This Ham And Hash Brown Casserole is a potluck lovers dream filled with hearty potatoes and smoked ham. Most recently I made it and took it to my son’s “Thankful Breakfast” at school. I think it’s perfect for breakfast, brunch or serve it as a side dish for any meal. It’s super convenient as it can be prepared in advance, then baked just before serving.
