Old Fashion Scalloped Potatoes and Ham

Old Fashion Scalloped Potatoes and Ham


4-5 medium russet potatoes, cleaned and sliced thin (peeling optional)

1 small onion, chopped

4 tablespoons butter

4 tablespoons flour

¼ cup parmesan cheese

½ teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon pepper

3 cups milk

2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

3 cups precooked ham, diced 

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. 

Scrub and cut 4-5 medium russet potatoes.  Slice thin.  Chop 1 small onion.  Dice ham into bite size pieces.  

Over medium-high heat in a medium saucepan, melt 4 tablespoons butter and add the onion.  Cook until softened, about 3-4 minutes.  Sprinkle in 4 tablespoons flour and mix well.  Continue to cook and whisk for about 2 minutes until browning some.  Slowly add 3 cups milk while continuing to whisk.  Whisk and cook until the mixture thickens, about 3-4 minutes.  Add parmesan cheese, garlic powder, salt and pepper and stir.  

Prepare a 9 x 13-inch baking dish by coating with butter.  Add about 1/3 of the potato slices, top with 1/3 of the diced ham, ½ cup cheddar cheese, and 1/3 of the sauce.  Repeat two more times, but, use a full cup of cheese on the top layer.  Cover with aluminum foil.  Bake for 90 minutes, then uncover and bake another 20-25 minutes until nicely brown and bubbling.  Allow to set for 10 minutes before serving.
