  1. This is a very appetizing way to cook potatoes, it looks amazing ^_^ Bye, have a great week

  2. I have a surprise for you in my blog :)
    Take care...

  3. i am embarrassed that I have never ever made scalloped potatoes. Obviously I do need to try it, since we are trying to stay away from the boxed stuff. This recipe does look quite unique and tasty. I like that it has ham in there as well as the cracker topping-yum!

  4. Potatoes, ham and cheese what a great combination of flavors. This sounds really good.

  5. One of my favorite combos. This looks amazing.

  6. I love scalloped potatoes - any which way, any cheeses, with or without ham - this just brightened my day!

  7. This looks just delicious!!!! Adding the ham is something new to me and I would not have thought of it. Will make this soon! Thank you.

  8. This looks great, we like the aged provolone for it.

  9. This sounds wonderful and with the addition of the crackers takes it over the top. This is definitely comfort food at its best.

  10. Love this with prosciutto Claudia - so yummy!
