Easy Recipe for Quick Dinner

This is a great "comfort food" recipe. You can buy packages of cooked, cubed ham at the supermarket. Recipe doubles easily for a 9x13-inch baking dish.
Ham and Potatoes
1 ½ cups cooked, cubed ham
3 cups diced cooked potatoes (Yukon Gold are best)
¼ cup margarine
½ cup chopped onion
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 cups milk
Salt & pepper, to taste
¼ teaspoon dry mustard
½ cup grated sharp Cheddar cheese
8 crushed Ritz crackers
1 tablespoon melted margarine

Place ham and potatoes in shallow 1 ½ quart baking dish. Melt ¼ cup margarine in large saucepan; add onion and cook until transparent. Blend in flour, stirring constantly. Cook for 2 minutes. Gradually add milk and cook, stirring until thickened. Add salt, pepper and dry mustard. Pour mixture over ham and potatoes. Sprinkle with cheese. Combine crushed crackers and melted margarine; sprinkle with additional cheese. Bake at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes or until bubbly.
