  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Place potatoes, celery, and carrot in a large pot and cover with water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain and transfer to a 2-quart baking dish.
  3. Melt 3 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium heat; cook and stir ham, green bell pepper, and onion until vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes. Transfer ham mixture to baking dish and mix with potatoes.
  4. Melt remaining 1/4 cup butter in a clean skillet; cook and stir flour in melted butter until smooth, about 3 minutes. Gradually stir in milk and season with salt and black pepper. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly, until thickened, about 2 minutes. Add Cheddar cheese; stir until melted. Pour cheese mixture over ham and potatoes. Sprinkle with bread crumbs.
  5. Bake in preheated oven until bubbly, 25 to 30 minutes. Allow casserole to rest for 5 to 10 minutes before serving.

My family loved it. I don't agree that it will serve 8. At least not 8 adults. I think 4-6 is a more accurate number. I was rushed for time so I used southern style frozen has browns (the chunks...

I did not like the sauce. It was bland and pasty. I think 3 Tbsp of flour may have been too much flour. The sauce needs to be cheesy and instead it was too thick and very bland. My husband and I...

This was very good. The only changes I will make the next time will be to be sure and drain the ham/onion mixture before adding it to the potatoes. I would also stir the sauce into the cassero...

This was very well recieved by the family. I skipped the roux and added 1/3 cup cheese blend powder to the milk and only used enough shredded cheddar to sprinkle a token amount over the top. Thi...

This is a great way to use up ham and potatoes and it is wonderfully filling. I agree that if you have a big appetite this will feed about 4-6 adults and stirring the sauce into the potatoes hel...

I made this tonight and followed the recipe except for the green pepper (I do not like cooked green pepper!) and it was a family hit! We sat around the table talking about the next time I make ...

Wow, very nice! I substituted frozen peas and carrots for the bell pepper. I doubled the amount of potato and doubled the cheese sauce. So glad I did. It needed pepper. I loved the sauce an...

Made this tonight for dinner and it was delicious. I did make some changes though. I doubled the cheese sauce (used half cheddar and half Swiss) and potatoes and only used one fresh carrot. I al...

My whole family loved this. Three small russet potatoes and a 12 oz ham steak were perfect. I almost left out the green pepper, but I'm glad I didn't. I also made 1 1/2 times the sauce so the...

It was a hit but will need to make a larger amount so that 3 adults can have more leftovers. We barely had enough for leftovers due to seconds. I have been looking for ways to use up leftover ha...
