TIPS FOR MAKING THIS HAM AND CHEESE POTATO SALAD:

  • For this recipe you’ll want to use a good, smoky ham that is already fully cooked.

    CAN I SUBSTITUTE ANOTHER POTATO IF I CAN’T FIND THE CHILEAN SPLASH POTATOES? THE RECIPE LOOKS GOOD! I’M FROM IOWA…SOMETIMES OUR STORES DON’T CARRY THESE UNIQUE POTATOES.

    THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR RECIPES. ALWAYS APPRECIATE THAT I CAN FIND YOUR RECIPES PRINTABLE. I ALWAYS PRINT ONE FOR MY NEIGHBOR, TOO.

  4. DO YOU REALIZE THAT IN ORDER TO GET BOTH RECIPES FOR THE HAM AND Cheese Potato SALAD>>>>> It took 17….SEVENTEEN>>>>>PAGES JUST TO GET BOTH RECIPES AND DIRECTIONS. THAT IS RIDICULOUS .

      Sally, why didn’t you just print the one page printable recipe at the bottom of the post? In addition, some beginner cooks find the step-by-step photos helpful. However, the step-by-step photos are not in the FREE PRINTABLE recipe I provide for you on this FREE website. 🙂

        What a classy response! You surely made your Mama proud and displayed great Southern charm!
        Thank you for the recipe, for the FREE printable option, on your FREE website! Keep ’em coming!

        By the way, I am old enough to be your mother but I do remember the day when I was a new novice cook and always appreciated step by step photos. No one ever knows how many new cooks are following your blog and appreciate them as well. Job well done!

      2. Vickie – thanks you so much for that! Sure is a blessing to receive a kind word and support these days! Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. It means more than you know! Hugs, Brandie

      3. Amen, when we were just beginner cooks, they didn’t have pictures & details as in your recipes. Even tho I’ve been cooking for many, many years, at times I still find it helpful. This recipe sounds wonderful. Thank you!

        Brandie…I absolutely love the step by step with pictures and I am no beginner….I also print your recipes and I always print front and back side however most of your recipes print on one page, one side.
        I plan to make this potato and ham salad for a Memorial day family reunion. I can’t wait! Thank you for your free recipes!
