Broccoli ham puff

I got this recipe years ago out of the magazine Quick Cooking (which is a great magazine, by the way). I've modified it slightly to fit what I like. It's my favorite way to use ham.

Broccoli Ham Puff

2 T. butter
1 c. flour
4 eggs
1 c. milk
3 T. butter
3 T. flour
1 c. milk
3 c. steamed fresh or frozen broccoli
1 1/2 c. cubed cooked ham
1/3 c. sour cream
1 1/2 t. lemon juice

Place first butter listed in an 8x8 baking dish, and put in the oven that is preheating to 425 degrees F. Keep an eye on it, and pull it out when melted. Meanwhile, mix flour, eggs and milk until smooth. Pour into 8x8 dish with melted butter. Bake at 425 degrees for 15-20 minutes, or until golden and puffed.

Meanwhile, melt second amount of butter in a saucepan. Stir in flour until smooth. Gradually add the milk. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and cook until thickened. Add the remaining ingredients. Cook until heated through.

When egg puff is done, remove  from oven and spoon ham mixture into the center. Serve immediately 

Makes: 4-6 servings
