My mom and I used to have a catering business, and this Ham a la King recipe was a popular choice from our menu. It looks elegant on the plate and always gets rave reviews. Being able to make the sauce a day ahead is a big plus. —Jean Grubb, Bastrop, Texas

This was a wonderful quick recipe. I adjusted it accourding to our likes. I left out the olives, added a little extra peas. I used biscuits instead of the puff pastry as I couldn't find the pastry in our store.
