1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/2 pound cooked bulk pork sausage
1 small onion, chopped
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Crumble sausage over potato mixture. Top with onion and remaining potato mixture.

2. In a small bowl, combine flour and 1/4 cup cream until smooth; stir in remaining cream. Pour over potato mixture. Cover and bake at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes. Uncover; bake for 20-30 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Sprinkle with cheese; bake 5 minutes longer or until cheese is melted.
