I am so excited to have Liz and Doug here with a guest post (you might remember Liz from Hoosier Homemade, as she has done some fun cupcake posts for me in the past!)

Happy Monday She Saved fans! Liz and Doug here from Pocket Change Gourmet! We are excited to be sharing Budget Friendly Recipes with you, here on She Saved!

Did you all enjoy your Easter? Do you have lots of leftovers like we do?

If you are anything like me, we sometimes get stuck in a leftover rut. This Ham and Potato Casserole is a new twist on the classic Ham and Scalloped Potatoes. It goes together really quickly and can even be made ahead of time, covered and stored in the refrigerator or even frozen for an easy dinner when time is short.

The holidays are some of my favorite times of the year. Not only because of getting together with friends and family, but also the food that comes along with it. It’s also a great opportunity to stock up on seasonally priced meat. Ham and turkey are always a good choice and can generally be found at greatly reduced prices before and after the holidays.

Casserole’s are terrific budget and time savers, offering the best of both makes them a staple in many recipe boxes. We have enjoyed this casserole for breakfast, a large brunch, dinner and even as a hearty lunch.

Ham and Potato Casserole

Ingredients

  • 2 cups diced ham
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 6 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 4 cups bag frozen hash browns, shredded and thawed – we bought a 30 oz bag and used about 2/3 of the bag
  • 3 1/2 cups shredded cheese blend
  • 1 1/2 cups {12 oz} Cottage Cheese

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Saute onion in a little butter on the stovetop
  3. In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients
  4. Transfer to a 13×9 baking dish
  5. Bake uncovered for 40-60 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean {this is a wide range of time, every oven cooks differently, keep an eye on it}

This recipe is a great way to use up some leftover Easter Ham, but you can certainly use sausage or bacon. It will serve about 6 people, depending on how large the servings are and the other dishes you serve along side.
