Wiltshire Ham and Cheese Snack

A delicious and nutritious dish, Wiltshire Ham and Cheese Snack is easy to make.

2 oz. butter

2 tablespoons flour

2 teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon black pepper

4 fl. oz. milk

4 oz. button mushrooms, wiped clean and finely chopped

8 oz. frozen spinach, thawed

2 fl. oz. olive oil

6 slices Wiltshire ham

6 slices brown bread

6 fried eggs, kept hot

2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

In a medium-sized saucepan, melt 1 ounce of the butter over moderate heat. Remove the pan from the heat and, using a wooden spoon, stir in the flour, salt and pepper to make a smooth paste. Gradually add the milk, stirring constantly and being careful to avoid lumps. Return the saucepan to the heat and cook, stirring constantly, for 3 to 5 minutes or until the sauce has thickened. Add the mushrooms and spinach and stir well to mix. Remove the saucepan from the heat and keep the sauce warm.

In a medium-sized frying-pan, melt the remaining butter with the oil over moderate heat. When the foam subsides, add the ham slices and fry for 2 to 3 minutes, turning occasionally, or until they are very lightly browned. Remove the ham from the pan and keep it hot.

Put the bread slices in the frying-pan and increase the heat to moderately high. Fry the bread for 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until it is golden and crisp.

Remove the frying-pan from the heat. Remove the fried bread from the pan.

Place the fried bread slices on individual serving dishes and spoon over the spinach mixture. Place a ham slice over each bread slice, top with the fried eggs and cheese. Serve immediately.
