Cheesy Potato and Ham Bake

Cheesy Potato and Ham Bake


  • 5 large russet potatoes (sliced thin...but not shaved)
  • 1/2 cup Ham (cubed)
  • 1 Small Onion (sliced thin)
  • 1 cup Chicken broth
  • 1 Garlic Clove (minced)
  • 1 tablespoon Butter
  • 1/2 cup Half & Half
  • 1 cup Parmesan Cheese (grated)
  • 1 cup Sharp Cheddar Cheese (shredded)
  • Salt and Pepper (to taste)


Step 1
In a sauce pan, begin to steep your onions and garlic in chicken broth at a light boil. Take care not to boil over.
Step 2
After the broth has reduced, turn to a medium low heat and add in the Half & Half and the butter. Add Salt and Pepper to taste. Let simmer stirring occasionally.
Step 3
While your Sauce is simmering, thinly slice your ham and potatoes.
Step 4
Into a pie pan or casserole dish, layer first with potatoes, then half of your grated Parmesan cheese. Next, add your ham and top with the remaining Parmesan. Final layer should be potatoes.
Step 5
Pour your sauce over the potato, ham and cheese layers. Top with the Sharp Cheddar and bake at 350F for about 40 minutes or until the potatoes are cooked through.
Step 6
I like to serve this with a fresh sprinkling of Parmesan on each plate and fresh scallions.

About Shannon @VillageGirlBlog

With my Husband, we raise our two sons and a nephew, three dogs, a cat, four chickens and a large garden on my just under an acre lot in a small village in Southeast Michigan. I am passionate about real food, and eating as local as we can without giving up olive oil, coffee, you know the necessities. Herb gardens and backyard chickens, reading, writing, photography are my other passions. I believe that things will work out eventually, the glass is not only half full but it is refillable.
