I’m all about easy when it comes to recipes, but that doesn’t mean everything has to come out of a box. When holidays hit you want homemade, but I don’t want to be slaving over a stove all day….I still want to enjoy myself.

Au Gratin potatoes are a great side dish to ham or even turkey at Easter or Christmas time. Everyone loves cheese and potatoes!

It’s kinda’ like lasagna with the layering. I like to use both mozzarella and sharp cheddar but use whichever you’d prefer or both. Serve on the side of chicken breast, or it’s a great dish to use your leftovers in!

Just dice your leftover ham and layer it with your cheese and bake as usual. I hope you like this holiday side dish and your get together is yummy and fun!
