    Looks great! We have lots of leftover potatoes and since we’re vegetarian I think I’ll add broccoli instead of ham. Thanks for all of your great ideas!

    OMG this looked so good I just had to make it for dinner tonight. The only thing I did differently was instead of the flour I used one can of cream of mushroom soup and 3 soup cans of milk. I tripled the recipe for our family of 9 :) Thanks for sharing.

    This recipe reminded me of my grandma’s ham casserole, only thing I did different was add a chopped green bell pepper and it was amazing. Thanks for sharing!
