Ham and Potato Au Gratin Recipe:

Servings: 6-8


2 pounds potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced

1 1/2 cups cooked ham, diced

1 small onion, finely chopped

3 tablespoons butter

3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

2 cups milk

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

1/4 teaspoon paprika

1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese

1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese


Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C) and grease a 2-quart casserole dish.

Layer half the potatoes, ham, and onions in the dish, then repeat with the remaining halves.

Melt butter in a saucepan, stir in flour, and cook for a minute. Gradually add milk, simmer until thickened, and season with salt, pepper, and paprika.

Remove from heat, add cheddar, and pour over the layers.

Cover with foil and bake for 60 minutes. Uncover, add Parmesan, and bake for another 20-30 minutes until golden.

Let it cool slightly before serving.

Variations & Tips:

Add a pinch of cayenne or hot sauce for extra heat.

For a vegetarian version, replace ham with sautéed mushrooms and spinach.

This dish is great for leftovers and reheats well.

Experiment with different cheese blends for variety.

Use a mandoline slicer for evenly thin potato slices.

Enjoy making this delightful Ham and Potato Au Gratin, and let it fill your home with warmth and your meal with joy!”
