Potato, Ham, and Broccoli Bake
6
20 minutes
1 hour 20 minutes
1 hour 40 minutes
3 pounds potatoes, peeled and sliced to 1/4" (1/2 cm) thickness
1 cup (250 ml) ham, cooked and roughly chopped
2 cups (250 ml) broccoli, finely chopped
2 tablespoons (30 ml) butter
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup milk
1/3 cup no-sodium chicken stock
2 cups (500 ml) mozzarella cheese, shredded, plus 1 cup (250 ml)
1/2 teaspoon salt
Ground black pepper, to taste
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit (180 degrees Celsius).
Set aside 1 cup of mozzarella. In a large bowl, combine the rest of the ingredients. Mix really well.
Layer the potatoes in a baking dish so that they lay flat. Evenly distribute all the other ingredients throughout.
Top with the remaining mozzarella.
Place casserole dish into the preheated oven. Bake for 1 hour 20 minutes, or until potatoes are tender and top is bubbling and golden brown.
Allow to cool for 10 minutes. Serve.
Pro tip: Switch up the broccoli in this dish for any other veggie you want - peas are also a nice addition. And if you want to get really different, slice turnips and use those instead of the potatoes! With this one, it's all about what comfort means to you!
