Ham Au Gratin
- About 4 cups peeled and sliced red or golden potatoes
- 2 Tbsp Flour
- 2 Tbsp Butter
- 1 C Milk
- About 4 C Grated Cheddar
- Leftover Spiral Cut ham (about 6 slices)
Peel and slice potatoes to about 1/8” thick. Rinse.
Put into 9×9 square baking dish (buttered or sprayed with PAM)
Add about 2/3 of the grated cheese over the potatoes.
In saute pan, melt butter. Add flour and mix well into butter. Add milk and stir over medium heat until well blended and lumps disappear.
Pour onto potatoes / cheese and mix well until they are all well blended.
Cover with foil and bake 45 min at 450 degrees.
In the last 10 min, uncover and put ham and remaining cheese on top. Finish baking for 10 more min.
If you use other types of potatoes, such as Idaho, you might want to blanch them first by cooking them partially in the microwave and draining / drying them prior to baking. Sometimes these potatoes don’t get soft unless you do so.
