This is an easy, forget about it crockpot recipe.
- 2 cups ham, diced
- 6 -8 medium potatoes, sliced
- 1 cup chopped onion
- 3⁄4 teaspoon pepper (to taste)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt (to taste)
- 1 cup cheddar cheese, grated
- 1 (10 3/4 ounce) can cream of celery soup
- Alternate ingredients in cooker as follows:.
- Half of the ham, potatoes, onions, salt and pepper and cheese.
- Repeat with second layer.
- Spread soup over top.
- Sprinkle with paprika if desired.
- Cook on low 8-9 hours OR on high 4-5 hours.
- May also use oven at 350 degrees for 1 hour.
I also mixed the can of soup with milk (actually 3/4 can cream and 1/4 water because my milk had gone sour) and parboiled the potatoes and onion before assembling the dish. It still took an extra 15 min. to get completely done, and could have easily stayed in the oven 30 more min. I think this dish would be better with either cream of mushroom or cream of chicken soup than the cream of celery. While that was not bad, it just could have been better. I may try this again in the crock pot, but probably not, because raw potatoes never get quite done to my taste in the crock pot. It was tasty as it was, but just not quite the stellar dish I had hoped for.
I had potatoes that were on the verge of going and ham in the freezer. It was quite cold today so I threw this in the crock pot. This is comfort food and my husband almost licked the plate. This is his type of meal- not complicated with ingredients he recognized- potatoes and ham. LOL! He's quite happy that there's some leftover for lunch tomorrow.
I made a Smithfield ham for Labor Day and had quite a bit left so this was the perfect way to use some of that ham. Had everything on hand and loved using my crock pot for this meal. I did use a bit more cheese in the layers and omitted the salt. Cooked on low for about 8 1/2 hours and served with green beans. Wonderful tasting scalloped potatoes and ham and a big plus, no mess on the stove to clean up. Thank you so much sweetie for posting this recipe. Made and reviewed for the Aussie recipe swap #32.
