Do you serve a sauce with your ham on the side? When all the peeps are over and we have a ginormous ham, I would be horse-whipped if I did not serve this flavorful Mustard Sauce to go with this ham. Most of the family loves this sauce and the first thing they ask is, “you did make the mustard sauce, didn’t you, Grammy?” And also, “where are the rolls to sop up the sauce with?”
Try it once, and you won’t serve ham, or left-over ham sandwiches without it. For that matter, it is great on turkey sandwiches, also! Give it a try and come back and let me know how you liked it! My recipe card is worn out. I need to make another one or laminate this one so I don’t lose it. I should know it by heart!
Mustard Sauce to go with Ham (or Turkey)
1/2 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed (this works well using Splenda brown sugar also)
1/3 cup prepared mustard (just regular yellow mustard)
2 Tbsp butter or margarine, softened
1/3 cup cider vinegar
1. In a small, heavy saucepan, with rotary beater, beat sugar, mustard, eggs, and butter. Gradually beat in vinegar. (A whisk and a very powerful arm works just as well)
2. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until slightly thickened – about 10 minutes.
3. Serve cooled, or at room temperature. Makes about 1 1/2 cups.
Don’t forget to use leftover sauce on your sandwiches with your leftover ham or turkey!
