“This easy meal-in-one dish is a real crowd-pleaser on chilly nights," says Nancy Foust of Stoneboro, Pennsylvania. "Because it bakes in two pans, you could freeze one for later, depending on your needs. It’s creamy, and filling and has a wonderful ham-and-cheese flavor.”
“We first had Aunt Dolly’s potpie at a family get-together,” recalls Mary Zinsmeister of Slinger, Wisconsin. “We loved it and were so happy she shared the recipe. Now, we make it almost every time we bake a ham.”
I make this easy meat and veggie bake often because it provides plenty of delicious leftovers for later. My fiance and I love broccoli, so this hearty recipe pleases us both. it would go over big as a featured entree for a brunch buffet.
My family wouldn't eat spinach until I found this recipe. Then it became a dish they frequently requested. It's a meal in itself, adds color to any menu and is well received at a potluck gathering.

I am retired and always looking for fast-to-fix foods to serve when my children or grandchildren stop by. Leftover chicken, ham and a wild rice mix make this comforting dish quick to assemble. If you have extra turkey, you can use it instead of the chicken. Lovetta Breshears

Like many people I know, I've had an overabundance of zucchini in my garden. I created this recipe to use up some of my bounty. My husband often shies away from vegetable dishes, but he declared this one a winner! —Barbara Edgington, Frankfort, Ohio
