Ingredients for Ham & Potato Casserole
Ham – You can use pre-cooked or leftover ham, or even sausage links or bacon bits.
Potatoes – Cut the potatoes into bite sized pieces or use a half potato & half sweet potato blend. Even hashbrowns will work.
Vegetables – Sweet peas are a classic addition, but you can use other veggies too. Try green beans, carrots, or diced tomatoes. Fresh broccoli, cauliflower, or zucchini also work great.
Cheese Sauce – The sauce is delicious with butter, chicken broth, and whole milk. I love ham with cheddar cheese but Monterey jack, or a Mexican cheese blend work well too. If you prefer, heavy cream can replace the milk, or you can use a can of cream of mushroom soup instead.
What Goes with Ham & Potato Casserole?
All the meat, veggies, and starch are in this delish one-dish, so serve a simple salad like this bright and tangy beet salad, or a classic wedge salad. For breakfast, add a side of fluffy scrambled eggs, and homemade biscuits.
Storing Ham & Potato Casserole

Preheat oven to 400°F.
Over medium heat, melt butter in a saucepan. Add onion and stir until softened, about 4 minutes. Add flour and cook an additional 2 while stirring.

Place ½ of the potatoes in a 3 qt pan. Sprinkle with ham and peas. Top with remaining potatoes. Pour sauce over top.
Cover with foil and bake 45-50 minutes or until potatoes are fork tender. Remove foil (carefully, it will steam), top with remaining cheese, and bake an additional 15-20 minutes or until potatoes are soft and cheese is lightly browned.
This casserole will keep in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days and will keep in the freezer for 1 month.
