Description

Make good use of your leftover Easter ham; whip up this yummy comfort food casserole. With a salad on the side, it’s a meal in itself!

Ingredients

  • 3 pounds Russet Or Yukon Gold Potatoes, Washed Thoroughly
  • 2 Tablespoons Butter
  • 1 whole Yellow Onion, Diced
  • 3 cups Diced Ham
  • 1-½ cup Half-and-half
  • 1-½ cup Heavy Cream
  • ¼ cups Flour
  • Black Pepper To Taste
  • 1 cup Grated Cheddar Cheese
  • 1 cup Grated Monterey Jack Cheese
  • Chopped Parsley (optional)

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter a large casserole dish.

Heat butter in a large skillet. Add onions and cook for 1 to 2 minutes, or until they start to turn translucent. Add ham and cook for 3 to 4 minutes until thoroughly heated. Remove from heat and set aside.

Combine half-and-half and cream in a microwave-safe container and nuke for a minute or so, until no longer cold. Whisk in flour and black pepper until totally combined. Set aside. (You may add salt, but cheese and ham are salty, so add sparingly.)

Combine the two grated cheeses. Set aside.

Using a mandoline or slicer, slice potatoes into 1/8-inch slices (very thin.) Layer 1/3 of the potato slices in the buttered casserole dish. Sprinkle on 1/3 of the ham/onion mixture, then 1/3 of the cheese, then pour on 1/3 of the cream mixture.

Repeat this twice more, ending with a sprinkling of cheese and a pouring on of the rest of the cream mixture. Cover dish with foil and bake for 40 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for an additional 20 minutes at least, or until bubbly and hot.

Cut into squares and serve. Sprinkle on chopped parsley if you’d like!

(Note: To speed along the process a bit, you may boil sliced potatoes for 3 to 5 minutes before assembling the casserole. Just drain and slightly cool before assembling.)

We loved it! The next time I think I might go the extra step and boil the potatoes a bit. We love seeing your family’s All American lifestyle. It is 180 degrees different from the Kardashians. I also love your very real UNMartha Stewart cooking directions!

Absolutely delicious recipe. I appreciated reading the reviews and heeded the advice to microwave the potatoes (for four minutes, in my case) before putting together the dish. It came out just perfectly. It’s just two of us and I made 1/2 the recipe and we’ll have plenty for leftovers.

This was outstanding. Read the reviews and baked longer. These are the best I have ever had!

Pretty tasty- next time I will cook for double the time recommended. I pulled out at recommended time when hot and bubbly and still undercooked.

Made this a few times. 1st time the potatoes were under-cooked. 2nd time, precooked the sliced potatoes in the microwave and then the dish turned out perfect.
