  • 2 1/2 pounds russet potatoes sliced thin
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 onion diced small
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 cups cooked ham cubed
  • 2 cups cheddar cheese freshly grated


  • Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. Spray a 8 by 8 inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  • After peeling and slicing your potatoes put them in a large bowl and cover with chicken stock and heavy cream so they don't brown as you prepare the rest of the recipe.
  • Over medium heat in a large dutch oven, melt the butter. Add in the onion and cook until translucent, 5 to 7 minutes. Add in the garlic powder, salt, thyme, and black pepper.
  • Add the potatoes, cream, and stock to the dutch oven and bring to a simmer. Cover and cook for 10 minutes or until the potatoes are tender and can be sliced with a paring knife with little resistance. Stir in the ham and 1 cup of the cheddar cheese.
  • Transfer the potato mixture to the baking dish and smooth into an even layer. Top with the remaining cheddar cheese and bake for 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Let stand 10 minutes. Garnish with fresh parsley and serve.
