Scalloped Potatoes with Sage and Ham

A comfort food crowd-pleaser.

Scalloped-potatoes-with-sage-and-ham

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 soooo good when it’s cooking too.

When I have friends over for dinner I try 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 and turkey you may like “Slow Cooker Split Pea and Ham Soup“, Fried Potato, Ham and Spinach Breakfast Pie“, “Turkey Egg Rolls“, and “Barbecue Turkey Flatbread Pizza“.

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

With the skin on, cut the potatoes into about ¼ inch thick slices.

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.

  1. Nancy, I couldn’t agree with you more!! I love to greet my guests with great smelling food when they walk in the door!! I have been looking for a scalloped potato recipe with a little extra twist. Thank you!! My kids will love this 🙂

  2. Awesome! That looks so good! I really do love all of your pictures! What kind of camera do you have? I’ve been looking for a new one, and was wondering what brand you use.

    • Hi Amy, thank you very much for your kind words. I use a Canon Rebel EOS T3. But you know what I think has really helped with the vibrant color and close up shots is the lense I use which is a Canon 60mm. I just love that lense. I haven’t taken photography classes before so I’m still learning how to use the camera in different light. My favorite time to shot the pictures is late afternoon. Let me know if you have any questions. Have a great day!

    • Thank you! I’ll have to look into that. I took a summer course for photography a few years ago while finishing college, but i never got the camera I wanted. And I’ve got an Amazon gift card just waiting to be used on something good! Thanks again!

    • Hi Amy, you’re very welcome. And thank you so much for stopping by!
