Ingredients

  • 6 russet potatoes large, washed, peeled and cut into 1/2 inch cubes
  • 2 cups honey ham chopped into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 onion small, white or yellow, peeled and diced
  • 3 tablespoons salted butter
  • 3 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons spicy brown mustard
  • 3 cups milk
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup smoked gouda cheese shredded, divided
  • 1 cup New York cheddar cheese shredded, divided

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray generously with non stick spray or coat with butter. 
  • Prepare the potatoes, ham, onions and set aside. 
  • In a large sauce pot, melt the butter over medium heat. Whisk in the flour and brown mustard. Stir and cook until smooth and bubbly, about 3 minutes.
  • Gradually stir in the milk, whisking constantly until smooth. Stir in the salt and pepper. Heat to a low boil, and remove from heat.
  • Slowly add in 3/4 cup of the smoked gouda and 3/4 cup of the New York cheddar. Stir until the cheese has melted and the sauce is smooth.
  • In the prepared baking dish, arrange half of the potatoes, ham and onion. Cover with half of the cheese sauce. Repeat the layers of potatoes, ham, onion and cheese sauce.
  • Sprinkle the top with the remaining cheese. Cover with foil and bake for 1 - 1/2 hours until the potatoes are tender and cooked through. 
  • Remove foil and broil for 3 - 4 minutes until the top of the cheese is browned and bubbly.
