Parmesan Scalloped Potato and Ham Stacks

Parmesan Scalloped Potatoes and Ham www.bellalimento.com
There are very few people I know that don’t like scalloped potatoes (and let’s just say we’re not close). Creamy soft potatoes swimming in a cheese sauce. Pass me the pan people. Carbs I love them. What can I say. I could eat them every day. Of course I’d probably have to eat them while walking on a treadmill if I did. Okay scratch that walking on a treadmill while eating is really not advisable, don’t ask me how I know. Sigh.

My friend Meredith posted her amazing Parmesan Potato Stacks a while ago. They’ve been duplicated many times and with good reason. They’re really GOOD and they look good. Turning scalloped potatoes  into individual stacks takes them from Tuesday night pork chops and potatoes dinner to the culinary prom if you will. We decided to make them a little more decadent because well we just can’t help ourselves. We’ve added Smithfield anytime favorites boneless SLICED ham.

“The legendary artisan taste of Smithfield now comes in over 20 delicious cuts and flavors—including sliced, cubes and steaks. That means you’ll get the perfect portion every time. Enhance your scrambled eggs with flavorful cubes, try some diced ham as part of a party appetizer or just enjoy some slices for a traditional dinner. Get a package today, and enjoy the flavor of Smithfield with breakfast, lunch or dinner.”

These individual stacks don’t take much longer than assembling them into a large dish would. We baked ours in aluminum muffin liners. You know how much I hate doing dishes and well we all know how you seriously have to soak most scalloped potato pans for practically a week to get that baked on goodness off and who has time for that. Use the liners.

Baci!

    You know I don’t know anyone in my sphere of influence who doesn’t like scalloped potatoes either. In fact I am fixing them for Easter. This is an unique treatment of that classic dish. However what I like and might end up ‘stealing’ is the sauce recipe. Wow that is rich and sooooo perfect.

    I could literally eat potatoes every day of the week. Truth. I can eat them raw or cooked, any ole way. But, when you go and scallop them and mix in Smithfield ham. WOWZA!
