3 large potatoes

½ cup cubed smoked ham or 4 slices bacon, chopped

1large yellow onion, diced

1 Tablespoon butter

For the Sauce:

2 Tablespoons butter

2 Tablespoons flour

1 ½ cups milk

¼ cup heavy cream

3 ounces cream cheese or sour cream

Oklahoma Pepper to taste

1 teaspoon Herb and Garlic Salt

1 teaspoon dill

½ teaspoon Nutmeg

1 Cup white cheddar, shredded



1.     Place the diced potato into a small pot. Pour in enough cold water to cover potatoes and bring to boil. Reduce to simmer for 5 minutes or until they are barely tender. Drain and set aside. 

2.     Sauté ham or bacon in a skillet until browned. Drain and set aside.  In the same skillet melt 1 Tablespoon butter and sauté onions until brown and caramelized, about 7 minutes.

3.     Sprinkle in flour and whisk to create a paste.  Cook for 1 minute. Whisk in milk.  Increase heat to medium high and continue whisking until sauce thickens.  Reduce heat and stir in cream, cream cheese, salt, pepper, dill, nutmeg, and 1/2 cup grated cheese. Stir until cheeses melt. Add in the ham or bacon.

4.     Pour sauce over potatoes and transfer to a baking dish.  Top with remaining cheese. Bake at 375 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes.  Place under broiler for a few minutes to brown the top.
