Melt 1 inch of butter in frying pan, add 1 handful of chopped onion, and cook over medium heat for 1 minute, add two spoonfuls flour. Stir until it becomes a paste. Add one cup milk. Stir constantly until it thickens, about 3 minutes. Set aside. Layer potatoes, cheese and bacon until pan is full. Pour sauce over potato layers and cook for 20 minutes or until all potatoes are soft.
