Serves: 6

Prep Time: 20 min

Cook Time: 50 min


2 cups (500 mL) diced local Ontario ham (Market Fresh offers hams from Stemmler's and Rowe Farms)
1 1/2 cups (375 mL) frozen corn kernels
1/4 cup (60 mL) chopped fresh parsley
2 cups (500 mL) diced peeled potatoes
1/4 cup (60 mL) local Thornloe butter
1 small onion, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
1/3 cup (75 mL) Bob's all purpose flour
1 3/4 cups (425 mL) milk
1/4 tsp (1 mL) each salt and pepper
1 cup (250 mL) Thornloe local shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup (125 mL) crumbled cooked Stemmler's local bacon (optional)
Sliced green onions (optional)


1. In a large bowl, toss together ham, corn and parsley; set aside.
2. In a pot of boiling salted water, cook potatoes for about
10 minutes or until tender but firm. Drain well and add to bowl.
3. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Spray an 11 x 7 inch (28 x 18 cm) baking dish; set aside.
4. In a saucepan, melt butter over medium heat and cook onion and garlic for about 3 minutes or until softened. Stir in flour and cook for 1 minute. Gradually whisk in milk, salt and pepper. Bring to a simmer, stirring for about 2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from heat.
5. Pour sauce over ham mixture and stir gently to combine. Scrape into prepared pan and cover with foil. Bake for 25 minutes. Uncover and sprinkle with cheese and bacon, if using; bake for about 10 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly. Let cool slightly before serving. Sprinkle with green onions, if desired.

Pro Tip: Still have leftover ham? No worries, toss some in your next bowl of
mac and cheese for an extra satisfying meal.
