Cheesy Scalloped Ham and Potatoes

What’s on the menu today? Cheesy Scalloped Ham and Potatoes! If it involves cheese, I’m in! This dish does require a little more time to prepare, but it’s very easy and well worth the effort.

Chop the onions and set them in a skillet with a little butter to sauté on medium heat until tender and browned.

While the onions are cooking, dice the ham. I like mine somewhat small because I can use less and still make sure every bite has plenty of ham in it.

After you've washed the potatoes, slice them into about 1/8” wide slices.

Grate the cheddar cheese and set aside.

Spray a 9 X 13” baking pan with cooking spray. Layer half the potato slices in the baking pan, and sprinkle half the ham and half the sautéed onions.

Layer the Swiss cheese and sprinkle half the cheddar cheese on top. Sprinkle salt and pepper if you’d like.

Begin again, layering the potatoes, ham, sautéed onions, and then lastly, the rest of the cheddar cheese. The Swiss cheese is only placed in the middle of this casserole.

Open the evaporated milk and pour evenly over the entire casserole.

Bake at 350° for about 45 minutes. Let set 5-10 minutes and serve.
