Directions

  1. Place potatoes into a large pot and cover with salted water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. Grease a 1 1/2-quart baking dish.
  4. Melt 3 tablespoons butter in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in the ham and onion; cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes.
  5. Stir potatoes into ham mixture; transfer to the prepared baking dish.
  6. Melt 1/4 cup butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir flour into melted butter until smooth.
  7. Gradually whisk milk into flour mixture; season with salt and black pepper. Continue cooking and stirring until thickened, about 2 minutes.
  8. Reduce heat to medium-low and stir Cheddar cheese into the white sauce until melted.
  9. Pour sauce over ham and potatoes.
  10. Sprinkle bread crumbs atop casserole.
  11. Bake in the preheated oven until sauce is bubbly and browned, 25 to 30 minutes.

Made this with Easter ham from a week ago. - Oh what to do with all that left over ham. Made this and was skeptical. My family loved it - and they are very finikey. Yum! Clean plates - everyone loved it! Thank you. Didn't change a thing!

Ultimate decadent comfort food! Too bad I only have leftover ham about twice/year! This recipe is basically the same as my au gratin potato recipe with the exception of adding the ham and cubing instead of slicing the potatoes. Also used a combo of sharp and extra-sharp cheddar cheese. Thanks for sharing!

This was a very tasty and hearty meal!! I was looking for a recipe to use for leftover ham and this one is a keeper! It's quick and easy and my fiance loved it. The only thing I changed was that I added about 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper and some green beans. Thanks for the recipe! *Update* I had this next day and added salt to it and it was PERFECT! I thought the ham would be salty enough and didn't want to oversalt it...I was wrong. Add extra salt!

We tried this last night and I wish I had taken a photo to post bc it looked great. Slight changes just to speed it up. We used 2 cans of canned diced potatoes and a can of peas. It was delicious and very easy. Great way to use leftover ham. Worth a try. Thanks for posting!

I had some ham leftover from Thanksgiving and I made this for dinner tonight. It was very good. Even my husband had seconds on this. I will be making this again when I have lefto over ham.

I made this recipe with adding crushed red pepper as the only tweak. I found that 1/4 cup bread crumbs were quite generous. I added a picture.

A little less potato in this recipe but otherwise very good.
