This is and old family favourite, I have tried it with various types of canned soup, but always found that the two types in the recipe went down best with our lads.
Crock Pot Scalloped Potatoes and Ham
2 lbs potatoes, thinly sliced 2 cups diced ham 4 Tbsp. butter 1 small chopped onion 1 can cream of mushroom soup or cream of celery soup ¼ cup flour salt and pepper to taste basil to taste, optional 2 cups grated cheddar or mozzarella cheese
Place half of the potatoes and ham in a lightly greased crock pot. Top with half of the onions, flour and spices. Add remaining potatoes, ham and onions, then sprinkle on the remaining flour. Dot the top with butter then pour the cream of mushroom soup over the top, do not stir. Sprinkle some bruised/torn basil on top of servings, although this may seem a bit chefy, I do like the appearance and the lift from the basil.
Cover and cook on low for 7 to 9 hours. About 30 minutes before serving, sprinkle the grated cheese on top.
If you want to spin this dish out a little, you could add frozen peas and or carrots to the layers.
I want to encourage youngsters (male or female) to get into the kitchen and enjoy cooking. TASTE it!
