Fried Ham Slices
|Title:||Fried Ham Slices|
2 slices center-cut ham
1 tablespoon butter or vegetable oil
1 teaspoon dry mustard
2 teaspoons light brown sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 cup milk or water
1 teaspoon chopped fresh parsley
Trim the rind from ham slices. Melt butter in a large heavy skillet. Sprinkle the slices with the mustard and brown sugar if desired. Place them in the skillet and fry over medium heat until golden brown on each side, about 15 minutes a side. Remove the slices to a platter and slice them thin.
For gravy, dissolve the cornstarch in milk and add to the skillet. Reduce heat to low, stir in the parsley and bring to a boil. Make sure all the brownings are loosened from the pan and stir until thickened, about 5 minutes.
