This dish is egg noodles tossed in a creamy and cheesy sour cream sauce, ooey-gooey melty cheese, and sweet-salty ham bits.
4. Leftover Ham and Cheese Broccoli Casserole
Rotini noodles are tossed in a creamy sauce and mixed with ham, broccoli, and cheese.
As if that wasn’t delicious enough, a mixture of breadcrumbs and parmesan covers the surface, creating a crunchy and nutty outer crust.
It’s so tasty that the kids won’t mind the broccoli. It’s a perfect way to sneak vegetables into their diets.
5. Baked Ham Penne Pasta
This is a simple penne pasta tossed with diced ham and a creamy sauce.
But because it’s baked in the oven, it gets a deeper flavor and much better textures.
The shredded cheese that goes on top of the casserole melts and dries up a bit when baked, resulting in a crispy crust that’s ooey-gooey within.
6. Ham and Broccoli Pasta Bake
Ham and broccoli once again join forces to make a pasta bake so good, it’ll disappear in a flash.
Think macaroni and cheese, but leveled up with ham, broccoli, and a crunchy crust made of crushed Ritz crackers and cheese.
Pro-tip: there’s no need to stick to elbow macaroni, here.
Any small or medium-shelled pasta will do. I personally like to use conchiglie, a conch-shaped pasta.
I love how the creamy sauce adheres to the shells’ every nook and cranny.
7. Creamy Ham Casserole
This ham casserole is loaded with al dente pasta, salty ham, crunchy broccoli and carrots, bathed in an outrageously rich and creamy sauce.
The sauce is so decadent and the ham is so succulent, you can put as many vegetables as you like and the kids won’t even mind.
Pro-tip: make different variations by using other cream cheese flavors in the sauce.
8. Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole
If you’re a sucker for chicken cordon bleu, I’m pretty sure your mind will explode at this chicken cordon bleu casserole.
It’s basically everything you love in chicken cordon bleu. It has a crunchy crust, juicy chicken, sweet ham, and melted cheese.
But it takes the shape of a casserole.
The great thing about it is that it’s a lot easier to whip up. One recipe makes a huge batch!
9. Ham and Shrimp Jambalaya
This ham and shrimp jambalaya only takes 40 minutes to make.
But it’s so ridiculously flavorful that it tastes like it spent at least 5 hours marinating.
In this jambalaya, the rice is cooked in chicken broth and stewed tomatoes, and flavored with onions, garlic, thyme, cayenne, and bay leaf.
While it’s already scrumptious on its own, the addition of ham and shrimp elevates the dish.
10. Ham and Cheese Breakfast Casserole
You know it’ll be a good day if you start it with this ham and cheese breakfast casserole. Any day with ham and cheese in it is a happy day!
Made with fluffy eggs packed with potatoes, ham, and lots of cheese, this casserole is as hearty as it is palatable.
Also, when I say lots of cheese, I mean serious business. I’m talking shredded mozzarella, cheddar, and parmesan.
When baked, these three turn into a stringy and melty mix of sharp, salty, and nutty perfection.
11. Western Ham and Egg Casserole
A classic Western omelet contains ham, onion, and bell peppers. This casserole has them all, and then some.
It’s also loaded with cheese, tomatoes, mushrooms, cubed bread, and eggs. This casserole is like an omelet and a savory pudding rolled into one.
12. Macaroni and Cheese Ham Casserole
You had me at mac and cheese.

This casserole is creamy, cheesy, and meaty. It’s everything you can ask for in classic comfort food.
13. Twice-Baked Potato Casserole With Ham
Ham and mashed potatoes are two comfort foods that unite to make one phenomenal dish!
Plus, this casserole has both mashed and cubed potatoes in it.
If you’re a fan of potatoes, this is definitely a must-try.
Combined with the ham, cheese, sour cream, and heavy cream, they transform into a decadent delight.
14. Ham Tetrazzini
Chicken tetrazzini is a classic American recipe where pasta is tossed in a creamy and cheesy sauce together with chicken and mushrooms.
This tetrazzini is just like that, but instead of chicken, you use ham.
Just imagine pasta, cream, cheese, and ham all together in one bite. If that doesn’t make your mouth water, what will?
15. Keto Ham Casserole
This is just like carbonara, but without the carbs! This is what makes this next casserole the perfect keto dish.
A mix of zucchini noodles, cream sauce, ham, and peas, this casserole is just as scrumptious as any pasta dish, but it’s lighter and not sinful.
16. Carbonara Pasta Bake
If you’re looking for the ultimate indulgence, you’re staring at it right in the face.
This carbonara pasta bake is loaded with richness and decadence.
The hearty noodles, creamy sauce, salty ham, and boatloads of cheese make it irresistible.
17. Ham and Asparagus Casserole
No kid would say yes to asparagus on its own. But if you mix it into this casserole, they’ll even beg for seconds.
It has rich stuffing at its base, so you already know it’s terrific. The stuffing is loaded with cubed ham, Swiss cheese, and yes, fresh asparagus.
