Recipe by ckmclements

Lifted off another recipe website (can't remember which one) when I was looking for low-fat recipes to make. It involves many of my favorite things all together in one dish.

Easy to make (even making potatoes from scratch) and tastes great. I used half white potatoes and half yams. Forgot the mustard. Used ricotta cheese instead of cottage, but next time will try 1 C instead of 1/2 C, as it was too pasty and hard to spread evenly. Used shredded cheddar cheese. In the pic there's also something green in there - onions? parsley? Two of my kids gobbled it up. The sweet potato hater would have gobbled it up had I made it exactly to recipe :) Unfortunately, we only have ham once a year at Christmas, so I can make this with those leftovers.

  5. Bake for 30 minutes.
