  • 3 1/2 pounds medium-size baking potatoes

    1 teaspoon salt

    ¼ cup Granny’s Good Ol’ Fashion Bacon Drippings

    1 large onion, chopped

    1/3 cup Shawnee Mills All Purpose Flour

    2 cups Hiland Half & Half

    1 teaspoon kosher salt

    ½ teaspoon black pepper

    1 cup Bar-S Chopped Ham

    2 cups grated white cheddar cheese

    1 cup grated Gruyere cheese

  • Step 1Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add potatoes and 1 teaspoon salt. Boil 20 minutes. Drain, and cool slightly.

    Step 2Add Granny’s Bacon Drippings to a sauté pan on medium heat. Once melted, add onion. Turn heat to medium-low, and cook for 10-15 minutes until onions are caramelized.

    Step 5Repeat with remaining potatoes, ham, cheese and Sauce ending with Gruyere cheese. Cover and bake in a preheated 400-degree oven for 40 minutes. Uncover and bake an additional 20 minutes.
