The weather outside has turned cold and that makes dairy free scalloped potatoes with ham perfect for any night of the week. This dairy free scalloped potatoes with ham recipe can be on the table in about an hour. This recipe is also gluten free, egg free, and nut free. This is a great dish to take to any potluck or to share with family and friends during the holidays. If you prefer a vegan dish omit the ham and use veggie broth instead of chicken broth. This dish is one that everyone will love, dairy free or not. I started with a basic roux made with olive oil and brown rice flour although white rice flour could be used. You could also add some of your favorite cheese to this dish as well. This dish could easily be doubled. I hope that you find time to make this dish this week and let me know what you think. Enjoy!

Dairy Free Scalloped Potatoes with ham
- Olive oil - 2 tbsp.
- Brown rice flour - 2 rounded tbsp.
- White pepper - 1/4 tsp.
- Black pepper - to taste
- Non-dairy milk - 1/2 c.
- Chicken broth - 1 1/2 c. (can use veggie broth)
- Russet potatoes - 4-6 medium, peeled and sliced thin
- Ham - 1 c. chopped, (optional)
- Seasoning salt - sprinkle on top
Preheat oven to 375 convection or 400 standard oven.
For Roux- In a large saucepan over medium heat add olive oil and then stir in brown rice flour, white and black pepper. Stir to combine and then let it cook and bubble for a minute. Do not brown your roux as it will change the flavor of this dish.
For sauce- Over medium heat, whisk non-dairy milk and broth into the roux. Stir until thick and bubbly. Set aside.
Assembly- In a medium greased casserole dish (I used a 2.75 qt dish) spread a thin layer of white sauce. Then make two layers of potatoes and ham and sauce. I ended with sauce. I covered it with foil that I sprayed with coconut oil cooking spray. Cover and bake for 35-45 minutes. I sprinkled a little seasoning salt on the top at this point. Uncover and bake for 10-15 more minutes. You may add cheese at this point if desired. Serve and enjoy!
