grandma’s creamy ham & cheese pasta casserole

So I was thinking comfort food for dinner last night. But, what to make? I wasn’t really in the mood for chicken, hamburger, or tuna. And then I remembered my favorite ham & cheese casserole. I usually make this after Easter or Christmas when I have a bunch of leftover ham on hand, but there’s…

ham & cheese stacker

Just like my pork roast stacker, turkey stacker, and diner meatloaf stacker, this isn’t really a recipe. It’s more of a method for enjoying holiday leftovers.

pork roast stacker

We love making leftovers into stackers! A stacker is pretty much just a hot, open faced sandwich topped with mashed potatoes. Sometimes we add a drizzle of gravy, sometimes a sprinkle of cheese, and other times just a pat of butter with salt and pepper. Some of the other stackers my readers have enjoyed are:…
