  1. Place the bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until slices begin to brown, about 5 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on a paper towel-lined plate.
  2. Transfer partially cooked bacon to the bottom of a large roasting pan.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  4. Whisk milk and flour together in a bowl; set aside.
  5. Layer about one-third of the potatoes over the bacon, followed by half the onion and half the ham.
  6. Scatter one-fourth of the Cheddar cheese atop the ham.
  7. Pour one-third of the milk mixture over the cheese and season with salt and black pepper.
  8. Repeat the layers of potato, onion, ham, Cheddar Cheese, milk mixture, salt, and black pepper.
  9. Arrange the final third of potatoes in the roasting pan; pour remaining milk mixture on top.
  10. Scatter the remaining Cheddar cheese over the potato mixture.
  11. Cover roasting pan with aluminum foil.
  12. Bake in the preheated oven until potatoes are tender, about 2 hours.

Very good flavor and texture. I cut the recipe in half and shorten the cooking time by a half hour. We enjoyed this dish a great deal. I will make it again.

I ended up with a dry and undercooked dish.

I would have given this five stars, but after reading some of the reviewer's suggestions, I used their advice and so the four stars is due to making the changes. I tripled the milk and flour (using heavy cream instead of milk), and reduced the salt and pepper ( just sprinkling some on each layer- so maybe 1 tsp. each in total.) I used Kirkland bacon bits instead of frying up bacon, but other than those adjustments stuck to the original. It had wonderful flavor, creamy and rich with just enough sauce( I can see why people commented about it being dry and needing more liquid, so that is why I tripled it- thanks for the heads up!. The salty, smoky taste of the ham and bacon were a delightful addition to the potatoes and this is high comfort food. I will make this again- very good!

The only thing I did different is instead of cubing the ham I put it thru the food processor. You get ham in every bite and it seems to flavor the potatoes even better. I tried it both ways but processing the ham is the best way. I also do the ham this way for ham and bean soup.

OMG This was great. I did triple the milk and flour and used 10- 12 potatoes. I did need to cook the whole two hours plus I left it in the oven with the heat turned off. It will be great for Christmas tomorrow. :)))))))

This recipe has a lot of promise but 2 tablespoons of salt and 2 tablespoons of pepper is a lot of spice for 10 potatoes. Also, as another mentioned, there is no way you can cook this for 2 hours and use only 2/3 cup of liquid with a thickener. My first attempt at this recipe was far too salty for us to enjoy but we used milk to reheat the next day and that helped make it more edible. I also used 4 - 4-1/2 cups milk with appropriate amount of flour. So anyhow, next time I will use only 2 teaspoons of salt, 1/2 pepper and more milk with less flour. I may try parboiling the potatoes to quicken the cooking time as well. It's a great recipe otherwise. The flavor was fantastic once we got past the salt. The simplicity was appreciated.

I didn't use the Bacon, used a smaller batch as well but all turned out well.
