Would anyone happen to have the McCall's Cooking School Binders? I misplaced the Ham & Scalloped potaoes recipe from binder 2 in the Meats section. I know what the ingredients are but I'm not sure of how much milk to use with it. I've tried other scalloped potato recipes from the net & it didn't turn out the same.

Thanks

Thank you so much for adding the recipe; that's the only one I could find online and not the one I was looking for. I just found it on ebay - it's called Succulent Ham & Scalloped Potatoes.

The recipe was 4 tablespoons of brown sugar and 2 tablespoons of spicy brown mustard; no paprika.
It was a really good recipe - when you used a smoked ham; then arranged the ham with potatoes around it in the baking dish, the ham smoking cooked into the potatoes.

Once I get the card from ebay I will add the recipe here. I'm also going to make sure I scan it and save as a Word file. lol I know I scanned it years ago; but I can't find my scan

Happy Easter

Happy Easter to you also. Enjoy your dinner. I did have the binder at one time; just don't know what happened to it.

The binder has been pretty worthless to me; that was the only recipe that I used and why it wasn't in the binder. lol

I loved McCalls Cooking School - my mom had a subscription in the 80s and I remember learning how to make things from that feature in each issue. The photos really helped. The best dish, the one everyone kept asking me to make again and again was the bread pudding. It was served with crème anglaise but I only bothered with that extra measure the first time I made the pudding.

Wow, memory lane. I stopped making the puddings in the 90s, I'm going to go see if the recipe is online somewhere.
