Scalloped Potatoes with Ham on plate

Here’s a recipe for scalloped potatoes that’s great when having friends or family over for dinner.

It not only tastes wonderful, it smells so good when it’s cooking too.

When having friends over for dinner it’s nice to have food in the oven or on the stove that makes the house smell delicious, and that the guests will smell the minute they walk in the door.

This recipe is definitely one of those.

It’s right on up there with fresh bread baking in the oven or my personal favorite recipes;  Spaghetti Sauce and Fried Chicken that smell like good old fashioned comfort food.

This scalloped potato recipe is great for using up leftover ham but feel free to use other types of leftover meat instead like leftover turkey.

Just shred the turkey up in small pieces and add alongside the ham or just by itself.

Here are more recipes using leftover ham you may like “Slow Cooker Split Pea and Ham Soup” and “Fried Potato, Ham and Spinach Breakfast Pie“.

Let’s check out the ingredients for these delicious scalloped potatoes.

TIP – It’s best to cut the potatoes just before putting them in the baking dish because they’ll turn a light orange color fairly quickly after cutting them. 

TIP – If the potatoes are cut ahead of time, they can be put in a bowl of water until just before use which should prevent the potatoes from turning color.
