Ham Country Gravy Recipe

There’s nothing quite like Grandma’s cookin’. As a little girl, I remember devouring many delicious meals prepared my Grandma B; one of my favorite meals to this day is Grandma B’s mashed potatoes and Ham Country Gravy.

Passed down through the generations, I’ve decided to share this scrumptious gravy recipe from my Grandma’s kitchen. Hope you enjoy!

I always prefer serving this gravy over garlic mashed potatoes made from red potatoes. To make these garlic mashed potatoes, I dice and boil red potatoes (including skin).

Once potatoes are soft, I use a masher and mash the potatoes. I add a little milk, a lot of salt and pepper, and garlic powder until desired taste is obtained. Pretty simple and absolutely delicious.


Ham Country Gravy Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup Margarine or Butter

  • 4 cups Milk
  • 1/4 lb Ham, cubed

How to Make Country Gravy:

Melt butter (or margarine) in a saucepan.

Add milk stirring constantly. (I prefer to use a whisk and stir in a figure 8).

Continue to stir until desired thickness. (Be careful not to overcook).

Add in ham and serve!

  • Add canned or left over chicken pieces for creamed chicken over rice.
