Scalloped Potatoes and Ham

This recipe is an all time favorite of my family, I always double the recipe because my family asks for left-overs. This is also my go-to dish for pot-luck luncheons; my co-workers begged me to bring it to every company pot-luck. When making this dish for a large crowd I always made 10-12 batches and I never have any left-overs. When cooking for large crowds I use large foil pans instead of the glassware to bake them in and use my chaffing dishes to keep them warm. When using Russet potatoes it is best to microwave them a little longer on each side. This dish can be served as a main course or a side dish.
