Raise your hand if you have leftover ham. Now raise your hand if you’re sort of tired of cooking.
I’m not completely sick of cooking, but at times like this I sure wish we had pizza delivery available. This super easy recipe came from my desire to use up leftover ham from Christmas dinner, and my desire for an easy dinner. I also had to consider the fact that we had 6 people to feed, 4 of whom are big eaters. We served ours with asparagus, salad and rolls.
Leftover Ham and Potato Bake
1 – 32 ounce bag frozen hash brown potatoes, I used the southern style
2 – 10 3/4 ounce cans Cream of Potato soup
1 1/2 cups sour cream
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 to 1 1/2 cups cooked ham, diced
1 cup diced red and/or green peppers
4 to 5 diced green onions
1/4 tsp black pepper, more or less to taste
1 cup Panko bread crumbs
1 1/2 cups freshly grated Parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 375*
Mix together all the ingredients, except the bread crumbs and the Parmesan cheese. Pour into a greased 9 x 13″ pan. Mix the bread crumbs and the Parmesan cheese together and sprinkle over the top of the casserole. Bake at 375* for approximately 1 hour, until golden brown and bubbly.
