This homey casserole is made from scratch and is ridiculously delicious! It is easy to prepare and classic comfort food. A crowd-friendly side dish and satisfying as a standalone main, too.


4 tablespoons butter

4 tablespoons flour

3 cup milk

salt and pepper

1 tablespoons butter (for sauteed onions)

3 medium onions (thinly sliced)

8 medium peeled and thinly sliced Russett potatoes

24 oz sliced ham (2 ham steaks cubed)

4 cups freshly grated mild cheddar

How to Make Homemade Ham and Scalloped Potatoes

Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 350 degrees.

Step 2: Then, butter a deep 9 x 13-inch baking pan.

Step 3: Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Once melted, stir in the flour and continue cooking for a minute.

Step 4: After a minute, remove the pan from the heat and whisk in the milk. Return the pan to the heat and let the mixture simmer while stirring.

Step 5: Once the sauce thickened, remove the pan from the heat and season with salt and pepper. Set aside.

Step 6: Meanwhile, cook the onions in a skillet with melted butter until golden brown. Sprinkle some salt and pepper to taste.

Step 7: Spoon 1/3 of the white sauce in the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Spread the white sauce and top with half of the potatoes. Place half of the onions, ham, cheese, and 1/3 of the sauce on top. Spread and season with salt and pepper.

Step 8: Do the same layering for the rest of the ingredients ending with the cheese on top.

Step 9: Place inside the preheated oven and bake for 45 minutes or until golden and bubbly.

Step 10: Once done, remove from the oven and let it sit for at least 10 to 15 minutes so the sauce will thicken.

NOTE: I’d like to freshly grate the cheese for hot dishes because already shredded cheeses normally add a wax-like film, hence disturbing proper melting.

How to make Easy Slow Cooker Taco Pasta

Step 1: Add the beef in a heated large skillet. Season with salt and pepper, then cook over medium-high heat, stirring often until the beef is browned. Place the cooked beef in a slow cooker.

Step 2: Add in the bell pepper, crushed tomatoes, salsa, corn, taco seasoning, and broth or water. Stir to combine.

Step 3: Cook for 5 to 6 hours on low or 2 to 3 hours on high.

Step 4: Add the pasta into the slow cooker and stir. Continue to cook for 10 to 20 minutes more on high. Cooking time will vary depending on the slow cooker so make sure to check for doneness at 10 minutes.

Step 5: At the end, stir in the cheddar cheese.

Step 6: Serve immediately. Enjoy!
