Scalloped Potatoes and Ham - The Moms Weigh In

Turns out that you should make sure you have your facts straight before taking on long-time family recipes. Both Moms were quick to respond to our Scalloped Potatoes and Ham post.

Sherry's Mom let us know that she never called the dish "Potato-Ham Scallop" (that's just the name of the closest recipe we found in the Better Homes and Gardens cook book) and that her version is a variation on her Mom's scalloped potatoes. She also trumped our 80's "vintage" edition of the cook book by informing us that hers is from the 60's.

My Mom wrote to tell us that she never had a recipe (which is why we couldn't find it). She just makes a white sauce and adds the other ingredients.
