Margene's Scalloped Potatoes and Ham
1/2 c. onion, chopped
1/4 c. butter
1/4 c. flour
2 c. milk
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
2 Tbsp. chopped parsley (1 Tbsp. dried)
1 qt. cubed, cooked potatoes (4 c.)
1 c. shredded cheddar cheese (I use medium cheddar)
1.5-2 c. ham, cubed
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Cook onion in butter until golden and translucent.
Blend in flour.
Take off heat, so as not to burn. Then put back on stove when adding the milk.
Gradually add milk to make a white sauce. Heat until it thickens, stirring constantly. (Make sure it thickens here in the pot, because it won't in the oven later.)
Add salt, pepper, cheese & parsley.
Put 2-3 spoonfuls of sauce in a 2-qt casserole dish, then layer 1/2 of the potatoes and 1/2 the ham. Pour in 1/2 of the remaining sauce, the remaining potatoes and ham, then finish with the rest of the sauce.
Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. (You may want to protect your oven, it often will boil over.)
