Cheesy Scalloped Potato Casserole


  • 2 pounds baking potatoes peeled
  • 1/4 cup 1/2 stick butter
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Pinch of ground white pepper
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese divided
  • 8.5 oz can corn, drained
  • 1 lb precooked ham steak, cut into bite-size pieces


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease a shallow oblong baking dish.
  2. Thinly slice the potatoes into a large bowl.
  3. Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the flour, salt, and pepper. Add the milk all at once and cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens and bubbles. Remove from the heat and add 11/2 cups of the cheese, stirring until combined. Pour the mixture over the potatoes and lightly mix.
  4. Gently stir in the corn and ham. Spoon into the prepared dish.
  5. Cover with aluminum foil and bake about 1 hour or until the potatoes are tender. For a browned top, remove the foil about halfway through the baking time. At the end of the baking time, sprinkle the remaining 1/2 cup of cheese over the top. Bake a few more minutes until the cheese is melted.
