In my post of the Double Smoked Ham I did for Canadian Thanksgiving (http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/171111/double-smoked-ham-the-star-of-canadian-thanksgiving#post_1251346) I noted that I didn't go with the traditional turkey. So, I didn't go with the traditional mashed potatoes either. I did my favourite with ham, Scalloped potatoes.
I started by making a cheese sauce. I melted 1/4 cup of butter and added 1/4 cup of flour to make a roux. I added 1 7/8 cups of milk and stirred until thickened.
I added 1 cup of grated old cheddar, 1/4 cup grated parmesan, 3/4 teaspoon dry mustard, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper and 3 dashes of Tabasco.
I sliced 5-6 cups of potatoes, chopped 1 1/2 cup onions and cut 1/4 cup of butter.
I put 1/3 of the potatoes in a greased casserole. I put 1/3 of the onions over the potatoes. I dotted the surface with 1/3 of the butter and then poured 1/3 of the cheese sauce over the top. I repeated these layers twice. I put the casserole in a 350 F oven, covered for 1/2 an hour. Then I removed the lid and cooked for another hour. I tested the potatoes with a fork and gave them another 10 minutes and they were done. I let them sit for 10 minutes before serving.
I did a video of the project.
These are so good and cheesy. I just love them with ham.
