8 sl (thin) cooked ham
1 1/2 oz Butter
1 1/2 oz Plain flour
1/2 pt Milk
1/4 pt water reserved from cooking leeks
6 oz Cheddar; grated

Wash the leeks well. Cook in salted boiling water until tender; drain well (keeping 1/4 pint water for sauce). Wrap a slice of ham around each leek and place in a hot shallow buttered ovenproof dish; keep warm. Melt butter in a pan, add flour and cook for 1 minute. Remove from heat and gradually stir in milk and leek stock. Return to heat and stir constantly until the mixture thickens. Stir in 4 ounces cheese, mustard and seasoning. Pour sauce over leeks. Sprinkle with remaining cheese and place dish under hot grill until it is brown and bubbling. Serve with wholemeal bread. Serves 4.
