The best way I know to use up Holiday ham. Now I cook ham all the time, almost once every 6 weeks or less, so I love to keep bags of chopped ham in my freezer. There are so many great uses and this is one. I love to use a smoky gouda for this and a little bacon and onion which just takes this dish over the top. Otherwise it is a pretty basic scalloped potato recipe. Give it a try for dinner one night. I serve this with a fresh salad and nothing more. It is rich, deep in flavors and a perfect way to use up some of that ham in the freezer.
