Just like I love to cook and shred a whole chicken to have handy for casseroles, soups, and quesadillas, I also like to have chopped ham in the freezer. Here’s one of our stand-by dishes for leftover ham. It’s super easy and is thrown together with only one skillet. The first time I made it, my husband commented, “This tastes like something grandma would have made.” A high compliment, indeed!
Layered Ham Skillet
- 2 cups cooked, chopped ham (real ham, not deli meat)
- 1 onion, sliced
- 2 cans green beans
- 3-4 potatoes, scrubbed and thinly sliced
- 1 can cream of mushroom soup (I make my own) + water to thin it
- salt and pepper to taste
Prep a large skillet with non-stick spray. Layer ham, onion, potatoes, and green beans. Sprinkle all with salt and pepper. Pour cream of mushroom soup on top. Simmer on medium-low heat for 30-45 minutes, or until potatoes are tender.
***Add water to the skillet if needed while it cooks. If all the liquid cooks out, you’ll end up with scorched ham. Lesson learned from experience!***
***If you like a saucier dish, add another can of mushroom soup.***
