No matter what you call it—"Easter Hobo Casserole"—your boyfriend will want more than one serving.

One and a half pounds of cubed cooked ham, four big russet potatoes, one medium onion, and one cup of shredded cheddar cheese are the ingredients.
- A quarter cup of full-fat milk
All-purpose flour (2 tablespoons), unsalted butter (2 tablespoons), garlic powder (1 teaspoon)
Season with salt and pepper to taste. Garnish with fresh parsley, if desired.
How to Follow
1. Bring the oven temperature up to 375°F, or 190°C.
2. Make a roux by melting the butter in a pot over medium heat and whisking in the flour. Blend and become golden by stirring for one minute.
3. Whisk continuously to avoid lumps as you slowly pour the milk or cream into the roux. Continue whisking until the mixture thickens. Add salt, pepper, and garlic powder for seasoning.
4. Half the onion slices, half the ham cubes, and half the potato slices should be layered in a greased casserole dish. Half of the cheese should be sprinkled on top.
Fifth, top the first layer with half of the milk mixture. Before topping with the remaining milk mixture, repeat with the remaining potatoes, onions, ham, and cheese.
Step 6: Bake for 60 minutes with the foil cover on.
7. Remove the cover and continue baking for another 15 to 20 minutes, or until the surface is puffed and browned.
After the dish has rested for around 5 minutes, top it with some fresh parsley and serve.
