Ham & Cheese Scalloped Potatoes

This is an old favorite in our house.

Hearty, inexpensive and delicious, all this recipe took was four small potatoes, a handful of chopped, pre-cooked ham, and a couple of already on-hand dairy products.

It is absolutely perfect for the frugal, comfort food-loving bakers!


4 Yukon Gold potatoes

1 c. cooked and chopped ham

1/4 c. milk

1/4 c. shredded cheddar cheese

2 Tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese {optional}

1 Tbsp. margarine or butter, divided


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a regular pie pan.

Wash and peel potatoes. Cut into 1/4 inch slices until all potatoes are sliced. Pour milk into empty pie pan. Then layer the potato slices around the pan in a circular manner.

Sprinkle the chopped ham on top of the potatoes. This is where I added my grated Parmesan cheese, but it’s not a necessary ingredient! Next, sprinkle the entire pan with the shredded cheddar cheese. Finally, divide the 2 Tbsp. of butter into five smaller chunks and place randomly on top of the mixture in the pan.

Placing the divided butter randomly throughout the pan will help the dish cook more evenly, and add more flavor!

Bake for 42-45 minutes. The top will be a gorgeous, crispy golden color, and the potatoes should be fork-tender.

Sit down, relax, and enjoy the delicious frugality! ❤
