Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Melt butter in a 10-inch skillet over medium heat. Add onions and saute until soft, about 4 minutes. Remove from heat. Peel and thinly slice potatoes. Place a layer of potato slices in the bottom of 4-qt. casserole dish. Add about one-third of the butter onion mixture, 4 oz. of ham. Sprinkle liberally with salt and pepper. Continue to repeat this step for three additional layers with no onion butter mixture on top level, and sprinkle salt and pepper on each layer. Add milk to dish. Place casserole in oven and bake for 1 hour. Remove and add cheese to top of casserole and bake for additional 15 minutes or until cheese begins to brown. Remove from oven and allow to “rest” at least 10 minutes before serving.

  • I made this yesterday and was disappointed in the final results. It was very runny. It's almost like scalloped potatoes with ham and to that end, if I ever make it again, I will use a thickening agent to make it less runny. It also didn't have a lot of taste according to my husband. I will try to jazz it up a little next time, but I'm not quite sure how just yet.

  • Just made this today again and it is soooo very easy and so very good. I make a few slight changes sometimes, maybe a different cheese or if I can find them, Yukon Gold potatoes...... but this original is fabulous.

  • I am definitely going to make this sometime soon. My two favorite foods, so why I have never made this before is beyond me. Sounds wonderful.
