Mom’s recipe, as I remember it. My mother is a tremendous cook, but is ever improving and challenging her cooking. The dishes and appetizers she serves when entertaining rival any four-star restaurant; her guests are always floored. But, somehow, the things she prepared just for us, when we were kids, are the dishes loved the best.

1-1½ white onion, thinly sliced
1-1½ lb. ham, thinly sliced
½-1 c. flour
Brick, Swiss, or Monterey Jack Cheese, shredded (note: may use just about any variety of hard cheese, or use three cheeses and include parmesan cheese)
