1 medium onion
3 garlic cloves, crushed
4 cups whole milk

1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a medium baking dish.

Spread the remaining potatoes over the top, season some more and add the remaining cheese. Pour over the cream, topping the potatoes and cheese.
Pop the baking dish into the oven for about 1 hour until beautifully golden and crisp. Allow to stand for 10 minutes before serving up with your gorgeous baked ham.
