. salt and pepper to taste

the potatoes into bottom of the prepared casserole dish. Top with the onion 
slices, and add the remaining potatoes. Season with salt and pepper to 
taste. In a medium-size saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Mix in the 
flour and salt, and stir constantly with a whisk for one minute. Stir in 
milk. Cook until mixture has thickened. Stir in cheese all at once, and
