Creamy Ham and Potato Casserole

I have been going through some of my old “low-cal” recipes looking for a few different meals to add to our menu plan rotation.  I tried out this Creamy Ham and Potato Casserole last week.  Wow, it was really yummy and a hit with everyone!  This recipe serve 4 and surprisingly clocks in at about 260 calories per serving.

I may have used more than 1/4 cup of the Panko bread crumbs the recipe called for, but the bread crumbs really made it good.  Next time, I might just keep the extra bread crumbs on the kids half to keep the calories down for me…

Creamy Ham and Potato Casserole

  • Author: Jamie Sanders


Homestyle creamy ham and potato casserole.


  • 1 1/4 cup skim milk
  • 3/4 cup evaporated skim milk
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 1/2 tsp each, salt and pepper
  • 4 small potatoes (1 1/4 lbs total) peeled, diced and boiled
  • 6 oz diced ham
  • 1/4 cup corn
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheese, plus 1/8 cup of cheese for top layer
  • 1/4 cup Panko bread crumbs
  • olive oil



  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. If your potatoes aren’t cooked yet, peel and dice them into uniform pieces and boil them in the microwave about 7 to 8 minutes, until soft.  Once potatoes are ready, go ahead and salt and pepper them to taste.
  3. In a sauce pan, combine skim milk, evaporated skim milk, flour, salt and pepper (about 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper.)  Over medium high heat, stir constantly until sauce has thickened.
  4. Place half of the potatoes on the bottom of a well greased 9 inch square baking dish.  Layer half the ham, corn, cheese and onion in the pan, then cover with half the sauce.  Repeat each layer, finishing with the final 1/8 cup of cheese and 1/4 cup of bread crumbs.  Lightly drizzle a little bit of olive oil (about a tablespoon) over the top of the breadcrumbs.
  5.  Bake uncovered for 55 to 60 minutes.  If you find the top getting too brown cover with a little bit of foil and finish cooking.
