This is a wonderful recipe. Comfort food at its finest! A beautiful blend of ham, potatoes, cheese, corn... what's not to love! Sometimes I add about 1/4 c. of shredded cheddar to the white sauce at the very end. A favorite in our family from the very youngest to the oldest. Recipe from my buddy and partner in cooking adventures, Russ.
