Was an okay way to get rid of the leftover ham from Christmas. I would have cut the ham a little smaller though. We subbed the fresh onion with 1 tsp of onion powder and added 1/2 tsp of garlic powder, but we felt it missed something still. Will perhaps try a little cayenne or some herbs as another reviewer suggested. Thanks for helping clean out the Christmas fridge!

We just loved this dish. It's a fabulous recipe. I used milk instead of cream but it's still very rich and wonderful. I do agree with another reviewer that it takes at least 20 minutes for the liquid to start bubbling, not 4-5 but it's still simple and easy to make. Made for Went to the Market cooking tag game.

Wow! This is a keeper! I have made scalloped potatoes and ham before but this is much more delicious! It will be my go-to recipe!

I made a few changes because of ingredients on hand or taste - since I was boiling the ham meat off the bone, I used the stock instead of chicken broth. I added about 1t of garlic powder, and 1/2t each of oregano and rosemary; I used dry minced onion (1T) instead of fresh and I added to the stock before mixing with the cream. The cream was no problem and neither was the cook time. Thank you for sharing!
