Potato and Bacon au Gratin

6 (2 pounds) medium potatoes
8 slices bacon, cooked crumbled 
3 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 small onion, diced
1 1/2 tablespoons flour
2 cups milk
1 (8 ounce) package shredded cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Peel potatoes and slice thinly.  You can leave the peel on if you would like.

In 2 quart baking dish, arrange 1/3 of the potato slices.  Sprinkle half of the bacon on top.  

Add an additional 1/3 of the potato slices.  Sprinkle the remaining bacon over top.  

Arrange the remaining potato slices on top.

In medium saucepan, saute onion in butter until translucent.  Add flour, cook 1 minute.  

Add milk and cheese.  Salt and pepper to taste.  
Cook over medium heat until cheese is melted.  

Pour over potatoes.  Bake one hour, until golden brown.  If the potatoes are not tender after an hour, cover with aluminum foil and bake an additional 15 to 20 minutes.

I finally feel well enough to get back to blogging.  Who knew a small cut on my foot and walking in the ocean in South Africa would cause me so much trouble.  Outside of that, I am in great health and glad to be getting back to my normal schedule.
