Another Mushroom Soup Cheating Recipe: Scalloped Potatoes

This is another crockpot recipe, as that's what works for me these days. As usual, it's a synthesis of recipes I found online, modified to my liking.

Chop up 6 or so medium potatoes and one medium onion. Add to crockpot. If you peel those potatoes you are losing out on nutrition (and time)!

Add about .5 cup chopped ham, or turkey ham, or tofu ham, or not, as you wish.

Add a can/tin of Cream of Mushroom soup and then the same can/tin's worth of milk.

Add about 1.5 cups of shredded cheddar cheese, then add hot water to just below food line.

Sprinkle with ground pepper and garlic salt to taste. Stir it all up.

Cook 5 hours or so on high. Near the end of cooking time, add a glug of dry sherry and/or some beer. They really add to the flavor: I use both!
