Recipe by Baby Kato
After New Years, I had leftover ham and wanted to use it up. I love Herbs de provence, potatoes, ham and peas and decided to make a quick and easy casserole, based on scalloped potatoes. This is a very versatile recipe, layered like scalloped potatoes it works beautifully. In a hurry, make it the casserole way, just throw all the ingredients except for the garnish in a large bowl and mix well. Next pour the mixture into a prepared dish, garnish and place in the oven as is. (If you are making it this way you may want to coarsly chop the onions and ham) It is a very tasty dish prepared either way.

YUMMY!!! Made this for the Aussie/NZ Recipe Swap #88 tag game and this was great. I made as instructed and I have never used Herbs De Provence in a scallop/ham recipe and it gave this a great flavor. DH inhaled it so there was nothing left. Will be making this again. Thank you for posting.

Directions See How It's Made
- Cheese Sauce:.
- In a small sauce pan, melt butter and whisk in flour, then slowly add the milk and half & half cream.
- Season with mustard, salt, pepper and Herbs de Provence.
- Cook the sauce on medium heat, stirring until smooth and boiling.
- Lower the heat and add the cheese, mix until melted, then remove from heat and set aside until required.
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- In a lightly greased dish, layer half the potatoe slices, then scatter the onion and peas on top.
- Next layer all the ham slices overtop of the potatoes.
- Pour half of the cheese sauce over the ham and potatoe mixture.
- Layer the remaining potatoes ontop then pour the rest of the cheese sauce, garnishing with the rest of the cheese and herbs.
- Bake in a preheated 350 % oven, uncovered for 50 - 60 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender. I start checking after 40 minutes.
- This is wonderful served with fresh crusty bread and your favorite white wine.
