Ham a la King

This is a great way to use up leftover ham from Easter. If you’re all ‘hammed’ out, freeze the leftover ham and make this dish another time.



1 package (10 ounces) frozen puff pastry shells

3 slices of American cheese (or your favorite flavor)

1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce

1 tsp. ground mustard

2 cups leftover ham, cubed

½ cup frozen peas

3 tablespoons sliced green onions

1 small can sliced mushrooms, drained

1 small can sliced black olives, drained

2 tbsp. diced pimientos

2 tbsp. minced fresh parsley


White Sauce

1/4 cup butter

1/4 cup all-purpose flour

1/4 teaspoon salt

Dash white pepper

2 cups milk



Bake the pie crust according to package instructions.

In a large pan over medium heat, melt the butter. Stir in the flour, salt and pepper & whisk until the lumps disappear. Slowly add the milk and bring to a low boil, stirring constantly, until liquid thickens; about 2 minutes.

Reduce heat and add the remaining ingredients. Simmer until heated.

Serve in pastry shells.
