It’s adapted from Tasty Kitchen, and the recipe can be found at this link.

Ham and Potato Bake Casserole

This was a big hit for dinner last night! I wasn’t sure at first, because it almost seemed too simple. Hubby and I both really enjoyed it and had seconds.

This is so easy, anyone could make it.

The cast of ingredients:

3 medium baking potatoes
1 cup of ham
1/2 onion
1 1/2 cups of grated cheddar cheese

Only 4 ingredients! How much easier could you get than that?

Peel the potatoes and slice thinly.

Dice the ham into small chunks.
Dice the onion.

Grease a casserole dish. I used a 9×9, but anything close to that size should be fine.
Using half of the ingredients, place a layer of potatoes, a layer of ham, a layer of onion, and cover with half the cheese.

Do one more layer in the same order: potatoes, ham, onion, and top with the rest of the cheese.

Bake at 400 for 45-50 minutes.

See what I mean? So easy! It reminded me of the scalloped potatoes and ham my grandmother used to make. Comfort food at it’s finest. Enjoy!
