Halal Scalloped Potatoes with turkey ham

I made these for dinner tonight and forgot to take a picture so I'll have to update it next time I make them.

This is a great easy dinner to make served up with a side of veggies or a salad. sometimes I make them without the turkey ham as a side to roast beef.
This recipe is for a 12x9 baking pan but you can cut it in half. I make it in a large batch so I can send some with the hubby for lunch the next day. They reheat really well. They can also be frozen and taste just as good when reheated.

What you need

4-5 large potatoes peeled and sliced as thin as possible divided  ( if you have a mandoline slicer it makes it a lot easier)
3 table spoons flour - divided
3 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese- divided ( The preshredded Mexican blend is really good too)
1 1/2 cups milk 
1 1/2 cups diced turkey ham - divided ( You can find it in most grocery stores with the lunch meats, there is no pork in it, it's a cured dark meat turkey product that looks like ham and tastes pretty darn good!)
4 teaspoons of butter
Garlic powder, salt, black pepper to taste.

Pre heat oven to 350 and grease a 12x9 baking pan

Make your first layer of potatoes in the bottom of your pan. Sprinkle with half of the flour, cheese and turkey ham. lightly salt ( the turkey ham has a good bit of salt that will bake out to flavor the potatoes) and add garlic and black pepper to taste.
Now make the second layer exactly the same making sure the cheese is on top.
pour the milk over the top and drop pats of butter. Cover with foul and bake 1.5 hrs or until fork tender. then 15 min or until brown with foil removed. Cooking times in a smaller pan will be shorter.
