1 small onion, finely chopped
¼ cup butter
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 ½ cups milk
salt and ground black pepper to taste
1 (8 ounce) package shredded Cheddar cheese
¼ cup bread crumbs
Step 1 Place potatoes into a large pot and cover with salted water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain.

Step 5 Stir potatoes into ham mixture; transfer to the prepared baking dish.
Step 6 Melt 1/4 cup butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir flour into melted butter until smooth.
Step 7 Gradually whisk milk into flour mixture; season with salt and black pepper. Continue cooking and stirring until thickened, about 2 minutes.

Step 9 Pour sauce over ham and potatoes.
Step 10 Sprinkle bread crumbs atop casserole.
Step 11 Bake in the preheated oven until sauce is bubbly and browned, 25 to 30 minutes.
