Cheesy Ham, Potato, and Broccoli Casserole

Cheesy Ham and Potato Casserole

Delicate swags of broccoli buds. Tender-crisp morsels of gently braised potato. All swathed in a cheesy cream sauce perfumed with the salty smoke of thick-cut ham.

OK, who am I kidding? It’s just a casserole. But still, it broke my heart.

Casserole Ingredients

This morning I scraped spoonful after lovely, heaping spoonful of my hearty casserole into the garbage.

I made this recipe on Saturday afternoon for a week’s worth of lunches. Luckily I sent a couple servings home with Handsome Greg on date night, and I had a serving myself on Sunday, because the rest of it was spoiled when my refrigerator broke down Sunday night.

I called maintenance as soon as I realized my fridge wasn’t properly fridging. The ham put up a valiant fight, but it was too late to save the noble hotdish. I was left with a fridge full of rotten food, and nothing to eat. So much for saving money. Jimmy Johns for dinner. *sigh*

    So sorry! We’ve only had that happen once (Thank God!) and we’d been on vacation so there wasn’t a lot of food in the fridge. We only had to toss out condiments and some spoiled dairy. I don’t know what we’d do now with 3 fridges to worry about!

    The casserole looks so good. I’ve done scalloped potatoes with ham, but never thought to make it a real one dish supper with a veggie added. I’ll be putting this one in my recipe folder for sure!

    Newly following from What’s Cooking Wednesday! Thanks so much for sharing. I hope they’ve got it all fixed up now!

    What a shame! I’d be sad over this loss too. On the other hand, your stairway to hamven is awesome.

    Looks fabulous, bummer about your fridge though! I will have to grab some ham to go with all the broccoli I am getting in my CSA box.

    Did you just feel like crying? I hate it when those things happen, I sure hope your fridge is working again. This is a great casserole that we will really enjoy. Hope you have a great week end and thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday.
    Come Back Soon!

      Actually, yes. I did feel like crying. Fridge is working again, and the rental office is going to reimburse me for part of the lost food. But it still pained me to throw it all away!
