Ham and Potatoes Casserole – Recipe


  • 3 cups cooked ham, sliced  (see tip below)
  • 3 medium potatoes, cooked and sliced  (see tip below)
  • 2 medium dill pickles, sliced to medalions
  • 2 medium onions, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 3 Tbs. butter
  • 2 Tbs. all purpose flour
  • 1 ½ cup consommé (I made mine out of a bouillon and warm water)
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 1 Tbs. Worcestershire Sauce (I use Reduced Sodium)
  • 4 drops Tabasco Pepper Sauce
  • ½ tsp Black Pepper
  • 1 ½ cups Sharp Cheddar cheese, grated


  1. Arrange the ham on the bottom of a casserole dish.
  2. Layer the sliced potatoes on top of the ham.
  3. Scatter sliced pickles over the potatoes.
  4. Sprinkle the onions on top of the pickles.
  5. Sprinkle the chopped garlic over the top.
  6. Melt butter in the sauce pan, add flour, and sauté for 1 minute, stirring often to prevent browning.
  7. Add consommé to the flour mixture, and incorporate to a smooth paste.
  8. Mix in Worcestershire Sauce, Tabasco Pepper Sauce, and Black Pepper.
  9. Cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring frequently.
  10. Temper the sour cream, by adding a little bit of the hot mixture into it and mixing it well.
  11. Add sour cream to the sauce and incorporate it well into it, so it is smooth. Do not boil.
  12. Pour sauce over the top of the casserole.
  13. Sprinkle with Cheddar Cheese.
  14. Bake uncovered, in a preheated oven, at 350° for 30 minutes.


My aunt sometimes would add 2 tsp of  horseradish instead of the Worcestershire Sauce, and sometimes use1 cup of her leftover kobasie in addition to the 2 cups of leftover ham, plus leftover mashed potatoes, instead of cooking and slicing new ones.  I personally do not care for the mashed potatoes, since it makes the casserole kind of mushy.
