Author Melissa Sperka


  • 3 lb Yukon gold potatoes sliced 1/4 inch thick
  • 1/2 lb smoked ham cubed
  • 1 small sweet onion finely diced
  • 2 cup shredded sharp white or yellow cheddar cheese
  • 2 cups shredded Gruyere cheese
  • 1 1/2 cup low sodium chicken broth
  • 1 cup half and half
  • 4 oz onion and chive cream cheese softened
  • 3 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
  • 4 Tbsp butter melted
  • 1 tsp garlic salt
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp ground mustard
  • 1 Tbsp chopped fresh chives


  • Liberally spray the bottom and sides of a 6-quart slow cooker with cooking spray. Cube the ham, dice the onion and mix together the 2 types of cheese.
  • To prepare the sauce, pour the chicken broth, half and half, softened cream cheese, grated Parmesan cheese, melted butter, garlic salt, black pepper and ground mustard into a stand blender. Process until smooth and fully combined.
  • Separate all ingredients into thirds. Begin layering 1/3 of the sliced potatoes in the bottom of the slow cooker. Sprinkle with 1/3 diced onion and 1/3 of the cubed ham. Drizzle with 1/3 of the sauce and 1/3 of the shredded cheese. Repeat ending with sauce and cheese.
  • Cover the opening of the slow cooker with doubled paper towels then place the lid firmly on top.
  • Cook on high for 3-4 hours or on low for 6-8. Remove the crock from the slow cooker, sprinkle with chopped chives and rest for 10 minutes before serving.
