This is one of our favorite ‘leftover ham’ dishes.
It’s ‘requested several times during the winter. If I don’t have leftover ham I buy a thick slice at the deli counter.
I’ve been making it for years, and yes, I posted the recipe in the very early years of this blog.
It’s worth another post.
It’s so easy – a bit of cutting and slicing, add flour and cover with milk and cheese.
An hour later a dinner, piping hot and creamy, pops out of the oven, ready to serve.
Scalloped Potatoes with Ham and Broccoli
Total time: 1 hour 10 minutes
- 2 medium potatoes, sliced 1/8 inch thick.
- 1/2 medium head broccoli, cut into small florets with stem
- 1 onion, quartered, then thinly sliced
- 8oz (240gr) baked ham, cut into pieces
- 1/3 cup flour
- 1 cup (8oz, 240ml) milk
- 1 tbs Dijon mustard
- 3/4 cup (3oz, 90gr) shredded cheese
- Put the broccoli, potatoes, onions and ham into a large bowl. Sprinkle with flour and toss to coat as evenly as possible.
- Put the whole lot into a large glass baking dish.
- Whisk the milk and mustard together and pour carefully over the top.
- Sprinkle with the cheese.
- Cover and bake at 400F (200C) for an hour or until the potatoes are done.
- Uncover for the last 10 minutes to brown the cheese. Serve.
Note: You could bake it in a slower oven for longer: 350F (175C) for 90 minutes, if that suits your schedule.
I don’t always look at all the statistics available about this blog.
Actually, I always look at the same few bits and rarely look at the rest.
Today, listed below ‘search terms’ (one I rarely look at) this caught my eye:
‘woman stretched on a rack being tickled’.
How did anyone end up on my innocent little food blog searching for that!
Then I remembered…..
A few summers ago, after spending the afternoon at one of the local medieval festivals, I posted a few photos – under the headline ‘Tilting and Torture in the Village‘.
This is one of the photos, along with the description:
“I don’t know what her crimes were but she was being subjected to the dreaded ‘feather’.
It was awful, watching this poor child (she was about 13) writhing and screaming on the rack while being expertly tickled with a pink feather.”
I wonder if this photo was what the ‘searcher’ was looking for…..
I wonder how many times people end up seeing this:
when they’re searching for ‘Nude Blondes in the sun’.
Blondes being the type of cows we have locally….
And they’re not wearing anything. That was another summer post.
A girl has to have some fun….
