Scalloped Potatoes & Ham

Serves: 4

1 ham steak, cubed
4-5 medium potatoes, peeled and cut 1/4" thick
1/2 - 1 c. milk
1/3 stick butter
1 T. flour
1 t. salt
1/2 t. pepper
1/4 t. garlic powder
1 T. Parmesan cheese, grated
1 c. cheddar cheese, shredded

Place potatoes in a large bowl; mix with salt, pepper, Parmesan cheese and garlic powder. Stir in ham. Meanwhile in a saute pan, melt butter. Add flour and stir constantly for 2 minutes or until flour barely starts to turn brown. Add 1/2 c. milk and stir quickly until mixture boils. Turn stove down and cook 1 minute more. Add more milk, if needed, until consistency of buttermilk. Pour mixture onto potatoes and ham; mix well. Put into a greased 2-quart baking dish or 9 x 9 glass dish (no metal). Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour, stirring every 20 minutes. During the last 5 minutes, top with cheddar cheese.

Tips: This is a fairly easy way to put together scalloped potatoes and ham. You could also use leftover holiday ham. If you prefer a creamier sauce, light cream can be substituted for the milk. I like to serve this meal with green beans. They have a great complimentary flavor. I also shared this as one of our family's favorite recipes on Life as MOM's Recipe Swap.
