"Scalloped Potates and Ham with Cheese"
Serving Size: 1 (175 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 4
"The only recipe I use. I get compliments when people taste my potatoes for the 1st time. I do a few things differently...I cook the onion in the butter before adding flour and I layer the cheese on the potatoes instead of adding it to the mixture; I find it easier to spread. I always make extra because my family loves these left over."
"I made this tonight to use up some leftover Christmas ham and it was delicious. Everyone went back for seconds, which is always a good sign, especially when two of them are picky eaters. I didn't add the onion because of the picky eaters and used onion powder instead. I also added some dry mustard powder too. This one is a keeper. Thanks Barbara"
"LOVED this! I made it with three cans of sliced white potatoes, so the cooking time was a lot less. Was still amazing though."
"After a recent wedding we had a lot of leftover seasoned small canned potatoes. I decided to search RecipeZaar to find a way to use them up. WOW....what a find. I made a pan full with leftover ham pieces and there was NOTHING left. Thanks for a great addition to my menu."
"I made this yesterday to bring to easter dinner at my boyfriends parents (which I had never met before). I ommitted the onion since I do not like them. I added ham, turkey bacon, parmesean cheese to mine also (about 1 cup) and creole seasoning. I also made mine in the crockpot (about 5 hours). i got rave reviews from the entire family. A entire 5 qt crockpot was cleaned out and everyone was asking for more. I will definately keep this recipe and make over and over."
"Loved this! It's different from how I enjoyed it as a kid, but I loved the cheesy taste. :) Thanks for sharing it!"
"My husband loves scalloped ham and potatoes but, with cheese, he adores it! He is a picky eater, so I am PLEASED he found this new recipe delicious...makes MY day!"
"My kids have their own name for this dish: "cheesy potato goodness". Good with ham, kielbasa or meatless."
"This was soooo good! The sauce was wonderful with the potatoes and ham. Some of my potatoes were slightly undercooked, so I might add 15 minutes or increase the temperature slightly next time, as I will be making this again!"
"This smelled so good before I even pulled it out. My aunt used to make something very close to this when I was growing up and this tasted pretty much the same to me, so yummy. I even doubled the recipe and it came out great, just cooked it about 30 min longer. Also used vermont white cheddar and a couple tablespoons of white cooking wine in the sauce. Bad-ass!"
"Fantastic! I have made scalloped potatoes and ham many times before but none have been anywhere near this good. The cheese definitely makes the sauce. I found you can adjust the cheese to your family's liking and the sauce will be fine no matter how much. I used medium cheddar on mine. I didn't have to take the lid off the baking dish for it to brown slightly on top. Then the moisture stayed in and the potatoes were perfect in an hour and a half."
"Simple & delicious to prepare. I stuck to the recipe pretty faithfully. I used shredded cheddar cheese, about 1/4 c. onion and cubed (not sliced) turkey ham in mine. The cheese sauce is wonderful with the cheddar and onions! In the past, I've used recipes that call for Velveeta or American cheese--they pale in compairson with this recipe. My family liked this, and it was served with recipe # 69501 "Fried Broccoli." It's certainly a keeper. Thank you for submitting it!"
"Oh my gosh! My husband made this for diner and all I kept saying was "OMG! THIS IS WONDERFUL". I packed my lunch for work tomorrow before the 16 y/o son got home and eats it al! YUMMY!"
"This recipe was great! This was my second time making scalloped potatoes, I have tried another recipe on this site. Wasn't worth eating, but this one was awesome! It was a hit with my hubby and 2 teenagers. I will have to make this again!"
"Fantastic recipe! This was my first time making scalloped potatoes and I cannot believe how great they turned out! Yummi!"
"Simple, easy, and the end result was very good. I had a leftover ham steak which I diced. I put the ingredients into a casserole as instructed then stirred the potatoes around so all the cheese sauce wouldn't be on the top. I baked as directed...perfect!! I will make this again but will add some salt and pepper for taste."
"I made this for my girlfriend lastnight for dinner. She loved it, it was easy to prepare and turne out perfect. Thank you, she insist i do all the cooking now. tonight its stuffed chicken."
