We have been making this Easy Scalloped Potatoes and Ham Recipe in my family for as long as I can remember. I used leftover ham from the holidays that I had in the freezer and sliced it in the food processor. Easy Scalloped Potatoes and Ham Recipe HERO shot

How to make my Easy Scalloped Potatoes and Ham Recipe

Process onions and the ham in a food processor using the slicing blade.

Food processor with onions and ham

Add the onions and ham to washed and peeled potatoes that you have processed previously in the same manner.

Stirring together the potatoes and ham mixture

Have your remaining ingredients ready. These include salt, pepper, butter (cut into pieces), flour and milk (or heavy cream).

Ingredients for Easy Scalloped Potatoes and Ham Recipe

Layer potato/onoion/ham mixture first and add some of the salt and pepper.

Pinch of salt and pepper

Sprinkle some of the flour over that.

Adding flour to thicken

Add dabs of some of the butter around this layer.

Repeat these layers until you have used all of the ingredients.

Adding dabs of butter on top

Top with remaining butter, salt and pepper.

Then, add milk (or heavy cream) and press (not stir) the potatoes so they are coated. I do this a few times during the cooking process as well so the top layer of potatoes doesn’t dry out or burn.

Adding milk and cream

When nearly all of the liquid has absorbed and the potatoes are tender and golden, you are done! This took about 75 minutes for me.


Allow the potatoes to cool for a few minutes prior to serving.
