Ham and cheese potato casserole

I came home from church yesterday, hungry and didn't know what  to make for dinner.
(hadn't planned ahead)
 oh shut up!!
I had potatoes, ham and cheese.
This is what I ended up making and it was delicious.
I was excited to have some left overs..
but then....
 3 of my sons came over to visit and asking
 for something to eat.
 I warmed this up and they loved it. Simple to make.
Just needed a little time to bake.

3 tbsp. butter
1 c. minced onion
3 tbsp. all-purpose flour
1 tsp. salt
Few twists freshly ground black pepper
1 1/2 c. milk
4 med. potatoes, sliced thin
2 c. diced, or sliced thin cooked ham
1 c .or more shredded cheddar cheese
Melt butter in medium saucepan. Add onion and cook, stirring, until tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in flour, salt and pepper until blended. (Be very careful not to scorch.) Gradually stir in milk. Cook, stirring constantly, until mixture boils and thickens.
Spray pan with pam, or lightly grease the pan. (easier for cleanup)
In 2-quart casserole layer half the potatoes, ham  and sauce. Repeat layers and sprinkle with cheese. Bake covered 45 minutes. Uncover and bake 15-20 minutes longer or until
potatoes are tender. Makes 4-6 servings
