Melt butter in saucepan over low heat, and add flour, stirring until smooth. Cook 1 minute, stirring constantly.

Remove from heat.

FOR CASSEROLE:
Saute ham and green onions in 3 T. butter in a large skillet until onion is tender, then add eggs. Cook without stirring until mixture begins to set on bottom.
