Ham and Potato Casserole
This Cheesy Ham and potato casserole is creamy, flavorful, and perfect for a cold evening!

As a homeschool mom, I know firsthand how hectic weekdays can be. Between driving the kids to their extracurricular activities and trying to keep up with schoolwork, there’s little time left for cooking.

That’s why I love recipes that are easy to make and require minimal prep time. One of my go-to dishes is ham and potato casserole. It’s a delicious, comforting meal that everyone in my family enjoys.

Quick Ham and Potato Casserole
This quick ham and potato casserole can be made even faster by using pre-diced potatoes found in the refrigerated section of the grocery store.

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!


  • You can use any type of ham you prefer, such as smoked or honey baked.
  • Pump up the flavor a notch by adding in diced onions and green peppers.
  • If you want to add more flavor, you can sprinkle some dried herbs such as thyme or rosemary over the potatoes before layering them.

The creamy cheese sauce 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 or turkey make sure you cook it in a skillet before mixing with the potatoes and baking.

This ham and potato casserole is a simple yet satisfying meal that’s perfect for busy weeknights. It’s easy to customize based on your family’s preferences, and the leftovers make for a great lunch the next day. Give it a try and let me know what you think!
