How To Make Simply Delicious Ham and Potato Casserole

When we say this is a simple dish, it's because we use the simplest of ingredients from the potatoes to the choice of ham. And once it's all ready, we top it off with sharp cheddar cheese.

Prep: 25 mins
Cook: 1 hr
Total: 1 hr 25 mins


  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter
