I added sharp cheddar cheese and I didn’t put thyme in because if you are of a European descent, thyme has a soapy taste to it. It’s just a part of genetics! ????

I followed the recipe but I also added 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese which I sprinkled over the middle layer and the top layer. I also used two cups of milk instead of 3 because I didn't read the directions correctly; it still turned out amazing!

This was delicious. I skipped the thyme as I am not a fan. I also cut back on the onion as we are not onion lovers either. My daughter was not enthused but ended up having two helpings as did my son-in-law. I think it would feed more than 4. We have hearty appetites, and had plenty left over.

Perfect the way it is. My husband said it was just like his mom made!

This dish is so very good. My daughter gifted me some Vasina Rossa Truffle & Salt that I used for the salt called for in the recipe. The added flavor was subtle but was very enjoyable.

Good comfort food recipe. Only 4 stars because of the nutritional info. Recipe says 4 servings. There are about 9 cups of ingredients and nutritional info is for 1 cup?

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!

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