  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a 9x13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add sliced potatoes and cook until almost tender, 5 to 10 minutes. Transfer to a colander and rinse with cold water until cool enough to handle. Drain well.
  3. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion; cook and stir until tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in flour, Dijon mustard, salt, and pepper; cook for 1 minute. Gradually pour in milk, stirring constantly until sauce is thickened, about 5 minutes. Stir in Cheddar cheese until melted.
  4. Layer half of the potatoes in the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Top with 1 1/2 cup diced ham and half of the Cheddar cheese sauce. Repeat layering potatoes, ham, and sauce.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until the top is lightly browned, about 1 hour.

1.8.17 I should have followed my gut on this, but I hate to change a recipe, particularly when I’m the first to review it. I see absolutely no reason to parboil the potatoes in this recipe. ...

This will be my go to recipe for scalloped potatoes. I followed the recipe except I didn't have the mustard so I omitted that. I also didn't parboil the potatoes like another reviewer suggested....

I did read the reviews on this recipe. The only two things I did differently from the recipe were not parboiling the potatoes and no mustard (my husband is not a fan of mustard). I used Yukon ...

Loved it! I followed advise from other reviewers and did not boil potatos before hand. I sliced the potatoes very thin, added a pinch of cayenne pepper to sauce, increased temp to 375 and cook...

It was good. I would make it again. I think I would add more ham next time.

On a cold late fall day in Upstate NY, this recipe really hit the spot. I've been looking for a good recipe close to something my mother used to make. This recipe is the closest I've found to ...

Great recipe for leftover ham.

As a family, we all loved this. My cheese mixture ended up a little too thick so I had to add more milk. No need to boil the potatoes first. I tried making it a second time with bacon instead an...

Soooo yummy, used yellow potatoes and did not preboil them like other reviewers suggested. Next time I might add bacon!
