Black Forest Ham with Brussels Sprouts and Cheese Sauce

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!
