Ham Turnovers

Yield about 6 dozen appetizer servings


  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine, divided
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 2 cups chopped, cooked ham
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • Pinch of dried whole thyme
  • 2-Inch Pie Pastries
  • Melted butter

How to Make It

  1. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a small saucepan over low heat; add flour, stirring until smooth. Cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Gradually add milk; cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until thickened and bubbly. Stir in salt and pepper. Set aside.

  2. Sauté onion in remaining butter in a small saucepan until tender. Combine white sauce, sautéed onion, ham, parsley, and thyme; stir until well blended. Set aside

  3. Roll pastry to 1/8-inch thickness on a lightly floured surface. Cut into 2-inch circles. Place 1 teaspoon ham mixture on each pastry circle. Moisten edges of pastry; fold in half, making sure edges are even. Press pastry edges firmly together using a fork dipped in flour or with floured fingers

  4. Place turnovers on lightly greased baking sheets. Brush each turnover with melted butter, and bake at 350° for 45 minutes or until lightly browned.
