Cheesy Ham And Potatoes

Ham, potatoes, and cheese is a favorite meal around here. It’s perfect year-round, but especially on those cold days.

And, there’s nothing better than a hot cheesy meal with ham and potatoes to warm you up.

DISCLAIMER: This post is sponsored by the Iowa Pork Producers Association. As always, the opinions are honest and are all my own. 

This is also a great meal to add veggies to. You can get some peas, broccoli, or your favorite veggie into the dish for a well-rounded supper for the family.

Cheesy ham and potato casserole is also one of the easiest meals to make, and only takes a few minutes to get it ready and into the oven, with only one hour to cook.

Plus, you can make it a day ahead of time or freeze it. Just pull it right out of the fridge or freezer and bake it.

Buying Pork For More Than Just A Meal

One of the things I love about this meal is that when you buy ham or any pork product, you are supporting farms all across America.

One-third of the pork, in the US, is raised in the state of Iowa. When you buy from the grocery store or a butcher shop, you are helping support those farms and families.

Farming has changed a lot since I was a kid spending time on my grandparent’s farm.

The Iowa Pork Producers Association and Iowa farmers are also invested in today’s youth by teaching leadership skills, offering contests, giving scholarships, and helping youth learn to take care of animals.

According to Iowapork.org, “Every day, the efforts of pig farmers and all those associated with pork production on Iowa farms and those across America demonstrate care and concern for how pork is produced.”

Step-By-Step Instructions

Start by cutting up the ham and setting it to the side.

I bought a small two-pound pre-cooked ham and cut up about half of it, equalling three cups.

One of the great things about this dish is that you can switch it out with different types of pork including ground sausage, country ham, Italian sausage or top it with crumbled bacon.

It’s a very versatile dinner.

Make-Ahead Ham And Cheese Casserole

The casserole can be made ahead and frozen or refrigerated.

If you freeze the casserole, simply make the meal, cover it with plastic wrap and tin foil, and freeze for up to a month.

When ready to bake, thaw it in the refrigerator for a day and cook.

Or, add the frozen meal to the oven and cook at least 30 minutes longer than the specified cooking time.

Be sure to check the center to make sure it cooked all the way through, before serving.

The meal can also be made a day ahead and kept in the refrigerator.

TIP: If you freeze the meal, be sure to remove the plastic wrap before cooking. I will write a note to remind myself on top of the tin foil, with a Sharpie marker, so I don’t forget.
