Crockpot Scalloped Potatoes and Ham

Another awesome recipe found at:

1/2 - 1 lbs of cubed, cooked ham

6-8 raw potatoes, sliced

1 C onion, chopped (divided)
1 C grated cheddar cheese
1 C grated mozzarella cheese

1 T olive oil (or butter)
1/2 C chicken broth
1/2 C milk
1 T cornstarch

In a saucepan, saute 1/2 C onions in 1 T oil or butter until onions are translucent (about 5 minutes). Add chicken broth and heat to boiling. Mix 1/2 c milk with cornstarch until well mixed, and add to the boiling mixture, stirring frequently until thick (about 1 minute). Season with salt and pepper, if desired. Set aside.
(You could also used a can of cream of chicken or mushroom soup and skip this step)

Put half of the ham, potatoes and onions in a crock pot. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and half of both cheeses.

Repeat layers. Spread home-made cream soup (or can) over the top, completely covering the potatoes.

Cover and cook on low for 8 hours or until potatoes are tender.

***The flavor was delicious!!! I ended up slicing the potatoes the night before and placing them in water in the fridge. This made the whole thing a little more liquidy than normal. But, it was convenient! Next time, I will make sure to slice right before putting them in the crockpot. Definitely will make again!***
