The Convection Humid Mode provides the ideal environment for preparing a casserole. No steam is produced; however, moisture given off by the food remains inside the oven cavity. This scalloped potato recipe can easily be doubled (and placed in a larger dish) in order to feed more people. It makes a delicious side dish, or even a full meal on its own. This dish is a great way to use up leftover holiday ham.
