cubed fully cooked ham
chopped green bell pepper
milk, or more as needed

shredded Cheddar cheese

This was very good. The only changes I will make the next time will be to be sure and drain the ham/onion mixture before adding it to the potatoes. I would also stir the sauce into the casserole rather than just pouring it over the top. The flavor was very good and I will make it again.
Somewhat bland. I added lots of fresh ground pepper and dill, but it wasn't enough to wow me. I highly suggest extra seasoning. I used a smoky, picante flavored provolone cheese instead of the cheddar for an extra kick, which was great. I also subbed in sweet red and orange peppers for the green bell pepper and doubled the amount of carrots and celery. I will probably make this again, but with extra seasoning. Great for leftover ham after a holiday or once spiral hams are on deep discount following the holidays.
My family loved it. I don't agree that it will serve 8. At least not 8 adults. I think 4-6 is a more accurate number.
I was rushed for time so I used southern style frozen has browns (the chunks, not shredded)and ham already cubed. (It comes vacuum packed in a zip bag) I think next time I might use frozen O'Brian potatoes and that way I won't have to mess with chopping the onions and peppers. I just threw the frozen potatoes in the butter with the ham, onions, and pepper and cooked them until they were thawed and warm. I cooked the carrots and celery in the microwave just a few minutes until they started getting tender. Talk about fast and easy! It was delicious too!
This was very well recieved by the family. I skipped the roux and added 1/3 cup cheese blend powder to the milk and only used enough shredded cheddar to sprinkle a token amount over the top. This helped me keep the fat down but it remained creamy and cheesy.
Wow, very nice! I substituted frozen peas and carrots for the bell pepper. I doubled the amount of potato and doubled the cheese sauce. So glad I did. It needed pepper. I loved the sauce and there was lots of it. Next time I would add more ham and peas/peas and carrots. Definitely comfort food.
This is a great way to use up ham and potatoes and it is wonderfully filling. I agree that if you have a big appetite this will feed about 4-6 adults and stirring the sauce into the potatoes helps get it distributed because it is pretty thick. Next time I will saute all my veggies and only boil the potatoes and some broccoli. The sauce was very cheesy (yum) but next time I will add a little nutmeg and some sour cream and use some parmesan too for a little more depth.
We love this, and make it everytime we have left over ham. Thanks so much for sharing!!
It was a hit but will need to make a larger amount so that 3 adults can have more leftovers. We barely had enough for leftovers due to seconds. I have been looking for ways to use up leftover ham and we now have a winner. It would be easy to substitute any other veggie that might be available in the fridge.
