Ham and Scalloped Potatoes in a Slow Cooker

I’ll admit, the broccoli smell is strong and it doesn’t look as pretty as a dish of scalloped potatoes. But what it lacks in presentation, it makes up for in amazing taste. Perfectly satisfying for a cold day!

Ingredients

  • 2 ½ cups cubed ham (I prefer to buy pre-diced with no nitrates- it’s a 12 oz package)
  • 3 potatoes cut into ¼ inch round slices*
  • 1 can of cream of potato soup** (I’ve used cream of celery and cream of chicken too and it tasted great)
  • 1 can of water
  • 2 cups of broccoli
  • ½ cup of shredded cheddar cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Directions

  • Mix all ingredients into slow cooker
  • Cook on low for 8 hours

*Potatoes can turn black if they are frozen (appetizing, I know!). If you are making this for freezer meals, this adds an extra step. To prevent your potatoes from turning black, after slicing, blanch potatoes for 4-5 minutes and then immediately put them into an ice water bath. Wait until they cook down to add to your recipe. It’s worth the extra step, I promise.

**Cream of anything tends to be loaded with extra ingredients that I can’t pronounce. At the very least, try to find one without MSG.
