Ham and scalloped potatoes

Now that the turkey has been stored away, some of us may have some ham we are thinking of using for a meal. Might I suggest Scalloped potatoes and ham? It is fairly simple and doesn’t take much time to make. You start by spraying a glass 9 x 13 inch pan. In an 8 cup measuring cup pour in 4 cups milk, powdered garlic, onion (unless you want to use a fresh onion), a fairly good size piece of cheddar cheese, I prefer marble, cut in 4 pieces, dry dill and pepper. Microwave on high for 4 minutes.

Peel and slice potatoes, you decide it depends on how many people are sitting down for your meal. Rule of thumb is potatoes are cheaper than meat, so up to you. Slice ham in fairly thin slices. Now to put it together. Take hot milk and cheese from mircrowave, mix 1/2 cup cornstarch in a separate measuring cup with 1 and 1/2 cup water, stir and add to milk mixture stir well, replace to microwave for 2 minutes.

Now to assemble, pour 1/4 of milk mixture in bottom of pan, layer potatoes evenly, then slices of ham, (incidentally this is a good place to hide frozen corn) more milk mixture. The last layer is potatoes and rest of the milk mixture. You want the potatoes covered you don’t want them hard and dry on top. Roast at 400 degrees in oven for around 45 minutes. If you have any questions or comments you can contact me. Enjoy! Cynthia
