Ingredients and Variations

Potatoes – Yellow potatoes are best for scalloped potatoes because they hold their shape and have thinner skins so you don’t have to peel them, but any variety will work. A bag of frozen diced potatoes will work in a pinch!

Ham – Leftover ham, sliced summer sausage, or even crumbled bacon provides the perfect salty complement to the rich and creamy sauce and starchy potatoes.

Sauce – Cream of chicken soup makes up the creamy, flavorful base this recipe needs. Cream of mushroom, cream of celery, or even French onion soup will work as well. For a thinner sauce, stir in some half-and-half or milk in Step 3.

Cheese – Choose your cheese! Cheddar has the best, boldest flavor, but you could go with Monterey jack, mozzarella, or a Mexican cheese blend, if desired.

Variations Mix in some spinach, sliced mushrooms, diced celery, or a bag of peas and carrots to the casserole to bulk up the casserole with a little extra nutrition!

How to Make Scalloped Potatoes and Ham

Tips For Success!

  • For even cooking, slice the potatoes in equal widths. A mandoline is excellent for this task, however, be careful as they are very sharp.
  • A dash of nutmeg or white pepper can be sprinkled between the layers of potatoes in Step 4 to compliment the rich flavor of the cheese sauce.
  • Prep easy scalloped potatoes and ham casserole up to a day in advance and keep in the fridge until ready to bake. Add a few minutes to the bake time, if necessary.
