After a large Christmas meal we are all left with a refrigerator full of leftovers. This Ham and Hashbrown Casserole recipe makes great use of some of that leftover Christmas Ham.
Ham and Hashbrown Casserole
2 lbs. frozen hash browns, thawed
3/4 c. butter or margarine, melted
1/2 tsp. pepper
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 (8 oz.) carton sour cream with chives
1 dollop regular sour cream
1-1/2 to 2 c. shredded cheddar cheese **
1-1/2 c. cubed ham
Grease 9×13 pan and place hash browns on the bottom of the pan.
Melt margarine, then mix together with pepper, soup, sour cream and cheese. Add ham and pour over potatoes. Top with crushed Corn Flakes.
Bake at 350 degrees, covered for 45 minutes. Uncover the casserole and bake for an additional 15 minutes.
NOTE: can use 1-1/2 c. shredded cheddar cheese and then slice Velveeta on top to make it creamier.

With the kids getting more and more involved with school and extra curricular activities, I am always looking for quick fix meals I can prepare for supper before games and meetings in the evening. This recipe for sloppy joes is one that the kids love, and the leftovers are great for later on in the week.
