Ham and Potatoes Au Gratin Recipe

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

Ingredients

  • 2 cups sliced peeled potatoes, cooked
  • 1 cup diced cooked ham
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped onion

  • 1-1/2 cups milk
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
