This is a delicious spin on some good ole comfort food! I’m all about comfort foods when it’s chilly like this! There’s nothing better than curling up on the couch with a warm ‘n cozy cuddly blanket and some good ole comfort food!
Today I’m sharing my Cheesy Ham & Potato Bake Recipe:
4 potatoes peeled and diced
2 cups Milk
8 oz Queso Blanco Cheese (I use Velveeta Queso Blanco–it melts perfectly)
4 TBS Stick Butter/Margarine
4 TBS Flour
1/4 Cup Shredded Cheddar
1 LB Diced Ham
Peel, Dice, and boil potatoes until tender and drain.
Melt butter in a sauce pan, add in flour, mix well and quickly– you don’t want it to burn! Add in the milk, continue mixing as you add in the queso blanco cheese. Let all the ingredients melt but keep stirring….once all ingredients are melted turn the burner off.
Mix together sauce, potatoes, and ham in a casserole dish. Sprinkle with cheese (sometimes I add paprika too) and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
This is also really good with chicken, steak, or even turkey! I like to change it up depending on my mood. Although, if you do chicken make sure you dice it and cook it in a skillet before mixing with the potatoes and baking.
