    1. Preheat oven to 200 C / Gas 6.
    2. Lightly grease a 20x30cm baking dish. In a medium bowl, whisk together the cheese sauce and milk. Spread 4 tablespoons of the sauce in the bottom of the baking dish. Then layer 1/3 of the potatoes over the sauce in the dish. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of Parmesan cheese and salt and pepper to taste.
    3. In a separate medium bowl, combine the ham, broccoli and 3/4 of the Gruyere. Mix well and spread 1/3 of this mixture over the potatoes in the baking dish. Then top with another layer of potatoes, followed by the ham mixture, finally topping all with the remaining Gruyere and Parmesan. Pour the remaining cheese sauce over all.
    4. Cover and bake at 200 C / Gas 6 for 45 minutes, then uncover and bake at 180 C / Gas 4 for an additional 25 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Let stand 10 to 15 minutes before serving.

    This recipe is delicious! I added garlic powder on every level for a little extra flavor, and used mozzarella cheese in place of swiss (I also bought the pre-shredded cheese to reduce prep time). We will definitely have this one again!  -  05 Mar 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Save yourself the trouble and just make scalloped potatoes with ham and serve broccoli on the side. It will be much better! (This one didn't do it for me.)  -  14 Jun 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was extremely good. I added a bit of onion and used shredded cheddar cheese because that was the only kind I had. Served it with some rolls and it was wonderful.  -  08 Apr 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
