This week has pretty much been all about Easter leftovers. The other night, we had stuffed shells and meatballs. Another night was eggplant parm. For lunch, I’ve been eating egg salad (or straight up hard boiled eggs). I’m pretty sure many households across the country have been doing the same thing…
I’m also pretty sure that many households have turned their leftover ham into deliciousness that looks something like this:

I made this dish the day before we ate it – threw it in the fridge and reheated it before serving. Perfect for a busy work night! Another successful use of leftovers, which you know always makes me happy.
So, what leftovers have been on your table this week?
Scalloped Ham and Potato Bake
slightly adapted from RecipeTips
2 cups ham, diced
5 cups potatoes, peeled and sliced
1 large yellow onion, sliced
5 tablespoons flour
dash of pepper
for the sauce:
4 tablespoons butter
4 tablespoons flour
2 cups milk (I used 1%)
1/4 teaspoon dry mustard
3/4 cup colby jack and cheddar cheeses
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine first 5 ingredients and place in a greased casserole dish (approximately 2 quarts).
For the sauce, melt butter in saucepan. Add flour and cook for one minute, until smooth. Add milk, mustard and cheese. Stir over low heat until cheese melts.
Pour sauce over potato mixture and bake for 60 minutes or until potatoes are done.
