This is incredibly delicious and TOTAL comfort food. The recipe is very easy to make, I used red potatoes and sliced them VERY thin, but still had to add an additional 30 minutes for this to be cooked properly. The only thing that did was to drive me crazy waiting to get to them because the smell coming from my oven was heavenly. Thanks Inez for the great dish!

I actually made this without the ham for a side dish. I sometimes make scalloped potatoes using 1-2 cans cream of chicken soup and a little milk, but I pre-cook the potatoes & onions in a large frying pan in about 2 cups of water first for about 10 minutes first before layering in my casserole, then they only need about 30-45 mins. in the oven. I did not do that this time as I just didn't feel like dirtying another large dish, so I cooked these according to the recipe,except I covered with foil and removed for the last 1/2 hr. which I thought was probably good as they browned and crisped up a fair bit after this so I wonder if they would have been too browned on top for my liking without the foil for the entire time. I cooked for the time stated and once I served them up, the odd one throughout that was cut a little thicker, could have used an extra few minutes, but I certainly did not have any major problems with these not being cooked well. I really enjoyed the addition of the thyme as I like the flavour of it.I sprinkled a little extra on top along with a little parsley for colour. We enjoyed as a side dish and I would like to try again with the ham,I bet the flavours complement well!

Great comfort food!! I was looking for something easy to throw together and this fit the bill. I used a honey ham steak, cubed, half of an onion, chopped, a 20 oz. pkg. of refrigerated home fries, (sliced potatoes), and shredded cheddar cheese. I really didn't measure any of this stuff, just layered it into an 8x8 casserole dish and poured the soup/milk/thyme mixture (I did measure the milk and thyme) over it. I baked it for the required time, and it came out perfect! Served it with steamed buttered baby carrots and hot rolls. This is so good I'll be taking the leftovers to work for lunch tomorrow! Thanks for an easy-peasy delicious recipe, Nezz!

Used up my last over Easter ham to make this dish. So glad, because my teenage son, absolutely loved it! I was thrilled when he complimented me not once but twice on how good those potatoes were. Thanks for another great recipe!

This was excellent! I prepared the casserole while my kids were napping and then threw it in the oven an hour and a half before supper time. I've been searching for lower calorie meals that would satisfy both my DH and my picky kids - and we all loved this! I used cream of celery rather than mushroom because it was lower in calories and a whole tsp of thyme. Thanks for posting!!

This was very good. I didn't have shredded american so I used shredded cheddar. I also used half & half to make the sauce creamier and it was good. I didn't know how thick to slice my potatoes so next time I will slice them paper thin. Mine I slices thick. Thanks for sharing!!!! I will make this again

I had leftover Thanksgiving ham and yukon gold potatoes but used cheddar in place of the American cheese. This was super and easy and delicious. The leftovers were even better! Loved the crusty edges mine got. In our house, the crusty edges are something to fight over!

I made this for my husband, the guy who MUST have meat at every meal, and he loved it. I cooked it covered for the first 45 minutes and added french fried onions when I uncovered it. Yummy!
