Scalloped Potatoes and Ham

Some days only a helping of comfort food will do.  This fits the bill very nicely.  Creamy, delicious potatoes accented with chopped onions and brought together by slices of ham...
The creamy base starts with a rue, an equal part blend of melted butter and flour, whisked together over low heat.  Finish off by whisking in room temperature heavy cream over low heat, continue whisking over heat until thickens.  Remove from heat.
Pour cream base over potatoes and ham.  Fresh ground pepper and a pinch of sea salt follow.
Bake covered at 350 degrees for about an hour until potatoes are tender.  Take cover off last 10 minutes of baking.
Let set 5 minutes before serving this creamy comfort food.  Fresh baked bread compliments it well, if you can stand more carbs : )
