Crock Pot Ham & Scalloped Potatoes

May I just say before I get started, that some Comfort Food is just plain UGLY.  It is.  I don’t think it can help it, its just when its all gooey and smooshy and delicious…it just is uglier than some other dishes.

  Even when I tried different plates, still ugly.

  • 2 teaspoons Salt
  • 1-½ teaspoon Fresh Ground Pepper
  • 3 cups Milk

1. Peel, slice and cut potatoes into 1/4th inch wide strips. Cube or shred ham. Set aside.
2. Melt butter in a large pan. Chop one onion and press 5 cloves of garlic. Sautee until soft and translucent.

  1. Hi friend! It’s not THAT ugly, BUT, what if you put it in a small bowl on a plate with your bread/other sides? I’m thinking kind of like Cracker Barrel or other meat – n – sides style places that serve anything with liquid or sauce in a separate semi-flat bowl. It might give a little more oomph and a little less spread to the dish.

    The thing about pretty food, though, is that it’s gonna be ugly just like the rest of it in a few hours… 🙂 Delicious food is always delicious!
