Creamy Black Forest Potato Casserole~Robynne

Robynne Glenn


Comfort food at it's best! This cheesy casserole is a big hit with my family. I can't resist any recipe that marries the flavors of cheese, ham and mustard, but when you add potatoes, it jumps to a new level of yummy goodness. Try it! You'll see =)

Therefore, it has always been a challenge when sharing recipes with others. I doubt I make dishes the same way twice. So, I advise you to use my recipes the same way.

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. degrees. Grease a 2-quart rectangular baking dish; set aside.
  2. For sauce, in a medium saucepan, cook onion in hot butter over medium heat for 4 to 5 minutes or until tender. Stir in flour and mustard. Gradually stir in milk. Cook and stir until mixture is slightly thickened and bubbly. Reduce heat to low. Whisk in cream cheese until smooth (this is where i add in additional seasoning). Stir in half of the Gruyere cheese until melted. Stir in chives.
  3. In a large bowl, combine potatoes, ham, and sauce. Transfer mixture to the prepared baking dish.
  4. Bake, covered, about 1 hour or until potatoes are tender. Stir gently. Sprinkle with crushed bagel chips and the remaining Gruyere cheese. Bake uncovered for 10 to 15 minutes more or until cheese is melted. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
