Mother’s Ham Casserole

“One of my mother’s favourite dishes, this ham casserole recipe always brings back fond memories of her when I prepare it. It’s a terrific use of leftover ham from a holiday dinner. Our five grandchildren are my favourite interest outside the kitchen!” —Linda Childers, Murfreesboro, Tennessee
