I guess I've been making lots of comfort food lately. It's not because of cooler weather,either, as it's been absolutely gorgeous out. Brent and I have been taking advantage of it with long walks in the evenings. When fall hits, I just crave comfort food!
This is another dish we love. Basically its just the regular scalloped potato recipe with ham and cheese added. One recipe makes a few meals for us, and that's OK with us, as it's even better the next day.
It's so rich and creamy!

2 Tbsp. butter
