Black Forest Ham was on special so I picked one up. Usually this dish is made with cauliflower but I used sprouts instead. I sliced the ham thinly and put a layer on the bottom of an 8"x12" pan. Over that was a layer of thinly sliced potatoes. A large shallot was laid over the potato and finally the Brussels sprouts. I made a roux of two heaping teaspoons of flour and 1/4 cup butter. I added 1/4 cup chicken stock to thin it then two cups of milk and finally 1/2 a pound of extra extra old grated cheddar. Amazing!
The cheese sauce was so good I didn't want to stop eating. Comfort food packed with flavour, I'm already anticipating a wonderful lunch!
