Surprise dinner.

I love when your cleaning out the freezer and find something that you didn't know you had. Ok so that applies to anything in life. Money in your pocket, cute shoes in your closet, chocolate in the freezer. But today it was a chunk of ham that we had over Christmas 09.. Yes I realize that is sad, but who cares. It was still edible.

So I decided to make a Ham and Potato casserole. Get rid of 2 things at once, since I had some "older" potatoes sitting in the cupboard. I forgot how good a simple dish like this is.

Ham & Potato Casserole (makes 6 servings)
WW pts: 4 pts a serving

2 Tbsp light butter
1/2 medium onion, diced
3 Tbsp whole wheat flour
1 tsp Pepper
2 1/2 cups fat free milk
5 medium potatoes, sliced
2 cups ham, visible fat cut off, cut into chunks

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease the bottom of a casserole dish with PAM. Melt butter in a saucepan, then cook onion 3-5 minutes. Stir in flour, pepper. Cook stirring constantly until smooth. Remove from heat. Add milk. Return to heat, bring to boiling, stirring constantly for 1 minute.

Slice potatoes and ham, them mix together in the bottom of casserole dish. Then pour milk mixture over ham and potatoes. Cover with foil and place in oven for 30 minutes. Then remove foil and cook for 1 hour or until Potatoes are tender.

We made green beans to go with the casserole.

*The only thing that might have made it better was maybe some velveeta melted into the milk mixture to make it "cheesy"... but I didn't have any on hand.
