1/4 c
all purpose flour
1 tsp

Spray casserole dish with cooking oil spray or grease casserole dish with shortening.

3Add 1/4 cup flour, salt, mustard and pepper to onion and butter.

4Gradually add milk/cream whisking to make a nice white sauce. Stir and cook until thick.

5Add shredded cheese, potatoes and ham (if so desired). Stir all ingredients together. Add a bit more milk if needed. The potatoes will absorb some of the milk so you may need a little more. Pour into greased casserole dish.

ENJOY! These are very cheesy and rich, yummy!
