There’s something about hot gooey cheesy casseroles that is just so comforting on rainy days. Like this Cheesy Ham and Potato Bake, with it’s creamy and cheesy goodness. It’s easy to and quick to put together too, which is another added bonus. There’s no chopping involved here since I use frozen potatoes O’brien which already has the onions and peppers. No need to thaw anything so that takes away a lot of the brain work, and believe me, after a long day, I don’t want to think anymore!
All you have to do is dump all of your ingredients into a bowl and mix it up. If you’re not a fan of broccoli, or don’t have any on hand, any frozen vegetable will work. Cauliflower would be great, carrots, green beans, whatever you like. Or maybe even a combination of veggies. Just try to keep it between 12-16 ounces of veggies and you’re golden. If you have leftover ham, this recipe is perfect to help use it up. However, I didn’t have leftover ham, so I bought ham already cubed and ready to go from the grocery store. No chopping involved. Just open the packages and dump.
Spread that deliciousness into a prepared glass 13×9 inch dish, sprinkle with as much or as little Parmesan cheese as you desire, and it’s ready for the oven. I think a grated Asiago cheese would be awesome on this in place of Parmesan, or maybe even a mixture of the two. This dish is really versatile folks.
Pop that baby in the oven, and in 1 hour dinner is ready to enjoy! Add a delicious tossed crisp green salad to accompany this yummy casserole, and you’ve got a well rounded meal, with little effort.
