Ham and Potato Gratin

READY IN: 1hr 30mins
Recipe by Lainey39

This makes a wonderful one-dish meal served with a salad. You could also omit the ham and have a great side dish. I've also taken this to potlucks and it gets rave reviews.

I made this to go alongside some steak for dinner, instead of mixing the herbs I just sprinkled a bit of each onto each layer and I didn't fry the breadcrumbs just sprinkled them on top at the end minus the butter. I also used some cubed bacon instead of ham as that what I had on hand. My minor changes did nothing to effect the taste of this dish, it was absolutely delicious, I love the dijon in this, it really makes this taste a lot classier than your average potato gratin. Yum!
