No one will be able to resist the classic trio of ham, Swiss and potatoes in this comforting bake. It was the result of creative experimentation when I wanted to use up ingredients I had on hand. I sometimes replace the ham with turkey ham. —Sarah Wilham, Elkhart, Illinois

"Super easy and oh so tasty. Basic little recipe that packs quite a bit of taste. Perfect for left overs. Can be made up early in the day. Just add the topping before baking. I added some Green Peas to mine simply because I had it. I too could not find the red pepper Alfredo sauce but I will say that the garlic version was perfect.

No ham. No Problem use chicken and add ins would be welcomed.

"As soon as I saw this recipe I knew I had to try it! I could not find the roasted red pepper Alfredo sauce so I used regular Alfredo sauce. I also used dried parsley flakes and dried chives in place of the basil and dill and added about 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard to the sauce. Finally, I doubled the crumbs and used plain breadcrumbs instead of Italian and I cut the potatoes in thick slices because I like things to be chunky. The end result was a hearty and creamy casserole that my family loved! I think next time I make it I may add peas, asparagus or spinach to the casserole and maybe use cream of mushroom soup instead of Alfredo sauce and cheddar cheese instead of Swiss. This recipe gets 5 stars for sure! - Volunteer Field Editor"

"Delicious! Definitely makes a full 13x9, but I elected not to downsize even though there are only the two of us. My husband LOVED this, requested it for his work lunch a second day in a row! The only change I made was the cheese - I do love Swiss, but really love Ham and Cheddar. I used Five State Cheddar and Smoky Bacon White Cheddar. Leftovers for breakfast with eggs to order? Yes, please! Definitely one for the recipe box!! ~Volunteer Field Editor"

"My family adored this casserole last night! SO easy. My 14 year old niece wanted to learn to make casseroles and this was the one she picked for her first attempt. Our guys were actually sad there were no leftovers! Absolute winner!"

"This was easy to make and love that you can make it beforehand for a busy weeknight dinner. The whole family loved it. I too couldn't find the roasted pepper alfredo so used low fat regular. I also mashed my potatoes when I put them in the pan a little, only because of my picky kids. This has great flavor and is definitely a keeper! Thanks for sharing!"

"My changes were using a Homestyle Alfredo sauce (15-oz. jar) and 6-oz. package Swiss cheese, shredded. I could not find the roasted red pepper Alfredo sauce. This recipe was delicious! "Volunteer Field Editor""
