Ham and Cheese Casserole

According to my calendar, the first day of Spring was back in March. However, this is Ohio; and in Ohio, Mother Nature does as she pleases. One day it feels like Winter, one day it feels like Spring--and sometimes it feels like both in the same day! 

Which Season We're Doing Today - Tinalicious

Since it's felt less than Spring-like for several days, I decided that some comfort food was in order. Something warm to warm my bones, as they say. Awhile back I came up with a recipe that did just that, so I thought it was the perfect dish to make this rather cold-ish week. Behold: I give you...Ham and Cheese Casserole!

Wow is right! What could be better than ham and cheese? Who doesn't love cheese--except my grandson. What can I say? He is a hater of cheese. [But I totes love him anyway.] This casserole has 6 ingredients--6!--and it's super easy to make. You're not going to believe how easy it is to make. I mean seriously...easy...to...make.

But of course...here's what you do. First, get your six ingredients at the store. Don't forget your mask. And the appropriate six-foot distance between you and your fellow shoppers.

  • 1 Package of Frozen Diced Potatoes, 32 oz.
  • 1 Can Campbell's Cheddar Cheese Soup, 10.5 oz.
  • 1 Can Campbell's Cream of Chicken Soup, 10.5 oz.
  • 1 Package Shredded Cheddar Jack Cheese, 2 Cups/8oz.
  • Garlic Salt, to taste
  1. Preheat oven to 375° (oven temps may vary, yours may work at 350°).
  2. Grease a 9x13" casserole dish.
  3. Combine all of the ingredients in a large bowl. Stir well.
  4. Pour into casserole dish and bake for 45 minutes.

Cela pourrait-il être plus facile?

Sorry. My bad. In French that means, 'could that be any easier?' I am one of those cooks that prefers things to be as easy as possible, and that's one of the reasons I love casseroles. Mix stuff up and throw it in the oven, and then it's done, like magic.

The only thing left to do after that is sit back and enjoy, while of course sitting 6 feet away from each of your family members. What more could you possibly wish for during a pandemic?
