Great use of leftover smoked ham from a holiday or Sunday dinner. I even freeze my leftover ham bits to use later just for this dish.
This is real comfort food!

How to Make CHEESEY SCALLOPED POTATOES WITH HAM

Step-by-Step

  1. Melt butter in a saucepan, stir in flour until smooth. Add cold milk a little at a time whisking to avoid lumps.
    Cook over medium high heat stirring constantly until mixture comes to a boil. Continue cooking for 1 minute. Turn heat off and stir in the cheese, salt, pepper and mustard.
  2. In a greased 9x9 casserole dish spread 2-3 tablespoons of sauce in the bottom.
    Place a single layer of potatoes over sauce. Randomly place ham pieces over potatoe layer and cover with a thin layer of cheese sauce.
    Repeat the layers until all the potatoes have been used- I usually have 3 layers.
    Spread any remaining sauce over the top.
    Cover with aluminum foil and bake @ 350 for one hour.
    Check that the potatoes are tender by inserting a sharp paring knife in several places.
    It should slide in and out easily with little resistance.
    Remove the foil and continue cooking until top is browned, about 15-20 minutes.
