Our Family's Scalloped Potatoes and Ham


1 My Mom taught me this recipe. It was of my childhood favorites, and now is one of my daughters favorites too! Her secret is use"
9 x 13 baking pan layer
8 sliced potatoes depending on size of potatoes
2 Ham that has been cubed (great if you have leftover ham, if not ham
1 pound steaks about a each should do)
1 Wooden Spoon (it might sound picky, but it Works!)
4 cups of Milk
8 tablespoons of Flour
1 stick of Butter (Don't substitute the Butter!)
1 teaspoon of Salt (but I opt out since the ham has the salt in it)


First make a white sauce, in a 9x13 baking pan layer with sliced potatoes 5-8 depending on size of potatoes. Next layer Ham that has been cubed (great if you have leftover ham, if not 2 ham steaks about a one pound each should do). Repeat layers, usually about three layers. Bake at 350 degrees , for an hour. If it starts to get too brown for your liking cover with foil the last minutes.
Melt Butter in large saucepan.
Add Flour and salt (remember I opt out on this), stir constantly until smooth.
Remove from heat
Add milk gradually.
Return to stove top and cook stirring occasionally until thick and smooth.
