My mom used to make this all the time when I was a kid. Velveeta was cheap to use for cheese and she used left over ham from a ham dinner. She always kept canned potatoes in the house for these kind of casseroles. I always enjoyed this dish, and it always brings back such great memories.
We never had a lot of money and ate casseroles quite a bit, lol.
It's become a staple in new England.
