This is a very good casserole that I make a lot. Especially when I won't have a lot of time.

- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 1 1⁄2 cups diced ham
- 1 cup shredded American cheese
- 1 (10 1/2 ounce) can cream of mushroom soup
- 1⁄2 cup milk
- 1⁄2 teaspoon thyme
- In 9x13 casserole dish layer 1/2 the potatoes, onion, ham, and cheese.
- Repeat layers.
- Mix soup, milk, and thyme.
- Pour over top. Cover with foil.
- Bake at 370* for 1 hour 15 minutes or until potatoes are done.
This is incredibly delicious and TOTAL comfort food. The recipe is very easy to make, I used red potatoes and sliced them VERY thin, but still had to add an additional 30 minutes for this to be cooked properly. The only thing that did was to drive me crazy waiting to get to them because the smell coming from my oven was heavenly. Thanks Inez for the great dish!
I actually made this without the ham for a side dish. I sometimes make scalloped potatoes using 1-2 cans cream of chicken soup and a little milk, but I pre-cook the potatoes & onions in a large frying pan in about 2 cups of water first for about 10 minutes first before layering in my casserole, then they only need about 30-45 mins. in the oven. I did not do that this time as I just didn't feel like dirtying another large dish, so I cooked these according to the recipe,except I covered with foil and removed for the last 1/2 hr. which I thought was probably good as they browned and crisped up a fair bit after this so I wonder if they would have been too browned on top for my liking without the foil for the entire time. I cooked for the time stated and once I served them up, the odd one throughout that was cut a little thicker, could have used an extra few minutes, but I certainly did not have any major problems with these not being cooked well. I really enjoyed the addition of the thyme as I like the flavour of it.I sprinkled a little extra on top along with a little parsley for colour. We enjoyed as a side dish and I would like to try again with the ham,I bet the flavours complement well!
Great comfort food!! I was looking for something easy to throw together and this fit the bill. I used a honey ham steak, cubed, half of an onion, chopped, a 20 oz. pkg. of refrigerated home fries, (sliced potatoes), and shredded cheddar cheese. I really didn't measure any of this stuff, just layered it into an 8x8 casserole dish and poured the soup/milk/thyme mixture (I did measure the milk and thyme) over it. I baked it for the required time, and it came out perfect! Served it with steamed buttered baby carrots and hot rolls. This is so good I'll be taking the leftovers to work for lunch tomorrow! Thanks for an easy-peasy delicious recipe, Nezz!
