    SweetsLady + 3's Note:

    My family has made this for generations. It's great for a tight budget because potatoes are cheap and you don't need much ham [although more never hurts = )]. We always serve this with peas - sometimes on the side, sometimes all mixed together.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Place potatoes and onion in a large pot with enough water to cover by an inch. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Remove cover, reduce heat to med-high and cook an additional 15 minutes or until potatoes are easily pierced with a paring knife. Drain well.
    2. 2
      Meanwhile, melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat.
    3. 3
      Combine flour, 1/2 tsp salt, and 1/4 tsp pepper. Whisk into butter until smooth.
    4. 4
      Gradually whisk in milk, ensuring liquid has been fully incorporated before adding more. Cook 2-3 minutes until slightly thickened, whisking frequently.
    5. 5
      Add mustard to sauce. *Sauce should have a strong flavor on its own as the potatoes mellow it out a lot.*.
    6. 6
      Combine drained potatoes, sauce, and ham in the large pot by stirring with a heavy spoon. This will break down some of the potatoes and the released starches will finish binding up the sauce.
    7. 7
      Add remaining salt and pepper, more to taste if needed, and heat through.

      This is exactly what I was looking for. I had leftover potatoes on their last leg and leftover ham from Christmas. The tight budget was part of the equation too.
      I followed the recipe exactly, using probably 2 Tbsp of spicy brown mustard. I also added a couple of tablespoons of heavy cream that needed to be used up. True comfort food and it got a "yum" from my husband. Thank you for the recipe.
