Ham ‘n’ Tater Bake

Get ready for a gourmet loaded baked potato in casserole form. This is so good, I can’t resist making it several times a month. And, it’s a quick and easy dish for company, too. My sister gave me the recipe, and I’m always happy to pass it along. —Peggy Grieme, Pinehurst, North Carolina

    Sorry but we didn't like this although using the suggestion to lighten the sodium content. Often wonder why so many TOH reviews can have a 4.5 rating since people have such varied tastes.

    This recipe was deserves 10 stars!!!!. I had intended to make it with ham and broccoli but saw I had no broccoli. I did have fresh asparagus and a can of cream of asparagus soup so I used it. I put French fried onions on the top and left off the cheese. I partially cooked the asparagus and used shredded hash browns. I know!!! How can this be a true review when nearly everything was changed? I hate when that happens! The point is this recipe is a very versatile recipe and the base ingredients let one change up the veggies and you could even change the protein. This recipe was put in my kitchen journal and will be the base for all my potato casseroles in the future.

    Used this as a base, made a some changes: used a 19oz pkg of frozen sweet potato fries, 4c fresh chopped broccoli (microwaved before adding to baking dish), added a medium onion and a couple cloves minced garlic (sauteed then added with the broccoli), 98% fat free broccoli cheddar soup, and subbed low fat sour cream instead of the mayo. Was quite tasty! Yes, the fries are not crispy--more like mashed potatoes, but that's what I was expecting being baked with all the toppings on them.

    This is very good and easy to make. I did use the broccoli cheese soup and sour cream like one of the reviews suggested. The only thing I would suggest is to maybe bake it at 375 because it wasn't hot when it came out, just warm.

    I have no idea why anyone would say this doesn't have flavor. It was delicious and was eaten by every member of the family and enjoyed. The only changes I made was to add a little sour cream and shredded cheese and a little melted velveeta to the sauce after reading reviews to use a cheese soup. The broccoli soup was great with a little cheese added in. Husband gave it a 7 out of 10. I also split this recipe into 2 -9x9s and put one in the freezer. There was plenty for our family of 5 in a half batch. Thanks for a great and easy recipe. Will be using this one for my freezer cooking too!

    This is a great recipe! I left out the broccoli and used cheddar cheese soup instead of cream of broccoli. Came out creamy and delicious! This recipe is also great reheated.This recipe is a keeper and will definitely make again.

    It was all right but not enough flavor...not even sure how I would modify it to improve it. Won't be making again.

    This turned out disgusting and complete mush, it is the worst recipe I have ever tried from this site. I tried it because it looked good and had a high rating. I wanted to share my feedback to save someone else from a disasterous meal. On top of all that, it gave us a bad stomach ache, I think from the sulfites in the cubed ham.
