Scalloped Potatoes & Ham

I adapted an oven recipe to cook itself while I’m away. It’s ready to serve when I get home, making it a real winner in my book! —Joni Hilton, Rocklin, California

    I've made this at least half a dozen times in the past few years, anytime I've made a ham I make this with some leftovers (and bean soup, of course!) It's simple and comforting, plenty of flavor, perhaps a but salty but I'm ok with that on occasion. Unlike regular scalloped potato recipes there isn't a chance for curdled milk and in the crock pot the potatoes always come out tender. It also seems to be much less fatty than traditional scalloped potatoes. If you're afraid of it being too salty you can use reduced sodium soup and another meat, maybe half chicken and half ham to keep the flavor. I've tried turkey ham and it just didn't have a good texture to me or my husband. I usually use extra, extra ham to increase the protein to carb ratio and plenty of black pepper because that's what hubby likes. If you're not partial to canned soup you won't like this, but I grew up in Wisconsin in the 80's so canned soup is my blood type, lol. Try it for your fussy eater kids (or fussy eater spouse) and to have an economical dish. An inexpensive mandolin can be found online (use the finger guard!) Leave the peels on the potatoes and you can have this ready to put in the crock pot in minutes.

    This is such a simple recipe. Salt seems to be missing. Without salt it is not very good. So add a little salt and it's so delicious and one that I will definitely make again.

    I love this recipe; I like to add sharp cheddar cheese and substitute Beefy Mushroom soup or Creamy Mushroom soup for the original mushroom.
