A longtime favorite for potluck dinners is transformed from a side dish to a main course with the addition of cubed ham. This one is always one of the first to go. In fact, people at the end of the line are disappointed if the pan is empty. —Diane Wilson Wing, Salt Lake City, Utah
This family-favorite casserole is perfect for all occasions. But it's especially nice for an Easter brunch—the ham, hard-cooked eggs and asparagus in it are so much a part of that special day. Cinnamon-flavored yeast bread makes a tasty accompaniment for this easy casserole, as do rolls.
I first made this filling casserole for a camping trip with friends, adding potatoes and soup to stretch the recipe. It was a big hit. It's a great all-in-one meal that's sure to please your hungry eaters all year-round.
A true comfort food that's impossible to resist, this main dish is hearty and saucy with flavors that blend so nicely together. Many shepherd's pie recipes call for beef, so this pork version is a tasty change of pace.

This recipe has traveled to many parts of the country. That's because I've served it to guests from Washington to New Hampshire, and they always ask for the recipe before I leave! My grown children all have a copy, too-it never fails to get rave reviews.
