Potato, Ham and Broccoli Gratin

Cooking time:  70 minutes for menu       Cooking schedule: see below for instructions

            Scalloped potatoes, a bit of onion, some ham and broccoli, and you have a complete dinner from the oven with very little work.   Bake it earlier and reheat it if you like....   Oh, and if you leave it in for an extra 30 minutes because you got busy and forgot?  As long as it's covered, no problem...
