Swiss Ham Potato Scallop

Print PrintShare with Friends


IMHO this is the best ham casserole ever. The Swiss cheese adds divine flavor. I got this recipe from my school principal's wife. Thanks, Eunice! This is perfect for potlucks or sit-down dinners or as a treat for a sick neighbor. It's a little more work but the flavor makes you glad you made it!
