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

"Delicious but it took longer to prep. Great way to use leftover ham."

"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!"
