This was a good recipe to use out the last of our Easter ham. I read all the reviews before trying it and took a few of the suggestions. I peeled and microwaved my potatoes in a covered dish with a few tablespoons of water until they were mostly cooked. I added water to the soup instead of milk, to cut some fat and calories. I didn't even miss it - the soup was creamy enough on its own. And I added about 1 1/2 cup of frozen peas, a generous amount of black pepper and onion powder (don't care for big chunks of onion!) Rather than doing layers, I just mixed everything together then spread it over the sliced potatoes.
Pre-cooking the potatoes was a huge time saver. I baked the casserole for 25 minutes, then topped it with a few slices of swiss cheese and baked another 6 minutes until it was all melty and bubbly.
I can see how some could find this bland - I really did hit this with a lot of black pepper, even adding more on top once it was on my plate. But the flavors all went really nicely together and my husband and I both enjoyed this meal. I will definitely use this recipe again the next time I have leftover ham.
