When potatoes are dressed like way, I just cannot resist eating them.

Put this recipe on paper.

When you combine the sturdiness of ham with the tenderness of scalloped potatoes, a certain coziness permeates the kitchen. The classic Midwestern side dish of scalloped potatoes and ham has been enjoyed for many years. This recipe sprang from an old practice of finding tasty ways to use up leftovers, which had its origins in pragmatism and the necessity to provide substantial meals for a family. If you’re looking for something to eat on a day when the wind is howling outside and all you want is a hearty, home-cooked supper, this is the way to go.

A refreshing green salad or steaming green beans may lighten up this hearty dish, which can stand on its own. Sop up all that creamy sauce with some warm biscuits or handmade toast.
