Scalloped Potatoes and Ham

This recipe is from the Pioneer Woman and boy is it yummy! My family always made scalloped potatoes and ham growing up so when I stumbled upon this the other day I knew I had to try my hand at it. It was absolutely delicious! You can search her original recipe online, but in this one I scaled it back a little bit and I’ll give you my measurements. It was plenty for our family of three with a big Tupperware of leftovers for tomorrow 🙂

Ingredients:
– 6-7 russet potatoes, washed and dried
– 1/2 large yellow onion, diced
– 2 cups diced ham
– 1/2 cup half and half
– 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
– 1/8 cup all purpose flour
– black pepper to taste
– 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
– 1 cup grated Monterey Jack cheese

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350F. Spray an 8×11-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
In a large skillet, heat up some olive oil, and add the onion. Sauté about 2 minutes or until they start to turn translucent. Add in the ham and cook for about 4 minutes and thoroughly heated. Remove from heat and set aside.
Slice up your potatoes very thinly, about 1/8 inch thick and set aside.
In a glass mixing cup, add the heavy whipping cream and the half and half. Heat for about a minute or so in the microwave, until warm. Whisk in the flour and the pepper until completely combined. Set aside.
Combine the jack and cheddar cheeses in a bowl and set aside as well.
Now we’ll move on to assembly:
Take your casserole dish you prepared earlier and start with a layer of potatoes, next spoon 1/3 of the ham/onion mixture on top, followed by 1/3 of the grated cheese mixture, and pour 1/3 of the milk mixture over the top. Repeat this three times finishing with a good layer of cheese on the top. Cover the dish with foil and bake for 50 minutes in your preheated oven. Remove the foil and cook for an additional 20 minutes. Check the potatoes for tenderness after the 20 minutes is up, you may need to put it back in for an additional 10 minutes or so.
Remove from the oven and cool for a few minutes before serving. Serve with a side of veggies.
This is a very toddler friendly meal also! 🙂
