Instructions Checklist

  • Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion; cook and stir until starting to soften, 3 to 4 minutes. Sprinkle flour over onion and whisk together. Cook until golden brown, about 2 minutes. Stir in half-and-half and milk; whisk until thickened, 3 to 4 minutes more. Remove from heat; season sauce with salt and pepper. Add garlic powder, Worcestershire sauce, onion powder, and paprika.

  • Place half the sliced potatoes into the baking dish; top with half the chopped ham. Sprinkle half the Cheddar cheese and half the Monterey Jack cheese on top. Pour in half the sauce from the skillet. Repeat layering the remaining potatoes, ham, cheeses, and sauce, ending with a layer of cheese and sauce. Cover dish with aluminum foil.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 40 minutes. Remove the foil and bake until the cheese on top is golden and sauce is bubbling, 20 to 30 minutes more.

Cook's Note:

I used a mandoline to slice the potatoes.

I love loaded scalloped potatoes and have tried a few recipes and this is the best so far. I still found the sauce pretty bland. Read More

I followed the recipe as written and it turned out great, everyone enjoyed it. It didn't seem like much sauce before baking, I was nervous it would be too dry but it turned out perfect. Read More

I made half the recipe. Honestly this recipe is excellent as is. The only thing I had to adjust was the liquids because it needed a bit more so the sauce was enough. I didn't have Monterrey jack cheese so I used Gouda cheese I had on hand. This was excellent. Other than those two things which don't alter the recipe by much I recommend to follow the recipe as is.

Used leftover spiral ham. Added cayenne pepper for a kick. Didn't have half and half so I increased the butter by a tablespoon, added 2 additional tablespoons of flour. Used 1 1/2 cup of milk. This was so, so good. I'll make it when ever I have leftover ham. Read More

I love this recipe. I found that you need more than one dish for this recipe. So be prepared that you might want to have a back-up. Also, with the amount of ingredients I had, I could've doubled the sauce recipe easily and still would want more. The flavor is awesome. I will totally make this again. Read More

Partially boiled potatoes for less bake time and used cheese like velveeta to make it creamier. Everyone had seconds. Will make again! Read More

It tasted good albeit a bit bland. The potatoes were tender and cheesy. The sauce was extremely thick when made as is so I added a bit more milk to thin it a touch. I think next time I will add more ham and not dice it as small as I did. I was using this as a meal and not a side dish so I think it needed more ham. I would definitely try it again with more ham and a bit more spice. Read More
