This looks a bit of a mess really but it was very tasty, again using up the last of that Christmas Ham.
Ham and Spinach Spaetzle Bake (adapted from Taste of Home)
1/2 onion, finely chopped
2 tsp butter
2 tsp plain flour
2 handfuls spinach leaves
50g grated cheese
80g ham, cubed
1/2 tsp mustard powder
few grinds pepper
Preheat oven to 190C. Grease an ovenproof dish.
Bring a pan of water to the boil and cook the spaetzle according to packet instructions.
Meanwhile, melt the butter in a small saucepan, add the onion and saute until translucent. Stir in flour and gradually add the milk stirring all the time until the sauce has thickened. Remove from the heat.
Stir the spaetzle, spinach,three quarters of the cheese, ham, mustard and pepper into the white sauce. Transfer to an ovenproof dish and sprinkle over the remaining cheese, bake, for 15-18 mins or until golden and bubbly.
