Ham and Potatoe Dish

16 Sep

Hello everyone,

I made up this recipe last night and my husband loved it. Now, I know it’s not for everyone, anyone on a diet or anyone that has dairy allergies better stay away from it!! I don’t normally make potatoes this way, I just wanted to use up some ingredient’s in the refrigerator. Enjoy!!

Ham and Potato Dish

8 medium potatoes, peeled and slice paper-thin.

4 cloves garlic, minced

5 green onions, minced

2 springs fresh rosemary, minced

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

1/2 lb. smoked ham, chopped

2-1/4 cups heavy cream

2 cups shredded cheese, your choice..

Butter a 9-inch square deep-dish glass pan. Heat oven to 400 degrees. First layer 3 potatoes on bottom on pan, sprinkle with salt, pepper, onion, garlic, and rosemary. Last layer on some of the ham, repeat until all the potatoes, ham, garlic, and rosemary are used up. Lightly salt and pepper each layer (optional). Pour heavy cream over entire dish tapping pan on counter lightly to get the cream evenly distributed over mixture. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for about 2 hours until potatoes are very tender. In the last 15 minutes of baking, cover top with cheese and let it melt and get crispy on the edges. Let dish rest for 15 minutes, give it time to set… Enjoy everyone!!

I have a VA cake to get baked today and Ray is going to deliver it on Saturday. The vet likes airplanes, so I’ll be using the cross pan to make a plane. It’s one I saw on Wilton’s webpage and have been wanting to make for a while. My mom has an airplane cake pan, but they are out-of-town and I don’t want to use it anyway. I want to try this other one and see how it works out.  I am feeling a bit better, the steroids are giving me a buzz all the time.. Which is ok when I want to get stuff done around the house, but it doesn’t help me sleep at all. Right now I feel kinda weird, because I had to take a pain pill. On Tuesday Ray took me to the ER late that night, I can’t tell between my lung pain and a heart attack. I am waiting to hear from a cardiologist to see what they would like to do.. So for right now I’m just trying to stay calm and away from my family. I talked to my mom awhile ago, and all the same family crap, she thinks I don’t know what all goes on, but I do. I told her to stop underestimating me and what I know!! It pisses me off when she does that!!! I finally had to tell her I needed to go take a nap, my stomach is hurting, which is true right now… 

Well goodbye for now!!

Happy baking and cooking everyone!!! 🙂
