SCALLOPED POTATOES WITH HAM
Makes 4 Servings
1 Serving = 6 PointsPlus™
4 TBSP light butter, divided
1/2 tsp dried parsley flakes
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp dried thyme
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
2 cups fat-free milk
4 cups potatoes, peeled & thinly sliced
1 1/2 cups chopped cooked ham
1 small onion, finely chopped
Preheat oven to 375º. Lightly spray an 8 x 11” baking dish. Set aside.
In a medium saucepan, melt 3 TBSP butter. Stir in flour, parsley flakes, salt, thyme & pepper until smooth. Gradually add milk; bring to a boil. Cook & stir for 2 more minutes.
In a large bowl, combine potatoes, ham & onion.
Place half of this in a sprayed 8 x 11“baking dish. Top with half of the sauce. Repeat with remaining potatoes/ham/onion.
Cover & bake for 65 – 75 minutes or until potatoes are almost tender. Dot with remaining 1 TBSP butter. Bake, uncovered, 15 – 20 minutes longer or until potatoes are tender.
MY SPIN: I put more ground black pepper on this after pouring the milk sauce. For some reason, to me, scalloped potatoes should have lots of black pepper! Also, I would bake a little longer than the final 15 – 20 minutes so the potatoes get a little more of a golden color.
|My plate. I served this with fresh steamed broccoli.|
