Slow Cooker Cheesy Ham and Scalloped Potatoes

Weather is getting chilly. Ham and Potatoes is one of our favorite cool weather meals. MMMM comfort foods!

4-6 medium-large potatoes, thinly sliced
8-12 oz ham, diced
1 medium onion, chopped
3 TB butter
1/4 cup flour
2 cups milk
2 cups shredded cheddar
1 can cream of mushroom soup(or homemade RECIPE)
salt and pepper to taste

Layer sliced potatoes in a crock pot, I LOVE the Reynolds Slow Cooker Liners if you have not tried them!!

Sprinkle onions over potatoes

Layer the ham on top,
You can add a layer of frozen peas here for some color if you want! About 1.5 cups

Melt butter over medium heat in a 2 quart sauce pan.
Add flour and whisk until smooth and bubbly
 SLOWLY whisk in milk , heat and stir until thickened.

Add in cream of mushroom soup and stir until smooth

Remove from heat and add in shredded cheese and stir until the cheese is fully melted.

Pour cheese sauce over the top of the ham  DO NOT STIR. Place lid on crock pot and cook on LOW for 4-6 hours(you can kick it up to high in the last hour if need be), until the potatoes are soft. Stir gently to combine just before serving.
