I used most everything in my freezer over the holidays so I could start fresh for the new year. The only thing I still had was a little bit of ham left from Christmas day, so I decided to make one of my favorite dishes ever.
SCALLOPED POTATOES & HAM
I love this, it can be used as a main dish with just a salad or as a side dish if you have a large crowd. ( or if you are like me and you could eat it every day)
You can make as much or as little as you like.
peel potatoes and slice in thin slices
one onion sliced in this slices
shredded cheese ( I like a combo of jack and mozzorella or the pkg. 3 cheese variety)
left over ham cut into small chunks
1 can of cream of mushroom soup
1/3 cup milk
Put a layer of sliced potatoes in bottom of casserole dish ( layer at least two to 3 potatoes deep), then layer some of the onions on top. Sprinkle around a few chunks of the ham, and also sprinkle some of the shredded cheese on top. Spoon on about 1/2 of the soup (straight out of the can) I don't add any salt, but I do grind a small amount of fresh pepper on top.
Repeat for the second layer. Put 1/3 cup milk in the soup can and stir to get all of the rest of the soup mixed in and pour evenly over the top.
Bake in 350 degree oven until potatoes are soft.
Time will vary depending on how big of a casserole dish you make. I usually allow 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Longer if making a really big casserole.
This is perfect as a side dish or main course.
