This recipe has evolved over the past eight years. After I added the thyme, ham and sour cream, my husband declared, “This is it!” I like to serve this rich, saucy entree with a salad and homemade French bread. —Hope Toole, Muscle Shoals, Alabama

"This is a delicious dish and a great way to use up ham. It was very rich, but this is the type of dish that is supposed to be rich! I used yellow cheddar because I did not have white on hand but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. I served it with steamed broccoli and ended up mixing everything together to freshen the dish up a little bit."

"I made these potatoes at Easter and I was overwhelmed with compliments! Yes, it is fattening, but it is only once a year! Indulge- you will never make any other scalloped potatoes!"

"1star in order to ask a question. What's the difference between white and orange cheddar?"

"This was good. A little heavy but very good. I also made the Orange n Red Onion salad. It needed more vinegar for better balance."
