4 medium potatoes, peeled & cubed
1 tsp. salt
1 C. chopped onion
4 T. margarine
4 T. flour
salt and pepper
4 C. milk
1 1/2 C. chopped ham

Cook potatoes in small amount of boiling salted water until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain, reserving water. Add enough water to the reserved liquid to measure 1 cup.
In large saucepan, sauté onion in margarine until tender. Blend in flour, salt and pepper to taste. Add potato water and milk. Cook and stir until mixture thickens and bubbles. Add chopped ham, potatoes and cheese. Stir until cheese is completely melted. Serve hot.

Marcia first made this at Christmas time when I was expecting Kayla. I really enjoy it in the winter time.
