Scalloped Potatoes with Pimento Cheese & Ham

Today after we got home from the pumpkin patch and carved our pumpkins I made one of our favorite fall dishes. It's scalloped potatoes with pimento cheese & ham.

I like to use this dandy kitchen tool {really for coring and peeling apples} to cut my potatoes into big cork screws.

Here is the {informal} recipe:

15 sliced potatoes {I use yukon golds}
1 {9oz} jar of roasted red peppers
4 tsp sugar
1 {16oz} brick of grated sharp cheddar
1 pint of heavy whipping cream
1 large yellow onion {I use a vidalia}
1 lb maple ham

Layer sliced potatoes, onion and ham in a 9x13 pan. Melt cheese into heavy whipping cream on low heat and add diced roasted red peppers and sugar. Pour melted mixture over potatoes. Add a splash of milk around the perimeter of pan and a bit on top. Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 90 minutes. If you try it let me know how your family liked it!

Yes, we waited until the final hour to get our pumpkins today. You can tell in our picture below that there were just a few left here and there. We gave 5 way less than perfect pumpkins a good home today!

Flea markets tomorrow, I better turn in early if I'm going to be on my way at 5:30am!
