Not Your Ordinary Scalloped Potatoes With Ham

READY IN: 1hr 50mins
Recipe by Debi9400

I married a wonderful man of Ukrainian ancestry who frequently requests scalloped potatoes and ham. I like food with a bit of flavour and spice so find the usual recipes sort of bland. Decided if I had to make them, they were going to have to be kicked up a notch. So this is it - my version - hope you enjoy it. * if you don't like it as spicy, reduce the cayenne and chili pepper to 1/2 tsp each. Also, asiago or parmesan cheese can be used in place of the romano.
