Here’s a really great casserole, the kids are sure to love. The mixture of ham, onions, cheese, and noodles are so tasty together in this casserole. I also have a holiday ham recipe that’s amazing.

I’m mention the holiday ham, because if you cook a whole or even part of a ham you can use the leftovers in this recipe.

Typically, I buy a pack of deli ham. Just regular old sandwich ham. This might sound gross to some, however, I’m raising three teenage boys, judge me all you want!

Cheap meats is how we roll in this house! If I went out and bought a whole ham, it would be gone 30 seconds after I rang the dinner bell.

Regardless, you can buy a hunk of ham in the deli or in the meat section usually year round, if you aren’t on such a strict budget like me. Just cut it up into cubes and cook the casserole according to my recipe! Either way will work out just fine.

We have a couple of casseroles we like to make around here. I make frittata once or twice a month. Since, we have chickens it helps to have a egg casserole to use them up.

We also like baked macaroni and cheese, green bean casserole, and one of our all-time favorites is Cajun sausage and potatoes!

Once we had a butt load of zucchini. I was given a whole case of it. I couldn’t preserve it because it wasn’t super fresh. It was starting to go bad. So, I made up a couple of zucchini casserole recipes.

The first one was zucchini kale casserole, and the other one is zucchini parmesan. These are both great casseroles, they are easy and delicious!

      Me too. It is kinda my specialty. If you look around at the other recipes on the blog you may notice most of them are quick and easy. I think that is what happens when you are feeding three growing boys. Cook food fast, but it must be good, these are the demands from boys, lol!

      It is pretty kid friendly. Sometime my middle child would gripe about the onions, but if need be those could be left out. You could do onion powder instead. Other than the onions, the boys really love this dish!
