Old Fashion Amish-Style Scalloped Potatoes w/ Ham

This is a delicious casserole. With some salad and fresh bread, it makes a meal.
The Pennsylvania Dutch are a hard working people and an Amish saying is, "Them that works hard, eats hearty."

Amish recipes are a blend of dishes from their many homelands and the ingredients grown in their newly adopted country which produced tasty dishes that have been handed down from mother to daughter for generations.

4 cups potatoes, thinly sliced
2 cups diced ham 
3 Tablespoons  butter
3 Tablespoons   flour
1-1/2 cups evaporated milk
1 tsp salt
Dash pepper
McCormick paprika, for garnish (optional)

PREHEAT oven to 350 degrees.

In a small saucepan, melt the butter and then whisk in the flour. Let it cook for a minute and then add the milk; season with salt and pepper. While stirring, bring the mixture to a slow boil.
Place half of the sliced potatoes in a greased casserole dish.  Add half the ham. Cover with half of the sauce. Repeat and sprinkle the top with paprika.
Bake for 1 hour and serve.
