Ham & Vegetable Cobbler
A savory cobbler, this one features a buttery flaky crust over top a creamy bed of chopped ham and mixed vegetables.
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1/4 cup flour
- 3 cups whole milk
- 1/2 cup chicken stock
- 1/2 tsp dried thyme
- 2 cups chopped cooked ham
- 1 10 oz pkg frozen peas & carrots
- 1 cup frozen green beans; thawed
- 1/2 cup frozen corn kernels; thawed
- 1 refrigerated pie crust
Heat a large skillet over medium heat, and melt the butter in it. When melted, whisk in the flour until the mixture's uniform and paste like in consistency. Let it cook, whisking constantly for 30 seconds to cook out the floury taste.
Whisk in the milk, a little at a time, then add the broth and the thyme, and whisk the mixture constantly for 6-8 minutes- until it's smooth, bubbling, & thickened.
Add the ham and the veggies, stirring to completely incorporate. Let the mixture simmer for another 5 minutes, until the veggies are heated through. Pour the mixture out into a deep, lightly greased 9" pie dish. Use a spatula to spread it out evenly.
Unroll the pie crust, and spread it out evenly over the top of the dish. Crimp the edges to seal the dish closed. Use a sharp knife to cut three slits in the top of the crust.
Bake the dish at 450 degrees for 35-40 minutes, or until the filling is bubbly & the crust's a perfect golden brown.
