I had some ham in the refrigerator that needed to get used….so what do I make? Scalloped potatoes and ham.
My recipe came from the crock pot recipe book that came with my crock pot. The one you see below is actually a thrift store find. My original has long since discinagated.
I chuckle when I see this recipe…Note that the owner of the cook book before me wrote, “Boys don’t care for. 10-8-91” Well on the left I wrote “GREAT”. I really think it’s a good recipe. Try it yourself and see what you think.
Over time I’ve skipped a few steps and added some.
I spray my pot with cooking spray. I don’t for the most part follow the amounts. I do whatever I the ingredients and the amount of people eating calls for. I do not bother with putting the potatoes in Cream of Tarter.
I fill the crock pot half full of peeled sliced potatoes. Layer on half of a chopped onion on it. Layer cubed ham over it…if you are having this as your main course add extra ham…if it’s a side dish, add less ham.
Layer more sliced potatoes over the top of the ham. Add salt and pepper to your liking.
Put two cans of cream chicken (or mushroom or celery) over the potatoes. Put a cup of cheese on top of that.
Let it cook in the crock pot on high for about 4 hours or until the potatoes are tender. Stir and serve.
I’ve tried to convert this over to the instant pot….it wasn’t as good. I tried using the crock pot function on the instant pot…I didn’t like that either. This recipe is one of the reasons I still keep a crock pot around. It’s a standard recipe at out house. I often make it for a pot luck.
Here’s how they look all finished. This is Hubby’s plate. There were left over ribs so he had ribs with his.
Give it a try and let me know if you think great or if you’re like the original owner of the recipe book and “don’t care for it”. Honestly, I think, it’s good hearty food.
