Cheesy Ham and Hashbrown Casserole

Hi! For the most part I really do try to stick with eating lower carb so if that’s what you are looking for today, this is not the place for you. I like to call this recipe: I had a ham in the deep freeze so I cooked it in the crockpot and then had no idea what to do with it.

After we had a meal of ham and potatoes and salad, and ham and swiss sliders, I decided I’d use some more of it in a casserole! I found this recipe from https://www.cocoandash.com/cheesy-ham-hashbrowns/ and tweaked it just a tiny bit to make it work with what we had. Everyone here really liked it, so we will definitely try it again.

Ingredients:

  1. Leftover cooked ham. About 1/5 cups, cut into cubes
  2. 1 cup sour cream
  3. I can cream of potato soup
  4. 1/4 cup butter, melted
  5. 30 ounce bag of frozen hashbrowns
  6. 1/3 cup diced onion
  7. 1 cup Parmesan cheese
  8. 1/2 cup cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix together the two types of cheese and then reserve 1 cup of it for the topping. Set it aside for later. Note: You will mix everything else together in a very large bowl. When I did this I found that even my biggest bowl wasn’t big enough. I would add hashbrowns just a little at a time, and then I used a bowl with a lid so I could put the lid on and shake it all together.

Spray a 9 x 13 casserole dish with cooking spray and then dump the contents of the bowl into the dish. Sprinkle remaining cheese on top. Cook for one hour. So good and easy and a great way to use up leftover ham!

What are your favorite recipes to use up ham leftovers?
