  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons whole milk
  • 1 package (16 ounces) frozen chopped broccoli, thawed
  • 1-1/2 cups cubed fully cooked ham
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1/8 teaspoon hot pepper sauce


  1. Preheat oven to 425°. Melt butter in a 10-in. ovenproof skillet. In a small bowl, beat the flour, eggs and milk until smooth. Pour into prepared skillet. Bake until puffed and golden brown, 22-25 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, for filling, in a large saucepan, melt butter. Stir in flour until smooth; gradually add milk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir until thickened, about 2 minutes. Reduce heat; add the remaining filling ingredients. Cook until heated through, about 10 minutes.
  3. Spoon into center of puff pancake. Cut into wedges; serve immediately.
