6 servings

An aunt gave me this recipe, which is great for using leftover ham. I've served it several times for company, and someone always asks for the recipe.


  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup diced green pepper
  • 3 tablespoons sliced green onions
  • 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen peas, cooked and drained
  • 2 cups cubed fully cooked ham
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 hard-boiled large eggs, coarsely chopped
  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen puff pastry shells, baked
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Dash white pepper
  • 2 cups milk


  1. In a skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add the green pepper, onions and mushrooms; cook and stir until tender. Stir in peas, ham, mustard and salt; heat through. Gently stir in eggs; set aside. For sauce, melt the butter in a saucepan. Add flour, salt and pepper; stir to make a smooth paste. Add the milk all at once; cook and stir 1 minute more. Add ham mixture and heat through. Serve in pastry shells.
