Fresh ground black pepper, to taste
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
3/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1 1/2 tablespoon whole-wheat flour
2 cups low-fat milk

Reduce heat to low and add garlic, thyme and flour. Cook, stirring constantly, for 1 to 2 minutes or until onions are coated with flour. Add milk and increase heat to medium-high. When liquid begins to simmer, reduce heat to low and cook until mixture thickens slightly, about 4 minutes. Add three-quarters of Monterey Jack and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, and stir until melted, and 1 minute. Remove from heat.
3. Arrange half of potatoes in an even layer in prepared baking dish. Cover with half of onion mixture. Repeat with remaining potatoes and remaining onion mixture.

When finished baking, remove potatoes from oven and sprinkle evenly with cheese-panko mixture. Preheat broiler to high and return baking dish to oven and broil until cheese is melted, about 2 minutes. Let cool for 10-15 minutes before serving.
