Leftover Ham Pie

Most us have loads of ham leftover after Christmas. This is a great recipe to use it up and one I am sure the whole family will love.

You can boil a ham to make this as well if you don’t have any leftover. It is well worth the effort.

450g Cooked Ham
1/4 head, washed and shredded cabbage
500ml Milk
1, finely sliced onion
2 tsp English Mustard
4 Large potatoes
30g Butter For the spuds
50g Flour
50g Butter or margarine
100g Grated cheddar cheese (optional)



Cook your ham if not already cooked. Do this by boiling for 25min per 450g and 25 minutes over. Allow to cool before cutting.


Cook and mash the potatoes season with salt and white pepper, mustard and the butter, I like to chop some of the ham up and mix it through mine as well.


Preheat your oven to 180C or GM4


Place the milk, stock cube and sliced onion in a saucepan and slowly bring to the boil.


Melt the butter or margarine then add the flour and mix well to form a paste. This is a roux.


Add the roux to the milk little by little whisking all the time until it is nice and thick add the cabbage.


Cut the ham into cubes then add this as well.


Top with cheddar cheese if using it.


Mix really well then pour into the pie dish, top with the mash and bake in the oven for 25 minutes.

    Yum. Have made this twice now, once with cheese & once without. It’s relatively easy but takes bit of time but well worth it. I cooked the ham evening before in slow cooker. My eldest liked it but 2 youngest where picking out the cabbage! Makes a good portion when served with few extra veg on side

    I’m thinking of replacing the onion with leeks and replacing the cabbage with peas. This shouldn’t affect the consistency should it?

    1. It won’t and will be nice

    I’m considering swapping the onions for leeks and the cabbage for peas.

    I made this and it was delicious. What stock cube was used as it’s not listed in ingredients?
