Simple Potato Ham Bake

This is a simple recipe that I like to make when I have leftover ham.  I usually double the recipe.


  • 4 cups sliced cooked potatoes
  • 1-1/2 cups cooked ham
  • 1 can Cream of Mushroom soup
  • 1 cup sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 TBS. instant minced onion
  • 1/8 tsp. pepper
  • 1 – 2 slices bread
  • 2 TBS melted butter

 Cook the potatoes until done (little firm, not mushy).  Layer half of the potatoes in a 2 qt. casserole.  Stir together cubed ham, mushroom soup. ½ cup Cheddar cheese, instant minced onion, milk and pepper.  Pour half of the ham mixture over potatoes.  Repeat layers.

Tear bread into small pieces and mix with the other ½ cup Cheddar cheese and melted butter.  Spread over casserole.  Bake uncovered at 350 degrees about 45 minutes or until bread is browned and crunchy.


I like a double batch with one layer of potatoes and one layer of mixture in a 9” x 13” pan.  It requires a little more bread topping, but provides more crunch!

  1. You say to cover the casserole but to cook uncovered. Do you mean cook covered but uncover the last 15 min?

    • Whoops, I revised something and messed that up! Thanks for asking, I have fixed it. Bake uncovered so the bread pieces get crunchy.
