In this recipe, diced potatoes are baked in casserole with ham, cheese, and a seasoned white sauce, along with a buttery bread crumb topping. 


  • 4 cups diced potatoes
  • 2 cups chopped green onions
  • 5 tablespoons butter
  • 5 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 cups milk
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon prepared yellow mustard
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 2 tablespoons chopped pimiento
  • 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 2 cups diced cooked ham
  • 1/2 cup plain soft bread crumbs
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons butter, cut in small pieces


In a saucepan cook potatoes and onions together in lightly salted water until tender, 12 to 15 minutes. Drain.

To make white sauce melt 5 tablespoons butter in a medium saucepan. Add flour, stirring until blended. Cook, stirring, and gradually stir in milk. Add Worcestershire sauce, mustard, salt, pepper, paprika and pimiento. Cook, stirring, until thick. Place half of the cooked potatoes and onions in a large buttered 3-quart baking dish. Cover potatoes with half of the cheese. Spread all the ham on the cheese. Cover with remaining potatoes.

Pour the cooked seasoned white sauce over all. Sprinkle remaining cheese over top. Sprinkle with bread crumbs then dot with butter. Bake in preheated 350° oven until cheese is melted, about 10 to 15 minutes.

Serves 6 to 8.

So good, Member tmac4780

I made this for my husband and I tonight and was a little leary the entire time I cooked it. The only thing I changed was that I added Lipton onion soup mix to the milk and I baked it about 45 mins instead of just 10 to 15. IT. WAS. AMAZING. My husband couldn't be happier right now. Delicious.
