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

This recipe was a definite winner for my family. When trying a new recipe, I always follow the recipe true to the recipe written. By doing it that way, my family helps me tweak it for next time. However, my family told me not to add or delete anything to this recipe. My daughter said it was as good as her grandmother's scalloped potatoes. Now that was a really hard thing for her to admit since no one cooked like her grandmother. So this family gives a strong high five and a little on the side to this recipe!

These potatoes are so tasty! I served them with Parmesan pork chops and dinner was a delight! I love the spices used; they really dress up scalloped potatoes.

My husband and I loved this dish! I made this into a brunch meal today and it was wonderful! I was out of ham so I cut up 6 slices of bacon in small pieces and fried and drained them.

And instead of adding the onion with the potatoes, I finely chopped some green onion along

with some finely chopped yellow onion and saluted it in the butter with the herbs before adding

the flour and milk. I sprinkled a shredded 3 cheese mixture on top when serving . And to go with

this dish I made my husband an omelet with cheese and crumbled sausage with green pepper

& onion. The two went together so husband said it was better than eating breakfast out!

Hands down the best scalloped potatoes and ham I've ever eaten. I didn't change anything but I will add more onion next time. There were no leftovers and I made an extra large batch! The family loved it. I will make it again soon.

Delish dish!!! Didn't have thyme, so I substituted basil. Also did not put additional butter on top, instead sprinkled with a little cheddar cheese. Hubby loved it. Will definitely make again!!!
