Cheesy Ham & Potato Casserole

Yum
"I love casseroles, especially when there's a chill in the air.  This dish is so easy to put together and will warm you up from the inside out!"  

3 cups peeled and sliced red potatoes
2 cups cooked and chopped ham

Cheese Sauce
2 Tablespoons butter
2 Tablespoons flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground mustard
1-1/4 cups milk
3/4 cup cheese (I used a combination of 2 slices of American cheese and 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese.)

In a saucepan, melt butter.  Whisk in flour, salt, pepper and ground mustard.  Cook for 2 minutes.  Whisk in milk and continue to cook until thickened, stirring constantly.  Add cheese and stir until cheese is melted.

To Assemble Casserole:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease an 8-inch casserole dish.  Layer ingredients in the following order:  1/2 of potato slices, 1/2 of cheese sauce, all of the chopped ham, remaining potato slices and remaining cheese sauce.  Cover casserole dish with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes.  Remove foil and bake for an additional 30 minutes.  ENJOY!

  1. Suggest changing font used in the recipe. The 1-1/4 cups of milk looked like 4-1/4 cups. My 14 year-old thought it read 7-1/4 cups of milk.

    Needless to say, the sauce turned into broth with those proportions.
