Bacon Drippings Scalloped Potatoes and Ham
“The bacon grease not only imparts flavor, but it creates almost a velvety texture when it comes to the "mouth-feel" of the sauce. “ Angela
5 pounds potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
1 - 2 cups chopped ham
3/4 - 1 cup flour
2 - 3 teaspoons kosher salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
2 tablespoons butter, cut into small cubes
4 tablespoons leftover bacon grease (cooled)
5 1/2 cups (approximately) whole milk
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Grease a large casserole dish - mine was a 4-quart ceramic roasting dish.
Place all of the sliced potatoes and chopped ham in a large mixing bowl.
Sprinkle on 3/4 - 1 cup of flour (enough to coat potatoes thoroughly).
Add in the salt and pepper.
Pour potato mixture in the prepared baking dish.
Add in the milk - use enough to come 3/4+ of the way up the sides of the dish.
Gently stir a bit.
Top with pats of batter and dollops of bacon fat.
Lid, if possible.
