6 med. potatoes, sliced
3 tbsp. butter
3 tbsp. flour
1 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
2 c. milk
1 1/2 c. grated Cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese
1 c. cubed leftover ham
1 c. bread crumbs
2 tbsp. butter, melted

Put potatoes in pan. Cover with water. Bring to a boil. Remove and drain immediately. Transfer to greased 2 quart casserole dish.

Make sauce: Melt 3 tablespoons butter in a pan. Stir in flour, salt, and pepper. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly. When thickened, add cheese, cooking until bubbly. Pour sauce over potatoes. Add ham; mix gently, so as not to break up potato slices. Sprinkle with the bread crumbs mixed with 2 tablespoons melted butter. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour or until bubbly.
