Make Ahead Ham & Cheese Casserole

Ham is such an Easter staple, many of us have left over ham tonight and are looking for something to do with it besides make sandwiches.  I am in love with the concept of the make ahead casserole because of my daughter's activity schedule.  Some nights I have more time to cook than others.  On softball practice nights we are out from 5:15 to 7:15, so something my husband can throw in the oven while we're out is perfect!  We come home and don't have to wait to eat.
