I can’t even believe that I am blogging this, but I made scalloped potatoes and ham for dinner. The reason I say this is because I do not like scalloped potatoes and ham. I am not a fan at ALL of white creamy sauces. I don’t like cream of anything soups, white gravy, or (and yes, I’ll pause for the collective gasp after I say this) alfredo sauce. But…this recipe and dinner tonight was AMAZING. And easy. And only roughly 500 calories a serving.
Here’s the recipe:
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons flour
2 cups nonfat milk
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
8 cups chopped and peeled potatoes
4 cups chopped ham (I used leftover Honeybaked spiral ham from Christmas that I had in my freezer)
1 teaspoon pepper
2 cups shredded cheese
Brown butter in large nonstick skillet, add flour and mix into a rue and let get brown, but make sure it doesn’t burn. Add milk, stirring and bring to a rolling boil. Add onion and garlic powder and pepper. Stir. Add potatoes and bring back to a boil. Add ham and 1/2 of the shredded cheese, mix well. Spray a 9×13 inch baking dish with cooking spray. Dump everything from skillet into baking dish and sprinkle the remaining cheese on top. Cover with foil and bake at 375 degrees for about 45 minutes. Remove foil and continue to bake another 30 minutes or until bubbly, thickened and looking incredibly yummy.
I served mine with just a sprinkle of parmesan cheese. Oooh so yummy.
