Ham Casserole

We loved this! Will be a staple of using up leftover ham in the future:)

6 potatoes, peeled and sliced
3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
2 cups milk
2 cups grated Cheddar
1 cup leftover ham, cubed
1 cup bread crumbs
2 tablespoons butter, melted
In a Dutch oven cover peeled, sliced potatoes in water, cover and bring to a boil. Boil 5 minutes ONLY. Drain and place in a buttered or non stick sprayed 2 quart casserole.
Sprinkle ham over potatoes.
In a saucepan place 3 tablespoons butter and melt.
Add flour, salt, and pepper and stir. Cook over low heat stirring constantly. Add milk.
When the mixture thickens, add the cheese and cook until it starts to bubble.
Pour sauce over the potatoes in casserole.
In a bowl combine bread crumbs and 2 tablespoons melted butter.
Sprinkle these over top of casserole and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 45 minutes to 1 hour or until bubbly.
Let sit 5 minutes before serving.
