Cheesy Ham Potato Bake

Cheesy Ham Potato Bake


  • 30 ounce package frozen hash brown potatoes, thawed
  • 12 ounce package pre-cooked ham steak, diced
  • 2 cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese, or more to taste
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 10.75 ounce can condensed cream of chicken soup
  • 8 ounce container sour cream
  • ½ cup butter, melted
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9×13-inch baking dish.

Stir hash browns, ham, Cheddar cheese, onion, cream of chicken soup, sour cream, and butter in a large bowl; season with salt and black pepper. Transfer mixture to prepared baking dish and cover with aluminum foil.

Bake until bubbly and cheese is melted, 45 minutes to 1 hour. Remove foil and continue baking until brown, about 15 minutes more.

Cook’s Note: A nice topping for this is some lightly crunched up Ruffles(R) regular potato chips. They add a nice crunch factor to the casserole. I use them as a garnish when I serve it so they do not get mushy!
