👉Nostalgic Buttered Ham

Nostalgic Buttered Ham Gravy over Toast


  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup diced ham
  • 2 cups milk
  • Salt, to taste
  • Black pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • Sliced bread or toast for serving


  1. In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium heat.
  2. Add the diced ham to the melted butter and cook for 1-2 minutes, allowing the ham to absorb the rich buttery flavor.
  3. Sprinkle the flour evenly over the ham and butter mixture. Stir continuously to ensure the flour dissolves and forms a smooth paste. Cook for an additional 30 seconds.
  4. Gradually add the milk to the skillet, stirring constantly to avoid lumps. Continue to add milk until the mixture reaches your desired gravy consistency.
  5. Season the gravy with salt and black pepper to taste. Adjust the seasonings according to your preference.
  6. Once the gravy has thickened to your liking, turn off the heat and add the frozen peas. Stir them into the hot gravy, allowing them to thaw and cook slightly in the residual heat.
  7. Toast slices of bread or use pre-made toast as a base for serving.
  8. Spoon the nostalgic buttered ham gravy over the toast, making sure to distribute the ham and peas evenly.
  9. Serve immediately and enjoy this comforting and budget-friendly meal that brings back the delicious memories of childhood.

This simple recipe captures the essence of a cherished and budget-friendly childhood meal, providing a warm and flavorful trip down memory lane.
