This Ham and Potato Casserole is a delicious and very simple dinner!  Ham and potatoes smothered in a homemade cheesy sauce! It makes a big meal and it’s not expensive to make!

The best part is that it’s very versatile…  replace cheddar with swiss, replace ham with chicken…  in this recipe, they will all work beautifully!

Another thing I love about this recipe is that is doesn’t start with “cream of” soup.  I’m not a huge fan of salt so I always use low sodium chicken broth but any type will work just fine!  Be sure to cut your potatoes fairly small (1/2″ x 1/2″) so they cook quickly.  I also like to put my 9×13 on a cookie sheet just in case it drips over.  The sauce will thicken upon standing.
