Ready for a comforting, easy, and delicious one-dish dinner? Try this Ham and Cheese Sandwich Casserole! Thanks so much to Country Crock for sponsoring today’s dinner recipe.
I talked all summer about looking forward to school starting again. I remembered fondly all the friends, activities, and routines that we were missing on summer break, but I seemed to have forgotten how BUSY we get when school is in session. I mentioned last week that my PTA job has been keeping me occupied. Add in homework and after school classes, and there’s hardly time to think about what’s for dinner!
For busy weeknights, nothing beats an easy one-dish meal. We all know and love the classic ham and cheese sandwich, and I wanted to turn that into a filling, family-pleasing casserole. I think you will enjoy this Ham and Cheese Sandwich Casserole loaded with sourdough, a creamy cheese sauce, ham, and baked tomatoes.
Normally I use butter to make cheese sauce, so I wasn’t sure how it would turn out with Country Crock instead. I have very fond memories of Country Crock because my late grandmother ALWAYS had a tub of it on the Sunday dinner table. I have eaten it spread on bread for as long as I can remember, but I haven’t used it for cooking. Let me tell you, the sauce turned out GREAT! Look at that smooth, creamy, cheesy goodness (sorry for the terrible lighting on my stove):
Now that I know Country Crock can make such a perfect sauce and has less fat and calories than butter, it will be my go-to ingredient for creamy sauces in the future! I hope your family enjoys this delicious sandwich turned casserole, and I know you will love how easy it is to make, even on busy school nights!
