  1. I was thinking "Gosh, maybe I want this cookbook." I followed the link and thought, "$9.99 is a great price." When I saw shiping was $10.99 I decided to look elsewhere. It still looks like a great book and I can't wait to try this recipe. MMMMMM! All our favorite ingredients.
  2. This is so good! We are a family of 5 but with 3 little ones we hardly make a dent, so I usually package leftovers in aluminum lidded containers and store in the freezer for when a friend needs a meal (post baby, illness, etc). It never takes long.
    I do substitute Greek yogurt for the sour cream for a (little) added nutritional value. I also use 2% cheddar cheese, and light butter (I have even used the spray butter).
    LOVE your site!

    Have this ready to go in my crock pot, but have a question about the stuffing. All I could find post holiday was stove top 6 oz box herb flavored. I am guessing that the bread crums are all that are being used sprinkled on top for the crunch. Can you clarify? PS Love your site. I have made several of your recipes since I discovered it.
    • Hi Kerie, Does your stuffing box come with a seasoning packet? If it does you can add that to your dry bread crumbs for flavoring. If it seems strong just had half of the seasoning packet. Or you can just add the dry bread crumbs in by themselves without the seasoning packet. Hope this answers your question. The seasoning packet will give it some flavor, but you don't want it to overpower the taste. Thanks so much for stopping by our blog and have a terrific day!

    I tried this recipe with left over ham from Easter. My husband and I enjoyed it (my son not so much but he's the pickiest toddler when it comes to potato dishes). Next time I will leave out the salt as the ham was plenty in that department. I left out the bread crumbs and used herbed panko instead, at the end. This is going in my Crock Pot recipe list.

      And in response to another poster that mentioned it's to much for a 4qt. If the stuffing mix were left out it would work just fine. I had no issue with space in my 4qt crock sans the stuff mix, and adding the panko at the end (topped with butter) there was more space than when starting the dish as everything melts and condenses a tad.
    • This recipe will serve around 10 people. Just depends on how large the servings are. We have only used hashbrowns for this recipe. We have not tried using cooked diced potatoes. I'm not sure if adding your own cooked potatoes and then putting them in the slow cooker for an additional 4 to 6 hours would be too much cooking and turn them mushy.

    I was looking for an easy casserole to take to a pot luck dinner with friends. I was going to make Chili, until 1 participant said he doesn't eat it. That is when I came upon this recipe. I can't wait to try it! I love my own Ham & Potato Casserole, but it's much harder & time consuming. This looks so easy!!! BTW What about using frozen potatoes with onions (& peppers) already in them? I would think that would be great as well!!

    I made this for a pot luck dinner, tonight. It was VERY good but I'd have a couple of suggestions: 1. Instead of "dried" onions I used fresh that I chopped small. 2. I added green peppers as well. I sauteed them with the onions, before adding them with everything else. 3. I put bread crumbs on the top instead of the stuffing mix. I used "spray butter" instead of the stick butter. I put the crumbs on top about an hour before it was done cooking. 4. WATCH the timing. My potatoes were not quite done, so I left it on for about 1/2 hour, well that was too long. We basically ate mashed Cheesy Potatoes & Ham. 5. I thought that the salt content was perfect, but I like salt....I would suggest tasting it after the casserole has cooked for a while & then adding the salt to taste! Everyone raved about the dinner! It was great to make this & go! Sooooo easy!! I think that I would use the sauce idea for Mac & Cheese. I liked it that much!!
  7. I was looking forward to this recipe but I was disappointed. I found it to be dry and I didn't care for the stuffing on top. I think it needs a vegetable-maybe peas or broccoli. If I make this again I would prepare the stuffing according to box directions and put it on top of the casserole. Could frozen peas be used withe frozen potatoes? Joyce
