Ham and Potatoes Au Gratin Recipe

This is one of the dishes Grandma served to our family during the holidays. Now, when the family gathers and I prepare this for my grandchildren, memories of those special times at Grandma's house fill my mind. I usually double this recipe, because the leftovers are fabulous when warmed in the microwave.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 35 min. YIELD:2 servings


  • 2 cups sliced peeled potatoes, cooked
  • 1 cup diced cooked ham
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped onion
  • 1/3 cup butter, cubed
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 cups milk
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • Dash white pepper
  • Minced fresh parsley


  • 1. In a greased 1-qt. baking dish, combine potatoes, ham and onion; set aside.
  • 2. In a saucepan, melt butter over medium heat; stir in flour until smooth. Gradually add milk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until mixture is thickened and bubbly. Add cheese, salt and pepper; stir until the cheese is melted. Pour over potato mixture and stir gently to mix.
  • 3. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until bubbly. Garnish with parsley. Yield: 2 servings.
