I happy to be the inaugural reviewer (and photo submitter) of this recipe and be able to give it such a glowing review! I've never really gotten the phrase "comfort food" before. I mean, I understand what it means/what it is, but nothing has ever really screamed COMFORT FOOD in my world. Until today. It's unseasonably cold and dreary and I could not wait to get home and taste this. It did not disappoint...."comfort food" popped into my head a first bite. I followed the recipe, though I did slightly increase everything to use potatoes and ham I had on hand. This will become a slow cooker staple in the LTH house. THANKS for the recipe, Jane! Read More

I didnt have the cream of tartar and I didnt need so much milk but overall this is an ok recipe. At the end I tasted it and added a big spoonful of reduced fat sour cream and some garlic salt and pepper. Read More

Made this for dinner. It was very hearty - comfort food is a great description for it. It could almost be served as a breakfast item. Yum! Read More

I added garlic salt since that's a favorite in my house. The potatoes cooked up just right. Read More

Will definitely make this again. A great meal with minimal time. I found the 9 hrs way too long - it was cooked to our satisfaction in 4 hours on low using the fully-cooked smoked ham. Also threw in a layer of sliced mushrooms a few cloves and a dash of Frank's HotSauce - I put that s t on everything. Gave it just the added kick. Read More

It was an easy fix with left over ham. I did just a couple things different. I melted 2 Tb butter and stirred in the flour, then the milk (I used almond), and stirred over medium heat until thickened. I also added Ranch dressing mix as someone else suggested. I used only 4 potatoes. I put it on high in the crockpot, but it was done in about three hours. It did not separate as a couple reviewers had problems with. Read More

I hate giving bad recipe reviews because I feel like taste is such a personal thing. However this recipe did not work for us at all. The sauce completely broke. We ended up with a soupy mix and it wasn't soupy in a good way. It didn't taste right either. I found it barely edible and I'll eat anything! For the amount of work that it took to make the milk sauce I really wanted it to work. I may have an issue with my crock pot getting too hot... since it worked for others (that still doesn't fix the taste issue) Read More

If you didn't like this you did it wrong. This was fabulous! maybe it was the ham quality. I didn't have cream of tartar so I skipped the water and tartar all together (water gets drained anyway). Great way to use up Easter ham. I don't measure anything but I used red potatoes a whole yellow onion and tons of chopped ham and whatever amount of cheddar I had on hand. The milk flour roux was perfect as well. I had creamy flavorful ham and scalloped potatoes. This was my first time ever making them and it was to die for! Read More
