Things You'll Need

  • 2 cups sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 2 onions, sliced
  • 2 cups cooked ham, diced
  • 3 pounds potatoes, peeled and sliced (about 8 to 10 potatoes)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, finely minced (optional)
  • 1 can (10.75 ounces) condensed mushroom soup
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper

Step 1: Peel, Slice and Grate

Prepare your ingredients: grate the cheese, slice the onions, dice the ham, peel and slice the potatoes and mince the parsley.

Tip

  • If you choose to begin with slicing the potatoes (in order to get this big job out of the way!), fill your bowl with water to keep the slices from turning brown.

Tip

  • A mandoline makes quick work of all the slicing required.

Step 4: Add the Milk Mixture

In a medium bowl, combine the mushroom soup, milk, salt, pepper, garlic salt and the parsley--except for about 1/8 teaspoon to sprinkle on top when the dish is finished.

Tip

  • Use the same onion, cheese and ham bowl if you like. It'll be empty by now and you'll save yourself from cleaning a bowl.

Pour the milk mixture over the top of your layered potatoes, ham, onions and cheese.

Step 6: Rest and Serve

The potatoes will be piping hot, so allow them to sit for at least 10 minutes before serving. This also gives all those juices one last chance to soak into the potatoes.
