Gluten Free Scalloped Potatoes with Ham and Kale
I’ve been on a bit of a kale kick as of the past few months. Whenever I have kale as part of a meal, I like to have a side or main that’s one of my guilty pleasures. This week’s guilty pleasure is scalloped potatoes. I just love the marriage of caramelized potatoes with a creamy cheese sauce. So tasty.
This is an easy recipe that you can make any day of the week in under an hour. The effort lies all in the potatoes with little preparation needed for the kale or ham. I hope you enjoy this recipe!
3 lbs prepared ham
6 kale leaves
3 tbsp red wine vinegar
6 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder
2 lbs potatoes
1 1/2 cup cream
3 tsp thyme
3 garlic cloves
dash salt & pepper
1/2 cup grated Parmesan
1. Preheat the oven to 400F. Chop the Kale into salad sized pieces. In a small bowl whisk the vinegar, oil, salt, and pepper together. Toss with the kale and set aside.
2. In a saucepan over medium low heat, whisk the cream, thyme, salt and pepper together. Mince the garlic and add it to the cream. Cook for 5 minutes.
