Scalloped Potatoes

Scalloped Potatoes is one of those meals my mom used to cook that I loved. It's pretty easy and can be served as a side dish or a main course. We often served it as the main meal.  It can also be made vegetarian by omitting the ham.

1/2 dozen potatoes, rinsed and thinly slice (peeling them is optional)
2 1/4" thick slices of ham, diced
1 cup heavy whipping cream mixed with 1 cup milk
2 cups shredded cheese (I prefer a cheddar mix)
quick mixing flour
salt and pepper to taste

1. Grease a 9 x 9 pan. Place a layer of potatoes on the bottom of the pan. Sprinkle on 1/4 of the ham, then 1/4 of the cheese.  Sprinkle a fine layer of flour. Season with salt and pepper. Pour on 1/4 of the cream/milk mix.

2. Repeat layers until the pan is full. (You'll probably get about 4 layers, hence the 1/4 portions above.)

3. Top with a sprinkle of paprika.

4. Bake at 350* for 45 minutes.
