Ham and Cheese Scalloped Potato Casserole

Easter is coming up, and I don’t know about you, but we ALWAYS have a ton of leftover ham. Not that I’m complaining because ham is hamazing, but eventually got have to start repurposing it into some other meals.

This Ham and Cheese Scalloped Potato Casserole has been one of my very favorites. Creamy white sauce is poured over layers of thinly sliced potatoes and ham, and then topped with cheese. It is like a ham and cheese lasagna.

I like the ham sliced nice and thin and layered in with the potatoes. If you wanted to save time you could use bagged frozen hashbrowns for this and cubed ham. You would lose the layered effect, but the end result would be largely the same.

We served this with a big pile of steamed broccoli and some fresh bread.

Thanks, Lily! The great thing about casseroles is that they don't have to look pretty to taste great.
