    I found the sauce to be very runny. Should the recipe read 3 tablespoons instead of teaspoons flour?

    Great easy recipe, but sounded a bit bland, so added my very favorite seasoning, Parmesan garlic, my very favorite brand is Johnny’s. My family is a group of big eaters, so doubled, and used condensed milk for second part of milk, and cooked in9x11 dish. Family loved it!

    This was a fail for me. I followed the recipe, with the only difference being I used a shallot instead of onion, and sauteed it as others did with the butter. The sauce was thick in the saucepan, but after it came out of the oven it was watery and did not stick to the potatoes or ham. So it was wet chunks of ham and potato swimming in a watery puddle, and the cheese flavour didn't come through.

    Does this scale? I never thought to make this for only two people, and I'm usually feeding 6-8. I'm wondering about cooking time when using a larger dish.

    I've made this many times now, and I usually now "sear" the chopped ham with some chopped bacon in an ovenproof deep pan, add some kind of chopped veg like zucchini or broccoli, saute with the onion for a minute, then just layer the potatoes on top and continue as directed in the same pan. Also add a sprinkle of cheese and bake uncovered last 15 min. It's one of my favorites! I like this much better than the recipes that have you mix it all together. Nicer tastes and prettier presentation. Thank you so much!
