This casserole is one of my absolute favorite dishes that I created over the years. It’s made with a creamy cheesy ham and potato filling which is complemented by crunchy, buttery cornflakes. It’s a great recipe for making the most of your leftover Easter ham! We love it and I’m confident that you will too. This is a simple recipe for using up leftover ham. Give it a try and let me know what you think!
