46 Brilliant Casseroles with Ham

The best casseroles with ham make it easy to use up leftovers from the holidays or make a special comforting classic any time of year.

46 brilliant casseroles with ham

It seems like you always have a pound or two sitting around after special occasions and you can transform it in so many ways that don’t feel like you’re eating the same thing.

Make your ham casseroles freezer friendly

Ham freezes great (learn more about how to freeze it) but I think it’s even better to fold it in to a cheesy sauce or mix in some pasta and have the next meal all ready to go.

Most of these casseroles with ham are going to be freezer friendly. Either after baking (for most of the breakfast casseroles that have eggs) or before baking as with the pasta based recipes.

If you do choose to freeze your casserole, make sure to thaw overnight in the refrigerator then bake covered to keep moisture in. Remove any parchment paper or foil during the last 10 minutes of baking to help the top get golden brown and bubbly.

Breakfast Casseroles with Ham

Ham is a classic breakfast food so it makes sense to see it featured with plenty of eggs, cheese and vegetables as a centerpiece for the morning.
