Slow cooker cheesy garlic scalloped potatoes with ham

Previous Entry Add to Memories Tell a Friend Next Entry
I basically smashed together bits from a few recipes with my general cooking knowledge for this one. We had half a bag of potatoes and some leftover ham to use up.

The amount of potatoes and ham are approximate; this filled a 6 quart slow cooker about half way.

7 medium potatoes, scrubbed or peeled as you wish, sliced about 1/8th inch thick
1 medium to large onion, sliced about 1/8th inch thick
1 pound cooked ham, cut into bite sized pieces

Butter your slow cooker crock or use non-stick spray. Layer 1/3rd of the potatoes, half the onion, and 1/3rd of the ham in the bottom of the crock, repeat, and then finish off with the last of the potatoes and ham.

Make the sauce:

1/4 c butter
3-5 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 c flour
1 & 1/2 c milk
1 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper (I use a five color mix and fresh grind it)
2 c shredded cheese (I used Colby Jack)

Melt the butter in a saucepan and add the minced garlic, stir until it is fragrant but not browned. Add the flour and stir until it makes a smooth paste. Whisk in the milk slowly to avoid lumps. Add salt and pepper and stir until thickened (it won't take long). Turn off heat and add the cheese, stir until melted and well incorporated. Pour garlic cheese sauce over the layered potatoes and ham, aiming for an even coating of the surface.

Cover and cook on low about 8 hours.
