Ham a la King

  • Author: Laura


  • 2 pkg (10 oz each) frozen puff pastry shells ** see note
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp chicken bouillon granules or Better Than Boullion (this is what I used)
  • 1/2 cup hot water
  • 11/2 cups milk (I used skim)
  • 3 slices process American cheese
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp prepared mustard
  • 2 cups cubed fully cooked ham
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas, thawed, optional(I left this out)
  • 1 can (2-1/4 oz) sliced ripe olives, drained (Next time I’d do mushrooms instead)
  • 2 Tbsp diced pimientos
  • 1 Tbsp minced fresh parsley


  1. Bake pastry shells according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, melt butter; stir in flour until smooth. Dissolve bouillon in the 1/2 cup hot water.
  2. Slowly add milk and bouillon/water mixture to the saucepan. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened.
  3. Reduce heat; add the cheese, Worcestershire sauce and mustard. Stir until cheese is melted.
  4. Add the ham, peas if desired, olives (mushrooms), pimientos and parsley; heat through. Serve in pastry shells. Yield: 6 servings.


Note: this can also be served over toast point of biscuits.
