I usually make these from scratch, but it was a real low energy day, so I took the easy way out. They turned out cheesy and delicious, and everyone loved them. This is the way I will make them from now on.

This recipe was our Thursday night supper when all 5 kids were living at home. It is a one dish casserole meal that I usually serve with a tossed green salad and/or a veggie on the side.

Well, call me flattered, Michael! Hopefully, this recipe will do the trick to please you :-)

Deeli's Potatoes Au Gratin With Ham

3 medium russet potatoes peeled and cut in to 1/4 inch slices
2 cups cooked ham, diced
1/2 red onion, diced
3 tbsp butter
3 tbsp flour
2 cups milk
1 1/2 cups Cheddar cheese, shredded
1 1/2 cups Monterey jack cheese, shredded

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Layer one half of the potatoes in bottom of a baking dish, top with the ham and onions and finish layering with remaining potatoes.

In a medium saucepan melt the butter over medium heat, add flour and stir for about one minute.
Add milk and cook, stirring constantly, until mixture has thickened.
Add all cheese and stir until just melted.
Pour mixture over the potatoes, ham and onions.

Cover and bake for about one hour.
Test for potato doneness and if potatoes are close to being tender continue baking without a cover for fifteen more minutes in order to brown the top of the casserole.

Bon Appetite and let me know how you like it ;-)
