We first had Aunt Dolly’s ham potpie at a family get-together. We loved it and were so happy she shared the recipe. Now we make it almost every time we bake a ham. —Mary Zinsmeister, Slinger, Wisconsin


  • 1 package (4.9 ounces) au gratin potatoes
  • 1-1/2 cups boiling water
  • 2 cups frozen peas and carrots
  • 1-1/2 cups cubed fully cooked ham

  • 1 can (4 ounces) mushroom stems and pieces, drained
  • 1/2 cup 2% milk
  • 1/2 cup sour cream

  • 1 sheet refrigerated pie crust


  1. Preheat oven to 400°. In a large bowl, combine the potatoes, contents of sauce mix and water. Stir in the peas and carrots, ham, soup, mushrooms, milk, sour cream and pimientos. Transfer to an ungreased 2-qt. round baking dish.

Ham Potpie Tips

How can you make ham potpie your own?

If you’ve got an adventurous streak in you, try making a few swaps to make this dish more fitting to your personal taste. If you don’t have ham, cooked chicken, turkey or even leftover pot roast works well. Don’t like peas and carrots? Swap in your favorite veggie mix. You can also use any kind of cream soup; for instance, cream of mushroom soup is a natural go-to instead of cream of chicken. If you have a little more time, try making your own pie crust.

What can you serve with ham potpie?

Since most potpies has pretty much everything you could want, I like to serve a simple side salad with it, just to freshen up your meal a bit. Plus, side salads can be mixed together when the potpie is in the oven.

How should you store leftovers of ham potpie?

Once your ham potpie has fully cooled, cover it and store it in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. To reheat, you can bake it in a 350°F oven until the mixture is hot. You can also microwave it in the dish you baked it in, if it's microwave-safe.
