You can use a few simple ingredients to make a simple casserole that always receives compliments.
Slice enough potatoes to cover the bottom of a 9 x 13 Pyrex dish.
Chop one onion and sprinkle on top of the potatoes.
Chop up between one and two cups of ham and place on top of onions and potatoes.
Cover all of this with a can of cream of mushroom soup mixed with 1/2 can of milk.
Salt and Pepper to taste.
Place in preheated 400 degree oven and bake for one hour. Make sure dish is covered with a piece of aluminium foil for the first hour.
After potatoes have cooked for an hour and are close to being done, take the aluminum foil off the casserole and top the casserole with grated cheese. I usually just turn off the oven at this point and let the casserole sit in the hot oven for an additional thirty minutes to thicken and to melt the cheese.
This casserole tastes even better the next day and recipe can be adapted for use in a slow cooker.
I have also made the recipe without the ham.
