This classic, cheesy potato bake becomes a crowd pleasing main dish when you stir in ham and roasted red peppers.
The potato slices give the dish a texture that is firmer than the diced or mashed potatoes. I use a box mix more often that not. But for a holiday gathering I boil my potatoes and slice them.
I am always reminded of my mom when served with a green veggie. I never liked this casserole as a kid. Maybe I was being obstinate. In those days I didn’t much like anything but peanut butter and jelly.
It took me a long time to enjoy new recipes. I guess trying to impress my husband finally paid off!
