Scalloped Potatoes and Ham

Be prepared! I am not sure there is a single dish that smells more amazing while it’s baking in the oven.

(Please note: I rarely measure my ingredients when cooking. I tried my best to give you a rough idea of some of the measurements) When it comes to seasoning, I usually just do a couple of shakes. I never measure them! If you love a certain spice, add an extra shake.  :-)

What you will need:

A sauce pan

A 9 X 11 baking dish

1 stick of margarine

A couple spoonfuls of flour

S & P

Thyme

Onion Powder

Parsley

Milk

3lbs of Yukon Gold Potatoes (Washed and thinly sliced with skins on)

011

Ham (Chopped)

Scalloped Potatoes and Ham

Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese

Cooking Spray

What to do:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees

Melt 1 stick of margarine in a sauce pan over medium/low heat

Add about 3 heaping spoonfuls of flour

Season with S & P, Thyme, Onion Powder and Parsley

Give the ingredients a good mix and cook for a couple of minutes

Add about 3-3 ½ cups of milk

Turn the heat to high and bring to a boil. Whisk ingredients for a couple of minutes. Once the sauce becomes thick and smooth remove from heat (Important: Do not leave unattended. This sauce will burn easily and needs to be stirred frequently)

Cover with aluminum foil and bake in a 375 degree oven for about 1 hour and 15 minutes.

Remove foil and bake for an additional 15-20 minutes until there is a nice bubbly crust on top.

(I baked a second dish without ham to be used as a side for my pot roast dinner the following day. I’m all about saving time in the kitchen. Prepare it once, eat it twice) :-) :-)
