Ham and Potato Bake

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Chef at Heart

I would imagine at some point this came from someone outside of my family, but no one remembers who. If you prefer, use four peeled and cooked potatoes, sliced.

The first time I tried this one exactly as it says, but we didn't care for the potatoes, they were a bit salty. Second time, I used fresh potatoes, added chopped onion, green pepper, garlic, and peas instead of carrots and 1/4 cup of chicken stock with the milk. I also added black pepper, basil, oregano and a dash of hot sauce. It was really good!!
