Cheesy Scalloped potatoes and ham


This is a delicious comfort food that feeds a crowd and is perfect for using leftover ham.
 (you may omit the ham if you prefer)

Cheesy Scalloped potatoes and ham

1 TBSP Butter
2 TBSP flour
2 C milk
1 tsp salt (reduce salt if you are using ham)
1/2 medium onion (finely diced)
1/4 tsp pepper
1 TBSP. Parsley flakes
1 C reduced fat cheddar cheese (grated)
2 pounds red potatoes (thinly sliced)
6 oz ham, cubed

Preheat oven to 375.

In a large saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add onion and cook until onions are translucent. Mix in the flour , and stir constantly with a whisk for one minute. Stir in milk. Add salt, pepper, and parsley. Cook until mixture has thickened (will be several minutes). Stir in cheese and continue stirring until melted, about 30 to 60 seconds.

Add potatoes and stir to mix thoroughly. Then pour mixture into a greased 9x13 baking dish. 

Cover with foil and cook for 25-30 minutes. Remove tinfoil and continue cooking another 25-30 minutes or until potatoes are tender.

Allow to cool for 5-10 minutes before serving.

I am so trying this recipe! I made some scalloped potatoes the other night, and they were SO bland even after adding seasonings. I like your cheesy potatoes better!
