Broccoli Ham Casserole

We all know that broccoli cheese casserole and sausage hash brown casserole are everyone’s totally favorite fillers, but this broccoli ham casserole is a delicious homemade casserole that is just as good for dinner as it is for breakfast.

Loaded up with diced fresh potatoes, broccoli, bits of ham, and lots of ooey-gooey cheese, this is a keeper of a side dish.

Casseroles make amazing potluck dishes and come ready to serve! Because of the consistency of this broccoli ham casserole, you can scoop it out with a spoon or cut it into simple squares to pre-portion.

Ingredients

  • 4 potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2″ pieces
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 head fresh broccoli, cut into small pieces
  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 1-1/2 cups chopped ham
  • 8 eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • salt and pepper

Can you prep ahead and overnight this broccoli Ham Casserole?

Yes, you can prep this casserole the night before, tightly cover it with foil, and cook it the next day. Anytime you overnight a casserole, the fridge makes the food extra cold.

It’s better to bring the casserole back out to room temperature to take the chill off, or it could take longer to cook. That being said, you could probably just pop it in the oven from the fridge and keep a close eye on it when it’s done. 

Can I use frozen broccoli?

I understand that sometimes frozen food is much easier to deal with! You can use frozen broccoli; just add it and cook it in the skillet per the recipe.

Note that it won’t take you as long to sauté your broccoli and onions over raw broccoli. Typically, 1 head of fresh broccoli florets equals approximately 3–3.5 cups of broccoli.

Where to Buy Ham 

This casserole is great to make after big holidays that serve up ham and can kill the bits of extra you may have left. But what about in the off-holiday season? Ham isn’t exactly on everyone’s menu year-round!

I buy my ham that can be sliced and diced right in the pre-packaged meat aisles. It’s usually either in the meat department’s PORK section or the SANDWICH MEAT section of a store.

Ham & Broccoli Casserole Bake

Preheat the oven to 350 and grease a 2-1/2 quart casserole dish with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.

In a skillet, add potatoes and oil and heat on medium-high, covered for about 10 minutes, making sure you frequently stir until potatoes are cooked. Pour into the prepared casserole dish.

Can you freeze Broccoli Ham Casserole?

I know someone will ask this question. I am not a huge fan of freezing casseroles with dairy in them, as the freezing and unfreezing process can cause dairy to separate and act weirdly.
