Servings: 8 servings

- ½ cup Flour
- 1 ½ teaspoons Kosher Salt
- ½ teaspoon fresh ground Black Pepper
- 3 cups Milk
- 3 cups Ham (cubed)
- ½ cup shredded Cheddar Cheese
- 2 lbs Russet Potatoes (sliced ¼” thick)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Melt the butter in a large sauce pan on medium low heat and stir in flour to make a roux. Add salt and pepper and stir frequently to prevent burning. You will want to continue to cook the roux for 5 minutes to ensure the flour taste is cooked out of it.
Gradually start incorporating the milk. Stir in a little bit at a time to ensure it is fully blending with the roux.
Continue to cook the milk mixture until it thickens then add the chopped ham and cheese.
Pour this mixture over the sliced potatoes in a large bowl, toss to combine, and then add the scalloped potatoes to a 13x9 baking dish.
Cover the dish with foil and bake for 30 minutes and then continue to bake uncovered for an additional 45 minutes to allow the crust to form on top of the scalloped potatoes.
