Nutrition Profile:


  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour

  • 4 cups whole milk, divided

  • 1 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese

  • 1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

  • ½ teaspoon ground pepper

  • 2 (20 ounce) packages refrigerated shredded hash browns or 10 cups shredded peeled potatoes

  • 3 cups frozen peas, thawed

  • 1 ¾ cups cubed ham steak or reduced-sodium deli ham (about 8 ounces)


  1. Position oven rack in middle of oven; preheat to 375 degrees F. Lightly coat a 9-by-13-inch broiler-safe baking dish with cooking spray.

  2. Whisk flour and 1/2 cup milk in a small bowl until smooth. Bring the remaining 3 1/2 cups milk to a simmer in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Whisk in the flour mixture. Reduce heat to medium; simmer, whisking often, until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Gradually whisk in Cheddar, mozzarella and pepper, whisking until melted and smooth.

  3. Combine hash browns (or shredded potatoes), peas and ham in a large bowl. Add the cheese mixture; stir to coat. Spoon the mixture into the prepared baking dish. Cover with foil. Bake until hot throughout and bubbly around the edges, 55 to 65 minutes. Remove foil. Switch oven to broil; broil the casserole until the top is lightly browned, 3 to 4 minutes.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
