HAM, POTATO, AND GREEN BEAN CASSEROLE

1 cup diced cooked ham
2 cups diced cooked potatoes
1/2 stick butter + 1 tbsp
1 small onion, finely chopped
3 tbsp flour
1 1/2 cups milk
salt to taste
pepper to taste
1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese
1/4 cup dry bread crumbs
2 cans green beans, drained and heated through

Melt the half stick of butter in a skillet and add the onion and cook until tender and golden.  Blend in the flour and milk, stirring until smooth and thickened.  Season with the salt and pepper.  Put the ham and potatoes into a 1 1/2-quart baking dish and pour the skillet mixture over them.  Sprinkle the cheese and bread crumbs over all and dot with the tablespoon of butter that is cut into small pieces. Bake at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes until hot through.  Add the heated green beans in a ring around the casserole.
