Creamy, cheesy and delicious this Scalloped Potatoes and ham is a delightful comfort food that is fun and filling for the whole family!
This time of year all that goes through my mind is comfort food. It’s chilly here in Minnesota so we constantly are looking for those meals that will instantly warm us up and just make us sink into our chairs and relax because we know that it’s just something comforting and familiar to us!
Scalloped Potatoes and Ham have always been a family favorite, I’ve been eating it since I was young and making it for my family since I learned how to cook. It’s one of those types of meals that you always want to have in your arsenal for either just a nice Sunday dinner or for when company comes over because you’ll know it will be a hit!
What you probably didn’t know is that this recipe is super simple to whip up! Instead of slicing your potatoes by hand, I like to pop mine into my food processor with the blade attachment for slicing and it literally cuts the time from probably 10 minutes of cutting to two minutes. Score!
This Scalloped Potatoes and Ham recipe is so creamy and cheesy and with the addition of ham in there you have yourself a little salty kick behind each bite as well. I know a lot of people have different way’s that they like to make their recipes but this one has been a long time favorite of mine.
Besides who doesn’t like to add cheese to anything? I mean that is like a golden rule in our house, we always add cheese to things if it is able to have cheese added.
