This recipe is one that I grew up eating. It frequently made an appearance shortly after the holidays as my mom used up leftover holiday ham.

Today I also make this with leftover ham. But I don’t stop there. I’ll also purchase a ham steak and cut it up just to enjoy this recipe any time we want.

How to Make Scalloped Potatoes and Ham

To begin, brush a casserole dish with butter. Set it aside. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.

Finely dice a small onion.

In a saucepan, melt 1/4 cup butter over low heat, and toss in the onions. Let the simmer and sauté gently until the onions are tender.

Meanwhile dice up some of your leftover ham. About 1 1/2 – 2 cups or so.

You’ll also thinly slice about 6 cups of potatoes – whatever kind you like. I used yellow potatoes. Layer half of them in the dish.

Sprinkle in half of the ham, and repeat with the remaining potatoes & ham.

When the onions are tender, stir in 1/4 c flour. Let it cook for a minute.

Stir in 3 cups of milk, and a half teaspoon each of salt, pepper and thyme. Cook this over medium heat, stirring continually until it comes to a boil and thickens. Remove from heat.

Slowly pour the lovely sauce over the top of the potatoes & ham.

Cover this with foil and bake for about 65-75 minutes or until the potatoes are just about done. Remove the foil and bake 15 more minutes.

  1. What a great way to use leftovers! I’m originally from Costa Rica, where families traditionally roast a whole pig’s leg for the holidays. I bet the leftover pork would be great in this.
