This is a really good and simple recipe that the kids all enjoyed. If you have any leftovers it is also delicious the next day. I actually doubled the potato soup it called for for a little more flavor. I usually serve this with broccoli (or what we call trees) and a salad.
On another note we call broccoli trees in order to get the kids to eat it. It never fails that the kids ask for us to play "don't eat the trees" whenever I serve broccoli. We started this with m telling them that they are gaints and the broccoli are trees. All the villagers are yelling at the giants not to eat the trees. They love this game and them come up with names for other vegetables on their plates. Now that I have shared this story I will share my recipe for Ham and potato casserole.
