How to make country ham and potato bake

Print this recipe
I'm a true potato lover. I would happily eat potatoes every day of the week, but sometimes even I get bored of the usual mashed, roasted or baked versions. This simple, rustic ham and potato casserole recipe is a wonderful way to reignite your potato love. Serve it as a hearty side, a simple weeknight entree or even for breakfast or brunch.
I always make this recipe when I have leftover ham. You can substitute any cheese you like or have on hand for the cheddar. Gruyere, Swiss or a blend of cheeses would all work.

Country ham and potato bake
6
15 minutes
45 minutes
1 hour
8 ounces cream cheese
3/4 cup whole milk
1 cup grated cheddar cheese, divided
1 pound red-skinned potatoes, thinly sliced
4 green onions, thinly sliced
1-1/2 cups cooked ham, cubed
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
In a medium saucepan, combine the cream cheese, milk and half of the cheese and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture is hot and the cheese is melted, about 3 minutes.
Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Arrange the potatoes in an even layer in a baking dish and sprinkle the green onions and ham on top. Pour the sauce over the top, cover with aluminum foil and bake for 45 minutes.
Remove the foil and sprinkle the remaining cheese over the top. Bake, uncovered, until the cheese is melted and slightly browned and the sauce is bubbling.

We've all been there. The clock says it's time to eat, but you have no time (or desire) to head to the kitchen for 30-minutes of prepping and cooking.
