Gwynn E. of Knoxville, Tennessee shares, “My mother was making fried potato patties out of leftover mashed potatoes and accidentally stirred in pancake mix instead of flour. I’ve made mine that way ever since.”
"Mashed Potatoes with Ham evolved from scalloped potatoes, which are tasty but time-consuming to bake.
"I warmed up leftover mashed potatoes, then decided to throw in some ham to save a dish," Kathy explains.
"The next time I made it, I added a cheese and crumb topping to give this casserole an appealing golden look."
Our family loves these creamy and comforting potatoes. Garlic and other herbs make them so mouthwatering, I serve them just plain-no gravy is needed. For an extra-buttery taste, I'd suggest using Yukon Gold potatoes.—Suzi Bonnett, Bellevue, Nebraska
