With Easter right around the corner, I thought I would share with you one our favourite ways to use up leftover ham – a Ham and Cheese Potato Casserole! It’s a super cheesy ham and potato bake that is nicely served with a side of veggies or a fresh salad and warm biscuits!

Can I Freeze Ham and Cheese Potato Casserole?

 

Yes! I like to make mine in two 8×8 dishes so we can eat one and put the other in the freezer for a quick and easy meal another night.

Try these homemade Garlic and Cheese Whole Wheat Biscuits with your casserole, they are easy to make and so yummy warm out of the oven!

  1. Looks delish! And perfect timing – I have a ham just waiting for Easter dinner and it’s way too big for just one meal. Yay for leftovers!

      I love easy leftovers!

      • Bonnie Prall says

        I love easy recipes too! Thanks for sharing! I’ve made à similar dish with sliced potatoes , no bread crumbs because I’m gluten intolerant. Casseroles are a staple in my world! Single working mom of 2 active girl, while I went to school for my nursing degree. The second tray for the freezer saves prep time so we have more family time too! Great sharing!

  2. This looks so perfect for Easter Brunch!

    • momvstheboys says

      You could definitely do a brunch with it, possibly even subbing in crushed corn flakes mixed with a touch of melted butter instead of the italian bread crumbs.

  3. This looks so delicious I want to go out and get some ham slices sold at the meat counter nearest to the bacon, sausage, etc.!!! Love getting these easy meal solutions even for the summer if it gives me more time outside tinkering with all my gardens!
