Scalloped Potatoes & Ham

This dish is great for warming you up on a chilly Fall night. Talk about comfort food. J I got the recipe from Ashley over at Delish. I added cubed ham to it to make it a full meal. Cancy really seemed to like it. I did too!! I added a little hot sauce to mine & it was perfect. Enjoy!

Scalloped Potatoes & Ham

2 Tbsp unsalted butter
1 onion, finely chopped
1 tsp dried thyme
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
2 1/2 pounds russet potatoes (5 medium), peeled and sliced 1/8 inch thick
1 c low-sodium chicken broth
1 c heavy cream
2 bay leaves
1 c cheddar cheese, shredded

1 ham steak, cubed (not in the original recipe)


Adjust oven rack to the middle position and heat oven to 425°F. Melt the butter in a large dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in the thyme, garlic, salt and pepper and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the potatoes, broth, cream, cubed ham, and bay leaves. Bring the mixture to a simmer. Reduce the heat to medium-low, cover, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the potatoes are almost tender, about 10 minutes.

Discard the bay leaves. Transfer mixture to 8-in square baking dish or other baking dish(es) as desired. Gently press the potatoes into an even layer and sprinkle cheddar over the top. Bake until cream is bubbling around the edges and the top is golden brown, 15-20 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes before serving.
