Delicious recipe for the use of leftover baked ham. Only recommendation would be to cook 15-20 minutes longer. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Delicious, very easy to make. I made 1/2 extra of the sauce because the portion stated was not enough. Also topped it with smoked paprika. Very Very good! item not reviewed by moderator and published
OHHHH YUMMMM!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Comfort food. Combined with a vegetable side, it made a nice cold weather meal, and is a great way to use up leftover baked ham. (The bone and the rest will go to a pea or lentil soup.) I made one major modification, which was to skip the cheddar and grate a few ounces of Gruyere cheese over the top, like in Dauphinois potatoes, which added a very nice flavor but fewer calories than the 2 cups of cheddar, which seemed just a little too decadent for me. The amount of sauce seemed inadequate when putting it together, but after cooking covered (yes, do this for an hour, then uncover for about 15 minutes) the potatoes gave off moisture. The caramelized onions add a lot (I used two as in the recipe and sliced very thin). Would definitely make again, but may increase the amount of sauce a bit to compensate for the absence of all the cheddar. Or maybe I'll just add that cheddar.... item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was the best scalloped ham and potato recipe I've ever made. I added one can of mushroom soup to the white sauce. Made right amount of sauce to complete the 3 layers needed. Could have increased the amount of ham. Everyone loved it, even me, as I am not a fan of the dish. Very creamy and yummy. Would definitely make this again. item not reviewed by moderator and published

excellent recipe..The only ingredient I used different is montery jack cheese. What a fabulous flavor. I left it in the oven for an additional 20 minutes. I probably should have covered it while baking..I would definately make again... item not reviewed by moderator and published
