Broccoli and Ham Puff

Sorry for the recipe drought.
I had left-over ham from
Sunday lunch and wanted 
to use it up. I thought of a
ham and asparagus recipe
from a local cook book and
used broccoli instead of asparagus.

 Saute broccoli and ham in butter until broccoli is slightly soft.

Mix together puff and bake until golden brown.

 Add your creamed filling on top of the puff
and poof you have a meal.

Simple and delicious.

Broccoli and Ham Puff

1/4 cup butter
1 cup flour
4 eggs
1 cup milk
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper

 Melt butter in a large cast iron skillet
or 9 x 13 dish. Beat remaining ingredients together
and pour into dish. Bake at 425 for 20-25 minutes
until puffy and golden brown.

3 Tbsp. butter
4 cups fresh broccoli, chopped
2 cups cooked ham, chopped
2 cups milk
3 Tbsp. flour
1/3 cup sour cream
1 tsp. lemon juice
1/4 tsp hot sauce
1 cup cheddar cheese, grated
salt and pepper to taste

Melt butter in a skillet and add broccoli and ham. Saute
until broccoli is slightly soft. Whisk together milk and flour.
Add to skillet and stir until thickened. Reduce heat and
add sour cream, lemon juice and hot sauce.
Sprinkle in some salt and pepper if it needs it.
Pour into puff and top with cheese.
Return to the oven for a few minutes
to melt the cheese. 


p.s. Please note this is not like puff pastry-
It's more like a fluffy pancake.

  1. Your husband was very cross with me the other night for the work i got him into to prep for the sale - until i bribed him with doughnuts! That seemed to calm him down.. ;) Thanks for the recipe inspiration, i love making those puffs but usually make them sweet, can't wait to try the savory version. i'm off to bounce around the house, that's all i can do this morning after the previews of stuff you're making for the barn sale! SO excited!
