Step 4: Then, add in the cheddar cheese into the sauce. Stir until melted.
Step 5: Once done, remove from the heat and pour the sauce over the potato-and-ham mixture.
Step 6: Sprinkle the top with paprika.
Step 7: Use an aluminum foil to cover the dish.
Step 8: Place inside the preheated oven and bake for about an hour until the potatoes are tender.
