What’s for Dinner?

Ham and Cheese Potatoes

tohe sale 008

Everyone in my family likes it when I make this for dinner. I like to buy the Ham Steaks you can get at Costco for this. They come 3 steaks to a package and unless I am feeding the neighbor’s kids or the First Year College Student is home, I can usually get away with 1 Ham Steak per meal but sometimes I make two so that I can use the leftovers in a quiche or a Jambalaya the next day. This is a simple dinner and easy. I like to grill the Ham steaks outside on the BBQ if the weather is nice. I steam the green beans in a little bit of olive oil and garlic and then comes the potatoes. The potatoes are what makes everyone’s eyes light up. These are so good and so easy. They are great served with dinner and they are also perfect if you are serving a big breakfast. Do your see that golden brown crunchy piece in the potatoes? That is my favorite part!

Cheddar Cheese Potatoes

1 package (32oz) frozen Southern Style Hash Brown Potatoes (I like Ore-Ida brand), thawed

1 Cup milk

1/4 cup (half a stick) of butter, melted

1 teaspoon of dried Onion Powder (sometimes I add more):)

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp pepper

1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar Cheese

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a small bow, combine the potatoes, milk, Cheddar Cheese, onion powder, salt and pepper. Mix together and spread in a 13 x 9 casserole dish that has been sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray. Drizzle the melted butter over the top. Bake 1 hour until bubbly and golden brown.

That looks soooo good! I love potatoes and I love cheese so I could eat this on its own and be happy. I'll have to look for these ham steaks, that package of 3 would work for me, too.

Karen said...

RNSANE said...

I should never look at these blogs when I am starving and there is no food in the house. I am HUNGRY. Your dinner looks absolutely wonderful!

Lisa@Pickles and Cheese said...

Thanks Karen...I corrected it...Add the cheese when you are mixing the potatoes with all the other ingredients. Then add the butter last.

Karen said...

GOOD recipe. I used (accidentally) "southwestern" style, so it was a little more spicy, but VERY good! :) Thanks!

Karine said...
