This tasty potato and ham casserole can be topped with Cheddar cheese.

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 to 2 pounds potatoes, thinly sliced, about 4 to 5 cups
  • 2 cups diced ham
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced celery
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped red or green bell pepper
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 2 cups half-and-half or 1 cup milk and 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried mustard
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chopped parsley or 2 teaspoons dried parsley flakes
  • salt, to taste
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese, optional

Preparation:

Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish. Heat oven to 325°.

In a large saucepan, melt butter; add onion and celery and sauté until tender. Add bell pepper and sauté for 1 minute longer. Stir in flour until smooth. Gradually add half-and-half, stirring constantly. Add seasonings and salt, to taste. Continue cooking, stirring, until thickened. Add sliced potatoes and diced ham and stir to combine. Transfer mixture to the prepared baking dish. Cover tightly with foil and bake for 45 minutes. Remove foil and bake for about 10 minutes longer, or until potatoes are tender. If desired, sprinkle shredded cheese over the top of the casserole and bake for a few minutes longer, or until cheese is melted.
Serves 4 to 6.

I made this for my family using one cup soy milk and one cup soy cream. To compensate for the clumping ability of heavy cream, I included an extra tbsp of flour. It was very tasty! The recipe calls for ""salt, to taste,"" but it's really impossible to ""taste"" it until it's done. So I did not add any salt, figuring that I would salt it after it was finished. As it turned out, the ham brought plenty of salt to the dish, and no additional salt was needed.
