Broccoli Scalloped Potatoes Recipe

Broccoli Scalloped Potatoes Recipe

The combination of ham and cheese creates a wonderfully smoky flavor. I also love that I can cook an entire meal—vegetable and all—in one standout dish. —Denell Syslo, Fullerton, Nebraska
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 1 hour YIELD:8 servings


  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 2 tablespoons chopped onion
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 5 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2-1/2 cups whole milk
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded Swiss cheese, divided
  • 2 pounds potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced (about 4 cups)
  • 2 cups julienned fully cooked ham
  • 2 cups frozen broccoli florets, thawed and patted dry


  • 1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a Dutch oven, heat butter over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic; cook and stir 2-3 minutes or until tender. Stir in flour, white pepper and salt until blended; gradually whisk in milk. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly; cook and stir 2 minutes or until thickened.
  • 2. Stir in 1 cup cheese. Reduce heat; cook 1-2 minutes or until cheese is melted (sauce will be thick). Remove from heat.
  • 3. Add potatoes, ham and broccoli to sauce; stir gently to coat. Transfer to eight greased 8-oz. ramekins.
  • 4. Bake, covered, 40 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake, uncovered, 20-25 minutes longer or until potatoes are tender and cheese is melted. Yield: 8 servings.

"The Recipe was great as is, but I changed it up a little and loved it even more. I didn't have enough Swiss cheese so I used 1 1/4 cup of Swiss cheese and the other 3/4 cup of Asiago cheese. I feel like this gave it a stronger cheese flavor and complimented the other ingredients substantially. Thank you for the recipe :-)"

"5 stars because would be equally good as written. To fit my current cravings I added a diced jalapeo before baking and served steamed fresh broccoli on the side. Prep super easy with food processor. I don't have that size ramakins so I just put it in a casserole dish. Can't stop eating it"

"Great combination & loved having them in the individual serving dishes. Please could nutritional values be added as some of us are diabetic, on weight loss plans, etc & the values would be extremely helpful. Thank you"

"First time writing a review. Was halving it, just for the two of us. Have no individual ramekins so I put it all in one dish and wondered about it possibly needing longer baking time. Recipe says sauce will be thick. Believe it! Was so thick I couldn't stir everything together so I added some milk. Mistake! After baking for 40 minutes it was like soup., so I shook up some flour/water and stirred it in. Came out okay. Also had a small head of fresh broccoli in the fridge (we prefer fresh over frozen). It cooked to mush, even the stalks. It was good and hubby loved the meal. Not sure how to handle it next time. Stir the broccoli in after 20 minutes of baking? Swiss cheese goes naturally with ham and is a great change from all those dishes doused with cheddar.

Be took longer than 20 minutes for the prep."

"This has potential, it's bland as written. I would change the amount of onion first by increasing it to a whole chopped onion. Then I would increase the amount of pepper up to 1/2 tsp. Then I would add about 1 tsp. thyme. I will make this again but keep trying different things to make it more flavorful."

"Great recipe, I omitted the ham, and used as a vegeterian recipe. I have shared this recipe with many friends. Loved it. Have made many times... First casserole dish to be emptied.. at potlucks.. I usually double the recipe. If you have a mandoline, prep time is less then 20 minutes."

"I made this for a large potluck and got rave reviews! I tripled the sauce (I like things saucy) using about 4 cups of swiss in the sauce and 2 cups sprinkled on at the end. I doubled the potatoes (4 lb) and added more broccoli (about 3 med. heads). I omitted the ham as ham was going to be served at the dinner. For the size I made, I baked it for 3 hours and it turned out perfect. I will make this again for sure, I had at least 4 request for the recipe, and more compliments than I ever expected. Yumm"
