Classic scalloped potatoes and ham casserole

We have tried a variety of scalloped potatoes recipes, and by far, this is the best one out there.  The flavors meld together making it that perfect side dish that you just can’t get enough of.  In fact, if you decide to add diced ham to the recipe, it will be the best casserole dish in your recipe book.

Honestly, who needs that $1.00 box mix of scalloped potatoes? I know in our family, that little of a serving wouldn’t feed two of the kids, and who knows what kind of preservatives that they have added to that box to allow it to sit in the grocery store or your pantry for months.  Buying a 10lb bag of potatoes is very economical, and if you are lucky enough to grow and store your own, this dish costs only a few cents per serving.

Enjoy the satisfaction of serving up a home-made dish that is simple and delicious with the ones you love!
