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. 

Set aside.

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.
