  • 2 cups diced ham
  • 6 cups russet potatoes scrubbed and sliced into 1/4 inch rounds
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 2 cup milk
  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease a 2 1/2 quart baking dish.
  • Layer half the potatoes in the baking dish and top with 1 cup diced ham. Repeat layers.
  • Heat the butter over medium heat until melted, whisk in the flour and cook for 1 minutes. Slowly whisk in milk, salt, garlic powder, and onion powder and cook until milk is just about boiling. Whisk in the cheese until melted. Remove from heat.
  • Pour the cheese sauce over the ham and potatoes. Sprinkle with paprika. Cover with foil and bake for 60 minutes. Remove foil and bake for an additional 25 minutes or until potatoes are tender.


If you are using a very salty or smoked ham, decrease the amount of salt to 1/2 teaspoon.
