Best Scalloped Potatoes & Ham Ever

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.


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.

  1. Marty, okay I've just had my coffee and was not hungry and now I am! That looks scrumptious and easy to make! Thanks for sharing this with us on this beautiful Sunday!
    Have a wonderful day~

  2. Marty this looks and sounds divine. Ham and ultimate in comfort food! I grew up on this type of dish so it brings back many happy memories.Love the idea of the large slices of onion too. A perfect Sunday meal.

  3. Your Scalloped potatoes looks delicious, and so easy to make. I like the addition of onion for extra flavor, and that you don't have to cook the potatoes before assembling the casserole. My mom made "scalloped" potatoes, which required cooking the the potaotes first, so I rarely made them. Call me lazy.

  4. One of my favorite dishes! I don't add the cheese, though, I grew up with my mom doing them with milk, four and butter instead of the cream of mushroom. Yours is far easier! This makes me want it right now ;-)

  5. Oh boy does that sound delicious! Thank you for sharing. I plan on making that for dinner this week!
    Enjoy your Sunday!
