Scalloped Potatoes

Posted by Alison

So the question after every Christmas is what to do with all that leftover ham? Make Scalloped Potatoes of course! This is a recipe based on one from, but of course I think mine's better!

What do I need?
  • 20g butter
  • 1 onion, halved, thinly sliced
  • 1kg Desiree potatoes
  • 300ml milk
  • Sliced ham
How is it done?
  1. Preheat oven to 200°C. Lightly grease a 6cm deep, 15cm x 24cm (base) ovenproof dish.
  2. Melt butter in a frying pan over medium heat. Add onion. Cook for 4 minutes or until soft. Remove from heat. Set aside. Slice potatoes into 5mm-thick rounds. Pour cream into a jug. Add nutmeg, and salt and pepper. Whisk with a fork to combine.
  3. Arrange a layer of potatoes over base of prepared dish. Top with a layer of onion. Drizzle with a little cream mixture. Repeat layers until all ingredients have been used.
  4. Cover dish tightly with foil. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes or until potatoes are just tender. Remove foil. Cook for a further 30 minutes or until top is golden.

Tips and Tricks: Leave out the ham for a meatless option; sprinkle with cheese before baking for a cheesy option, yum!
