Creamy Scalloped Potatoes and Ham

The aroma of this casserole will help welcome the cooler days ahead.

4-5 peeled potatoes, sliced into 1/4" slices
1 small onion, chopped
1 1/2 c. cubed cooked ham
3 T. butter
3 T. flour
2 c. milk
salt and pepper to taste
1 c. shredded cheddar cheese, optional
Layer 1/2 of the potatoes into the bottom of a buttered 8" x 8" pan. Top with onion, ham, and remaining potatoes.

In a medium saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Mix in flour. Slowly add milk, stirring constantly until mixture comes to a boil. Boil and stir for 1 minute. Season with salt and pepper. Pour over potatoes. Cover with parchment paper, then tightly with foil. Bake in preheated 400 oven about 1 1/2 hours until potatoes are tender. Remove parchment and foil; top with cheese. Bake an additional 5 minutes to melt cheese. Serves 4
