Scalloped Potatoes with Ham
One of my favorite childhood recipes is scalloped potatoes. It is hearty, filling and just a delicious comfort food for me and I want to share my recipe!
5-6 medium russet potatoes, peeled and sliced evenly (see picture)
1/2 of a large white or vidalia sweet onion, diced
1 cup of ham (can be deli meat or cubed)
1/3 cup of butter
16 fl oz heavy whipping cream
Salt and Pepper to taste
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Place peeled and cut potatoes in a 13x9 inch pan. Cover with onions and ham and mix together for even distribution. Add enough salt and pepper to taste and then slice the butter and place on top of the potatoes (see picture). Pour the heavy whipping cream over the top of the potatoes and ham and bake for about an hour, stirring a few times in between. The potatoes will be tender and the cream thick and bubbly.

In this recipe I used smoked Krestchmar deli ham, because I haven't bought a half ham for cooking in awhile and it works just as well.
