Christmas Dinner Recipes

Ang's Ham Sauce

2 Tbsp. dry mustard
1/4 tsp. salt
1 envelope Knox gellatin (soaked in 1/3 c. warm water)
1/3 c. cider vinegar
4 well-beaten eggs
3/4 c. sugar
1/2 pt. whipping cream

Directions: Mix dry ingredients in a small saucepan or double boiler. Add vinegar, then eggs and gelliton. Cook on stove until thick. (If you don't have a double boiler, use a saucepan and heat on low, stirring to avoid scortching). Mix in sugar and cool. Whip cream. Fold into cooled mustard mixture. Pour into a bowl or jello mold and chill. Serve over ham.
This ham sauce recipe was from my aunt. She can't remember who she got it from long ago. It's very original, because I've never seen it in any other cookbook or website, unless I was the contributer!

Mix all together and put in 9x13 pan. Top with 1/2 to 3/4 c. more cheese. Cover and bake at 350 for 30 min.
