This dish is a crowd-pleaser with its creamy sauce, chunks of ham and potato slices. I always enjoyed it when Mother made it. I added the parsley and the thyme, and now my husband and five children request it. —Wendy Rhoades, Yacolt, Washington

"I remembered my grandmother making this after a ham dinner around the holidays so I had to go for it and I don't even like to cook. It sure was a cross pleaser even with my picky granddaughters."

"This recipe is my "go-to" when i want to make something that everyone will love. Every single person who I serve it to has seconds or thirds. I have to make two casseroles at a time, and those are gone in less than two days. Great way to use leftover ham! Definitely takes longer than 15 min to prep, since you have to peel and scallop the potatoes!"

"I tried this last night and it was good but mine came very liquidy not like the picture shows. I followed the ingredients but used whole milk instead of 2%. I had to drain some of the juice. Don't know why."

"Every time I make this - it has a fishy taste to me. I think it's the thyme. Planning on tweaking it quite a bit next time I make it: getting rid of thyme, adding chives instead of parsley (for color and flavor), adding more salt possibly by replacing a cup of milk with a can of cream soup and adding shredded cheese to the mix. Whoever likes this recipe must really love fish!"

"This is the first recipe my husband asked me not to cook again...never. Some of the potatoes weren't cooked through. We actually picked out the ham to eat and threw the rest out."

"Amazing flavor and very kid friendly after I omitted the onions. Will definitely make again when I'm in a punch to feed a bunch of hungry kids!"
