This crockpot recipe is made with ham, potatoes, onion, cheddar cheese, and condensed soup. It's a very easy preparation. Just slice the potatoes and onions and layer everything in the slow cooker. Mix the soups and milk together and pour over the casserole.
You can make the casserole with sharp cheddar, but mild cheddar or cheddar jack cheese will work as well. You can also use a 1-pound package of diced ham instead of slices or reduce the amount of ham and serve the potatoes as a side dish.
Serve the potatoes with a tossed salad and biscuits or crusty bread.
- 12 to 16 ounces ham (sliced or diced)
- 8 to 10 medium potatoes (peeled and thinly sliced, about 3 to 3 1/2 pounds)
- 1 medium onion (peeled and thinly sliced)
- Dash of kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 1 1/2 cups cheddar cheese (grated and divided)
- 2 (10 3/4-ounce) cans condensed cream of celery or cream of mushroom soup
- 1/2 cup milk
- Paprika (to taste)
Put half of the ham, potatoes, and onions in the crock pot. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, and then add 1 cup of the grated cheese.
Add remaining ham, potatoes, and onions, and sprinkle lightly with more salt and pepper.
In a bowl, combine the two cans of condensed soup with the milk.
Spoon the soup mixture over the potatoes and top with the remaining 1/2 cup or cheese
Sprinkle with paprika.
Cover and cook on LOW for about 8 hours or about 3 1/2 to 4 hours on HIGH, or until the potatoes are tender.
