Altered from a recipe I found at It is important to leave the peel on the potato in order to get all the yummy nutrients found there!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place potatoes in 2-quart saucepan; add enough water just to cover potatoes. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat to medium-low; cook uncovered 8 to 10 minutes or until tender. Drain.
  2. Heat oven to 350°F In 10-inch nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add bell pepper and onion; cook 3 to 4 minutes, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are tender.
  3. Meanwhile, in small bowl, mix milk and flour with wire whisk until well blended. Stir into vegetables in skillet. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat; cook uncovered 2 to 3 minutes, stirring constantly, until thickened. Stir in mayonnaise, pepper and cheese; stir until cheese is melted.
  4. Place ham and potatoes in ungreased 2-quart casserole. Pour milk mixture over ham mixture; stir to mix. Bake uncovered 25 to 30 minutes or until bubbly and light golden brown on top.

What a great way to use up left-over ham Sarah. This came together relatively fast after the potatoes were once cookied. The flavor combination here is wonderful and such great comfort food all around. The only thing I did differently was used plain non-fat yogurt in place of the FF mayo. (didn't have any). I also opted out of the green pepper per families request. This is a great go-to recipe for the fall months as it can be done ahead and reheated for later.:-) Made for HolidayTag.

We loved this! I followed the other's advice and used full fat, plain Greek yogurt in place of mayo. It was super flavorful and very cheesy. It will definitely be our go-to recipe for leftover ham!

We really loved this!! The creaminess of the sauce and the red potatoes vs. russets was very tasty! Made pretty much as is; left out the green peppers and used red'creamer' potatoes that I cut in quarters. Will definately make this again!! Made for Everyday is a Holiday Tag February 2010.
