Cheesy Scalloped Potato, Broccoli and Ham Casserole




IMG_6897

I know that “Healthy” and “Cheesy” don’t usually go together, but trust me, these do. Plus, veggies, which I’ve been trying to eat in some capacity at every meal. This winter has been unbelievably cold and snowy, and we’ve made some stick-to-your-ribs meals that come together pretty easily, warm you up really well and leave enough for lunch the next day, too. Here’s one of them.

  • 2 cups fully cooked, diced ham
  • 2 lbs. potatoes, washed, peeled and sliced very thin (a mandoline helps a lot – just be careful!)
  • 2 heads broccoli, washed and cut into florets
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1/4 vidalia onion, diced
  • 2 tbsp. butter
  • 5 tbsp. flour
  • 2 cups grated cheddar, or cheese of choice
  • 1 cup 2% milk
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 2 pinches nutmeg
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp. white pepper

1. Heat the oven to 375.

2. In a French oven, heat butter over medium-high heat. Add the onion and garlic, stir, then cook until translucent, approx. 4-5 minutes.
