Easter means ham, right? And with ham you have….cheesy potatoes. That’s a given! Skip the box and try this version with spiralized potatoes. Saves time and they’re to die for!
I know a lot of people think of only zucchini noodles when they hear the word “spiralized”, but you can do so much more! I love to make sweet potato noodles, or larger slices of regular potatoes for casseroles. If you find yourself frequently buying store-bought zoodles, consider buying a spiralizer! They’re so much cheaper than they used to be!
To make slices, instead of longer noodles, simply put a slice half-way through the veggie or fruit you’re going to spiralize. This cuts them into pieces. I love this technique for apple pie, too!
This casserole comes out creamy and cheesy, just like a boxed version…but oh so much better. You can make it ahead of time and just pop it in the oven with the ham! I’ve even done this in the slow cooker to take up less space –just cook it on HIGH heat for 4 hours.
Skip the box and make this easy homemade cheesy potato casserole using spiralized potatoes. YUM!
- 2 pounds russet potatoes, spiralized or sliced thinly To get slices while spiralizing, slice halfway through the potato.
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 cup onion finely chopped
- 1 can low sodium cream of chicken soup Try Aldi's FIt n' Active
- 2 cups shredded colby-jack cheese, split
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
Preheat the oven to 375º. Coat a 9x9 casserole dish with cooking spray.
Spiralize the potatoes into slices, rinsing and drying after. (Slice 1/4" thick if you don't have a spiralizer). Feel free to peel the skin if desired.
In a small bowl, mix spices, cream of chicken soup and 1 cup of cheese. Slowly pour in milk. Stir.
Put potatoes in the casserole dish. Top with soup mixture. Stir to coat. Sprinkle with remaining cup of cheese. Top with foil. Bake 30 minutes. Uncover for 10-15 minutes, or until brown. Sprinkle with parsley, if desired.
Season with additional salt and pepper, if desired. Serve immediately.
