Here is an experimental recipe that turned out to be a huge hit! I had many of these ingredients 'left over' from a catered luncheon, and decided to give my creativity a try. My family was glad I did!

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease a medium baking dish.
  2. To prepare the cheese sauce, melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in flour, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Mix in milk, and stir constantly until thickened. Mix in Cheddar cheese and Swiss cheese, and continue to stir until smooth. Reduce heat to low.
  3. Layer potatoes in the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Layer onion and ham over potatoes. Top with cauliflower. Cover with the cheese sauce.
  4. Bake covered 1 hour in the preheated oven. Remove cover, sprinkle with crushed cornflakes, and continue baking 10 minutes, until vegetables are tender and surface is bubbly and lightly browned. Allow to cool about 10 minutes before serving.

Overall a pretty good potato casserole. However, when I tasted the cheese sauce before adding it to the casserole dish, I found it to be really lacking in flavor so I added parmesan cheese, paprika, a 1/2 tsp of curry powder, a few dashes of worcestire sauce and a small handful of fresh oregano from my garden. That helped alot! I also used fresh cauliflower - about a half a head chopped in big pieces and scattered on top! Nice flavor and smelled great while cooking!

The kids don't like cauliflower much, so I just left that out and added a few more potatoes. This is a great easy recipe, and I will make it again.

I did this for a potluck and my friends absolutely loved it. They finished this dish first. I substituted Swiss for some Italian cheese. I think it still tastes good. Cauliflower and potatoes are amazing combinations! Will do it again. It's so so simple.
