Scalloped Potatoes Recipe

Today I have for you nothing but a classic; scalloped potatoes. These have been around almost forever and chances are many of you have eaten them at least once. If you are not familiar with this dish scalloped potatoes are basically sliced potatoes with a creamy sauce that are baked. Scalloped potato recipes are usually with or without ham, this recipe uses ham. It also uses vegetables such as green peppers and onion. This can either be a side dish or can serve as a main course by itself. It is very filling but if you have a large family you might want to double the recipe. Try and slice the potatoes decently thin or they will take longer to cook. This recipe is very simple and the prep only takes about 20 minutes then the oven does the rest. During the last few minutes of baking, you can top the dish with cheddar cheese if desired. Enjoy.
