Delectable Ham Sauce

Ham always seems to end up on my Holiday menu, and at our house ham equals ham sauce. A Great Friend shared this recipe years ago. It has been on the menu ever since. It is light and creamy with a bit of a twang! It is delicious poured over a hot slice of  ham (or turkey), but is delightful the next day spread on rolls for sandwiches. It is even a tasty dip for  Little Smokies, cheese slices, or Summer Sausage. It will stay good in the fridge for a week.

Mustard Sauce

1/2 cup sugar (or Splenda)
1/2 cup white distilled or apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup milk
3 tablespoons dry mustard powder
2 teaspoons cornstarch
2 eggs, beaten
2 tablespoons butter or margarine

In a medium saucepan combine sugar, mustard powder, and cornstarch. Whisk together vinegar, milk, and beaten egg. Whisk wet ingredients into dry ingredients. Cook over medium heat; stirring constantly until sauce comes to a boil and thickens. Take sauce off of heat and stir in butter until thoroughly combined. Refridgerate leftovers.


  1. I came over from One Crazy Cookie Blog. I'm already checking out some of your other recipes. They all sound delicious and I can't wait to try some. Thanks for sharing. I now a follower.

  2. Oh yum...I love different kinds of sauces for ham. I usually make a cranberry apple salsa (sauce) for my ham, but I will have to try this!! Thanks for sharing!

  3. We seem to always have ham for our Christmas dinner, and I think I'm going to have to give this sauce a try! I like a raisin sauce, but no one else does. This looks like something everyone else will like!

  4. We've always served ham for Christmas and your sauce sounds very good. Will be giving it a try soon! =D
