This is my favorite potato casserole. The sour cream in this casserole adds a richness and creamy texture. Adding ham and frozen peas turns an excellent side dish into a satisfying dinner. I usually buy a ham on sale after Christmas or Easter and break it down into portions small enough for one or two meals before freezing. This would certainly be a good way to get ride of some of your leftover Christmas ham if you have some.
