
- Bake until cheese is melted and bubbly on top. Serve with a dollop of sour cream, salsa, guacamole, or more shredded cheese.
Tips for Success!
- For best results, let the casserole rest for a few minutes before cutting and serving.
- Prep ham and potato casserole the night before and keep it covered and chilled until ready to bake.
- Freeze the prepared casserole in a parchment paper-lined casserole dish and then remove the frozen casserole so the dish can be used for another purpose. Wrap the casserole in plastic wrap and aluminum foil and freeze for up to 3 months. Place the frozen casserole back in the casserole dish and thaw overnight in the refrigerator before baking in Step 4.
- Serve ham and potato casserole on its own or with a tasty tomato salad or a fresh strawberry salad. The options are endless with this versatile dish.
