Scalloped Potatoes with Ham

This recipe comes from the "Fix-it and Forget-it" Cookbook.

6 cups raw potatoes, cut into small cubes.
1 medium onion, minced
1 tsp. salt
1/2 lb. cooked ham, cubed
4 Tbsp butter
4 Tbsp flour
1 tsp. salt
2 cups milk
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese.

1. Layer potatoes, onion, 1 tsp. salt, and ham into slow cooker.
2. Melt butter in saucepan. Stir in flour and 1 tsp. salt. Cook until bubbly. Gradually add milk. Cook until smooth and thickened. Add cheese and stir until melted. Pour over potato-ham mixture, stirring lightly.
3. Cover. Cook on Low 6-7 hours, of High 3-4 hours.

Note: the edges and bottom of your crockpot will burn, but the innards are still very tasty. I just have to plan on soaking the crockpot overnight afterwards to clean it up. I'd welcome any ideas on getting it not to burn...


  1. Thanks Mary Jane, I'll give it a try.

  2. You could try lining your pot with foil- not sure but maybe that would do it for the burning problem.
