No one will be able to resist the classic trio of ham, Swiss and potatoes in this comforting bake. It was the result of creative experimentation when I wanted to use up ingredients I had on hand. I sometimes replace the ham with turkey ham. —Sarah Wilham, Elkhart, Illinois

  • 5 large potatoes (about 4 pounds), peeled and cut into 3/4-inch pieces
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups 2% milk

  1. Preheat oven to 375°. Place potatoes in a large saucepan; add water to cover. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, covered, 8-10 minutes or until crisp-tender. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat butter over medium-high heat. Add onion; cook and stir 6-8 minutes or until tender. Add garlic; cook and stir 1 minute.
