The casserole, as we know it, is a relatively modern invention. The "original" casserole made its appearance in the early 18th Century, but used rice that was pounded, pressed, and filled with meats or sweet breads. Nowadays, the casserole has had a lot of revolutions and today’s casserole has been, by far, the most delicious, most especially if there’s potato for its main ingredient. A flavorful, time-saving dinner dish for the whole family, this ham and potato casserole is absolutely enticing because of its unique blend of flavors; with its meaty, chunky ham; and its deliciously steamy potatoes, you would surely want to make this your everyday dinner meal.
Serves: 8
  • ½ cup flour
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • 2 teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup butter or margarine - 1 stick
  • 3 cups milk
  • 4 cups ham - chopped
  • 5 cups potatoes - thinly sliced
  • 3 cups cheese - cheddar, shredded
  • 1 onion - chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper - chopped
  1. Mix together flour, pepper, and salt in a large deep bowl (omit salt if you think that the ham and cheese are salty enough).
  2. In a saucepan, melt the butter and add the flour mixture. Cook over medium heat for one minute, stirring constantly to blend the flavors; then remove from heat and stir in milk. Return to heat and simmer until thick enough.
  3. In a very large mixing bowl, stir in the remaining ingredients with the sauce. Place in a tightly-covered casserole dish and bake in 350 degrees F for 90 minutes. Remove the cover after the first 30 minutes.
  4. Let it cool for 15 minutes before serving.
  5. Serve and enjoy!
