Dinner with Marshmallows?

Heck ya!

I had a few packages of primrose ham steaks in the freezer and found this recipe. I wasn't too sure what it would taste like but I figured in the end it would be ham and potato so how bad could it be?

Oh my gosh, tasty goodness in my mouth!

Adam's comment before we ate was "How bad can it be it has marshmallows and pineapple and ham, all good eats!"

Easy meal- really easy meal and super kid friendly (not that I have kids I need friendly foods for- but none the less)

The recipe, as is makes 2 servings. However, I used 2 potatoes (cause I had them in the kitchen) and 2 full primrose ham steaks so I didn't have one steak left in the fridge. And you know what I'm glad we doubled it - we had some extra potato but the ham really cooks down and we both ate one steak.

Additionally I used crushed instead of tidbit pineapple because, well I just prefer it.

I was going to omit the butter that you brown the ham in, but decided, as I read the recipe, that the butter is used to help make a sauce for later, so do use the butter!

Again, easy, tasty, and fun meal!

Sweet Potato Ham Casserole from Tasteofhome.com

1 large sweet potato, about (10 ounces)
1/4 cup water
1 fully cooked ham slice (1/2 pound and 3/4 inch thick)
1 tablespoon butter
1/3 cup unsweetened pineapple juice
2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
1 can (8 ounces) pineapple chunks, drained
1/3 cup miniature marshmallows

Peel sweet potato and cut into chunks. Place in a microwave-safe dish; add water. Cover and microwave on high for 7-9 minutes or until tender; drain and set aside.

Cut ham into two pieces. In a skillet, brown ham in butter on both sides. In a bowl, combine pineapple juice and brown sugar; stir until sugar is dissolved. Pour over ham. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 5-7 minutes or until slightly thickened.

Transfer ham to a greased shallow 1-qt. baking dish. Place sweet potato and pineapple around edge of dish. Pour brown sugar mixture over the top.

Bake, uncovered, at 400° for 12-15 minutes or until heated through. Sprinkle marshmallows around edge. Bake 3-5 minutes longer or until the marshmallows are golden brown. Yield: 2 servings.
