The ultimate in comfort food, this Scalloped Potatoes with Ham dish is actually fairly light!

Scalloped Potatoes with Ham
Serves 6

3 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 cup flour
3 cups 2% milk
6 cups thinly sliced russet potatoes (about 3 large potatoes)
1/3 pound low-sodium ham steak, chopped (ask deli to slice ham “ham steak” thick for you)
1/2 small onion, grated

Preheat oven to 375°F. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add in parsley, thyme, salt, pepper and flour, and whisk together. Cook for 2 minutes, whisking occasionally.

Slowly add milk, whisking constantly, until smooth. Turn heat up to high and bring mixture to a boil, whisking constantly. Turn heat back down to medium and continue whisking for 2 minutes.

Combine potatoes, ham and onion in a large bowl. Spray a 9×13-inch pan with non-stick spray and add in half the potato mixture. Top with half the sauce; then repeat the layers. Cover the pan with foil and bake for 65 minutes. Remove the foil and bake an additional 15-20 minutes, or until potatoes are tender and top is golden brown.

    This recipe is excellent. It actually wasn’t that much work either. I wasn’t sure if I was supposed to peel the potatoes or not, so I followed the picture for the recipe. I did like them with the skin on as shown. I was worried, that they would not cook in time as the potatoes were not pre-boiled. However, I noticed on the picture the potatoes were sliced thin, so I sliced them close to 1/8″. They were perfectly cooked. I liked that the potatoes weren’t loaded with sauce and it had a nice flavor with the thyme. The only change I made was using 1% milk, because it is what I had. I would definitely consider making this again.

    This was excellent. It didn’t take that much time to prepare either. The recipe did not indicate to peel the potatoes, or not, or how thin to cut them. I followed the lead of the recipe photo and left the peel on and cut them about 1/8″ thin. I liked that the potatoes were not loaded with sauce. They also had a nice lite flavor from the thyme sauce. They were perfectly cooked in the time indicated. TY

    This tasted very good and was very forgiving. I sliced the potatoes thin but I chopped the onions instead of grating them. I only had skim milk and it tasted good but next time I will use the 2% milk for a thicker sauce.

    This was a really good side dish. I sliced my potatoes into thin slices and followed the recipe as written. It was very flavorful and creamy. I love how the sauce wasn’t overpowering. I will be making this again. Thanks!

    Delicious! And way better than the dehydrated stuff from a box that I ate as a kid! This recipe was super easy using a mandoline slicer! I’ll be making this one again and again for sure!

    I made this for my AllRecipes Allstars April tasks, based on my love for butter and my husbands love for Scalloped Potatoes and Ham. This was so easy and thyme added a special dimension. My honey said, “This is definitely a keeper!”
