Not sure where I got this one, but it's really good. Great and quick way to fix a meal with stuff you probably already have on hand. I have also added kernel corn and French fried onions to this for a little more flavor.
- 1 (5 ounce) package scalloped potatoes mix, you will use sauce packet
- 2 cups boiling water
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 3⁄4 cup milk
- 2 cups cubed cooked ham
- 1 (10 ounce) package frozen cut green beans
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- In an ungreased 1 1/2 quart baking dish, combine potatoes with sauce mix, boiling water, and butter.
- Stir in ham, milk and green beans.
- Bake uncovered at 400° for 35 minutes or until potatoes are tender, stirring occasionally.
- Sprinkle with cheese.
- Bake 5 minutes longer or until cheese is melted.
- Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
This was pretty good. I bought au gratin potatoes by mistake, but went ahead and used them anyways. I subbed in corn for the beans. After getting the dish put together, I froze it before baking. It took about 24 hours to thaw, then I cooked it for 45 minutes. Worked great. Only complaint I have is that using a mix as a base tends for a salty end product.
We made this with leftover Christmas ham. I doubled the recipe, but was worried about the amount of liquids, which I cut back on. It took about 15 minutes longer to cook, maybe because of being doubled. I did not add the cheese as we were having another dish with cheese for the same meal. Everyone here liked it, and the leftovers were gobbled up.
Quick, easy, and tasty... both my husband and my two year-old daughter had seconds. I used peas instead of green beans, and my potatoes were julianne cut instead of regular scalloped, but, the overall idea was the same. I'll be making this again- thanks for sharing the recipe!
