Ingredients
  • 8 Medium -Large Potatoes Peeled
  • 2 carrots (optional)
  • 1 cup peas (optional)
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms (any kind)
  • 1 cup celery chopped1 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 250 Grams cubed Ham- I used the pre-cooked half ham and cut it in half then cubed it. The pre-cooked ham is best as it is already cooked.
  • 1 can of condensed cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 cup of milk
  • ½ cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1 cup grated mozzarella
  • 1 cup grated cheddar
  • ⅓ cup grated Parmigiano Reggiano
  • Spices
  • 2 cloves of garlic chopped
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • Olive Oil to drizzle
  • 1 teaspoon Black Pepper
  • I teaspoon Onion Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Celery Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Cumin
  • 1 teaspoon parsley (dry)
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
Instructions
  1. Peel and Wash your potatoes, then cut them into slices not too thick though about ¼ inch
  2. Put the potatoes in salted water until ready to use so they don't go dark
  3. Cut all the vegetables and put them in separate bowls
  4. Put a pinch of salt and pepper in each veg bowl and drizzle with olive oil
  5. Cube the ham and put in a separate bowl
  6. Grate the cheeses and put in bowls
  7. When all of the above is done drain the potatoes and pat them dry
  8. In the bowl of potatoes add all the spices above as well as the lemon juice to stop them from going brown while cooking ( worked for me at least) and drizzle with olive oil and stir
  9. In a bowl open the condensed soup and mix in the milk and stir
  10. Now you can start layering this in the crock pot starting with the potatoes, veg, ham, mozzarella/cheddar cheese, then next layer
  11. Pour the soup mixture all over the top layer so it soaks down to the bottom of the crock pot
  12. Once you reach the top don't put any cheese on yet sprinkle the bread crumbs on top
  13. Cover and cook on low for 10 hours or high for 4
  14. At the last 5 minutes before serving sprinkle the top with grated cheese and Parmigiano Reggiano
