Creamy Ham & Potato Casserole Recipe Is So Easy & Delish (5-Ingredients) by Ann Marie Patitucci

Creamy Ham & Potato Casserole Recipe Is So Easy & Delish (5-Ingredients)

If you’ve read a few of my recipes, you likely know that I live with a couple of carnivores: my husband and younger son. My older son and I are herbivores; we’re not vegetarian but we prefer carbs, fruits and vegetables. That said, all of my boys love pork. I make a pretty good (and easy) honey-glazed ham if I do say so myself, and I enjoy it, too. We usually have it just once a year on Easter and I was just thinking that I should make it more often.

I was also thinking about how I hate to throw food away, especially with food banks working hard to meet people’s food needs. So I came up with a simple idea: I’d bake a ham and then use the leftover ham in a potato and ham casserole.

I happen to have the easiest ham and potato casserole recipe ever. If you are looking for a quick and easy weeknight dinner, this definitely fits the bill (the frozen potatoes make a big difference). If you are a meat-and-potatoes person or family, this might be a nice twist on that. If you’re looking for a way to use leftover ham, look no further. And if you’d like two dinners that work together and prevent waste, then make the ham and follow it with the casserole the next night (just note that cooked ham only lasts about five to seven days in the fridge). If you have leftover casserole, serve it for breakfast!

This is a satisfying budget-friendly dinner that you can serve with a salad or nothing at all. Just grab a fork and get eating!
