I had leftover ham from New Years so this is what I threw together one nite......There wasnt a crumb left so it must be good! Feel free to add whatever leftovers you have..
- 6 frozen biscuit dough
- 1 cup tiny peas, thawed
- 1 1⁄2-2 cups ham, cut into 1-inch cubes
- 2 tablespoons margarine
- 1⁄4 cup onion, finely chopped
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 1⁄4 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1⁄4 teaspoon dry mustard
- 1 1⁄2 cups milk
- 1 cup shredded mild cheddar cheese
- 2 cups potatoes, cubed, cooked, drained (frozen Obriens would work too)
- Preheat oven to 375°.
- In a medium saucepan melt margarine.
- Add onion; cook until tender.
- Blend in flour, pepper and dry mustard.
- Add milk all at once.
- Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened.
- Cook and stir 1 minute more.
- Add cheese; stir until melted.
- Stir in potato, ham and peas.
- Spoon mixture into a 10x6-inch baking dish; top with biscuits.
- Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until biscuits are golden brown.
I used real butter, added 1/4 c Swiss cheese (on top of the cup of cheddar), and a leftover leek that was hanging around in the fridge. I also used Bisquik dumplings on top instead of biscuits. This was easy to make and quite delicious! Thanks for posting such a versatile recipe that uses a bunch of leftovers!
Getting ready for vacation, I cleaned out my fridge and freezer with this! Wonderful, we all loved it and really liked the way the biscuits turned out (I defrosted them before adding to the top of the casserole). I didn't use margarine, I used Earth Balance Buttery Sticks from Trader Joe's, used skim milk and low-fat cheddar cheese. I did use the suggested O'brien's and the addition of the peppers and onions from them made a really nice flavor jolt. My husband being on a low-fat diet has made some of our meals kind of boring but this perked dinner-time up quite a bit! Oh, the ham was leftover, spiral-sliced, Costco ham....VERY good!! I WILL make this again...I'm very weary of making scalloped ham and potatoes with leftover ham!! Thanks Laurie, great recipe.
This is absolutely wonderful, comfort food at it's best and so easy to make, I used my own biscuit recipe for this, and left over cooked ham I keep in my freezer, I also added in fresh garlic and Parmesan cheese, my DH will enjoy this for lunch, I will definately make this again, thanks Laurie!...Kitten:)
