Reviews for Scalloped Potatoes 'n' Ham Casserole
"I used left over leg of lamb and it was awesome, about 4-4 1/2 cups. I cooked the potato mixture the first 40 min without the lamb meat and then I added it to finish up the cooking process. I didn't want the lamb to be over cooked and get dry and tough. If you like shepherd's pie this will be for you."
"DELICIOUS! I diced a whole sweet onion and sauteed it in the butter before adding the flour and paprika to the pan. I also layered thin slices of ham between the potato layers instead of diced ham. I sprinkled sharp white cheddar over top, and served the casserole with steamed asparagus and hot biscuits! This meal will be a regular on my menu!"
"They were very good. I added 1/2 tsp pepper and it was perfect."
"Made this for lunch today and it was yummy! I am lactose intolerant and this recipe uses non-dairy creamer instead of milk... we never missed the milk! DH can do dairy ok so the cheese put on the top at the end was only on half the pan. The cheese melts and browns but doesn't infiltrate the entire dish. That way he got his cheese and I got none. When I make it again I will do 3 to 4 cups of ham instead of two. We love the ham in this dish. BTW, we skipped the onion (DH can't handle it) and it was still fantastic."
"Was delicious needed 4 cups ham though 2 wasn't enough."
