Scalloped Potatoes and Ham


If any of you want to submit a recipe with a picture to me, I would love to post it on this blog.  I make a lot of the same foods over and over again, so finding a new delicious recipe is getting harder and harder.  Just send it to cabincountess@gmail.com

I made this recipe in my Pressure Cooker tonight but it could be made the same way and baked in the oven.  When I have made it in the oven, I just layer it in a casserole dish, and I heat the milk before I put it over the sliced potatoes, ham, flour and butter.  Bake covered for an hour until the potatoes are almost tender, then uncover to get the top browned slightly. 

Scalloped Potatoes and Ham

2 medium potatoes, sliced
3/4 cup of cubed ham (can be purchased already cubed)
Small onion either diced or sliced

Mix together 2 heaping Tablespoons of flour, 1/2 t. salt and 1/8 t. pepper

Spray a heat proof bowl or a metal bowl that will fit in the pressure cooker on a rack.

In that bowl layer sliced potatoes, ham and onion.  Sprinkle with 2 t. of flour mixture.  Put a couple pats of butter on flour.  Repeat the layers two more times.  Pour 3/4 cup of milk over the top.

Put 1 1/2 cups of water into the pressure cooker cooking pan.  Put the rack in and place the bowl on the rack.  Cover the bowl with foil.

Put the lid on the pressure cooker and cook on high for 20 minutes.  Let the pressure drop naturally
