Mother's Ham Casserole

"TOH recipe submitted by Linda Childers, Tennessee. If you need to use up some leftover ham, this casserole will not dissapoint you. It is really nice comfort food. I have added the Parmesan Cheese to the topping and sometimes I like to use a combination of Swiss Cheese and Cheddar in the casserole."

    Ham is a challenge in my family at the best of times... this is an average of the ratings the family gave it... however my daughter and son (10 and 13) gave it a 8/10 and 9/10 respectively...I'm trying to eat clean so the butter in this made me feel guilty and my hubby is a little picky.


<p>I have two teenage children and am very happily married. We live in Southern, Ontario.&nbsp; <br /><br />I live to cook and just love to putter around the kitchen. I enjoy reading all kinds of cookbooks which I borrow from the library or buy second hand. I really like Taste of Home magazine, because the recipes are from ordinary people and aren't too complicated. I also like to read community or church cookbooks because you know that the recipe must be special for someone to share it. <br /><br />I discovered RecipeZaar because it was mentioned by someone in a cooking I am hooked. I think it is so helpful to read the reviews and suggestions from others who have tried recipes before me. <br /><br />I always thought of myself as a pretty good cook, but I am learning so much since I have joined RecipeZaar. I really appreciate the ideas and feed back that everyone provides.</p> 114172283"
