Scalloped Potatoes and Ham

Happy Hump Day! Each week I try to get a dinner request from Ron so I can put something on the table that is "tacky to his taste", as my Mom would say. Last week Ron requested scalloped potatoes and ham. I recently purchased a new cookbook from Taste of Home, and asked him to pick a recipe and buy the ingredients. He did hit the nail on the head with his pick! This recipe was delicious! I was originally wanted to make the traditional style, sans cheese (the horror, the horror!), but this was awesome. A perfect comfort dish to go with the raining days in Green Bay, Wisconsin. Enjoy!
Scalloped Potatoes and Ham
Recipe by Taste of Home: The Ultimate Casserole Cookbook

4 Tbl butter
4 tsp all purpose flour (we use gluten free)
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
Dash of cajun seasoning
1 cup 2% milk
3 tsp chicken stock
2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 cup shredded reduced fat cheddar cheese
5 cups thinly sliced red potatoes
2 cups cooked ham
1/2 cup thinly sliced onion

Instructions
In a small sauce pan, melt butter. Stir in flour, salt, pepper, and cajun seasoning until smooth. Gradually add milk, chicken stock, and Worcestershire sauce. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1 1/2-2 minutes or until thickened. Reduce heat; stir in 1/2 cup cheese. Remove from heat and set aside.

Place half of the potatoes sliced in a greased (I used PAM) backing dish (I used a large round corningwear). Layer with ham, onion, and half of the white sauce. Repeat layers. Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour and fifteen minutes, or until potatoes are tender. Uncover and sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake 10 minutes longer, or until cheese is melted.

Serves 4-5
