Ham & Scalloped Potatoes

Scalloped Potatoes can be made without the ham as a side dish. But with the ham it makes a nice one pot dish. Of course, the potatoes make a nice accompaniment to grilled ham slices or baked ham.

5 medium sized potatoes, peeled and sliced very thin
1 onion, chopped or sliced
3 TBS butter
3 TBS flour
2 cups milk
1-2 cups shredded cheese
1-2 cups chopped, sliced, or shredded ham
1/2 tsp. salt
pepper to taste

Melt butter in pan (or microwave.) Add flour and stir until blended. Add milk Stirring constantly, add milk and heat until thickened. Add salt & pepper to taste. Add cheese. Place potatoes and onions in pot of crockpot. Pour cheese sauce over top. Add ham, if desired. Bake at 375 degrees for 1 1/2-2 hours. Top will brown. Or bake on high in crockpot 5-6 hours.
