Mother's Ham Casserole Recipe

One of my mother's favorite dishes, this recipe always brings back fond memories of her when I prepare it. It's a terrific use of leftover ham from a holiday dinner. Our five grandchildren are my favorite interest outside the kitchen!

MY REVIEW

I liked it. I added some left over peas that I had. I actually liked it better the next day.

MY REVIEW

Nothing special, and I wish it had had a casserole dish size, because I grabbed the wrong casserole dish trying to make it a 9x13, too big a pan. Just really nothing special, and I don't even know if I want a lunch this week. Done with this recipe now, and I don't have to make it again if I don't want to. I don't plan to, too much work for not enough pay off.

This was great. Fixed as recipe, except micro'd the veggies instead of boiling. Next time, I'll try cutting down on the butter. Hope it won't change the taste too much.

Husband that does not like scalloped potatoes and ham, LOVED this dish.

I did use sharp cheddar cheese, onion powder and left out the celery. It was terrific with fresh biscuits.
