Au Gratin Potatoes

6 medium Potatoes (about 2 pounds)
1/4 c Margarine or butter
1 medium Onion, chopped (about 1/2 cup)
1 T All-purpose flour
1 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Pepper
2 c milk
2 c Shredded natural sharp Cheddar cheese (8 ounces)
1/4 c Fine dry bread crumbs
Paprika

Heat oven to 375 degrees. Cut potatoes into enough thin slices to measure about 4 cups. Heat margarine in 2-quart saucepan over medium heat. Cook onion in margarine about 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in flour, salt and pepper.

Cook, stirring constantly, until bubbly; remove from heat. Stir in milk and 1-1/2 cups of the cheese. Heat to boiling, stirring constantly. Boil and stir 1 minute. Spread potatoes in ungreased 1-1/2-quart casserole. Pour cheese sauce over potatoes. Bake uncovered 1 hour. Mix remaining cheese and the bread crumbs. Sprinkle over potatoes; sprinkle with paprika. Bake 15 to 20 minutes longer or until top is brown and bubbly.
