This is an adaptation of a recipe my daughter sent me in 2006.  I changed it to make a smaller casserole and to use convenience foods like dried onions, pimientos and garlic in a jar so the meal could be put together quickly.  It makes  a very tasty and filling plateful of food.   Really good with leftover baked ham.


  • 16 oz. frozen hash browns, thawed
  • 1 cup cooked ham, chopped
  • 2 Tblsp. minced dried onions
  • 1 Tblsp. chopped pimiento
  • 1 tsp. minced garlic
  • 4 oz. cream cheese, cubed
  • ¾ cup milk
  • 1 Tblsp. spicy brown mustard

In a 9-inch casserole dish, combine hash browns, ham, dried onions, pimiento and garlic.


In a two-cup measure place cream cheese cubes, milk and mustard.  Microwave on high for two minutes until cheese is softened.  Whisk until smooth.


Pour sauce over ingredients in casserole and mix together.

Cover and bake @ 350 degrees F for 45 minutes.  Remove cover for the last 10 minutes to allow the top to brown.

I served some fresh cherry tomatoes with mine.  4-6 servings


Note:  Dish can be made ahead and refrigerated.  Bake for one hour @ 350 degrees F.
