15 min


  • 2 Tablespoons Butter
  • 2 Tablespoons Flour
  • 2 Cups Ham Broth store-bought broth or ham drippings


  1. Roast ham on a roasting rack in the oven. My 9 lb ham took about 3 hours at 325 degrees.
  2. Drain drippings and broth from the roasting rack.
  3. Pour broth in a measuring up. If you don't have 2 cups of broth add water, store bought broth, milk or cream to have two total cups of liquid.
  4. Melt two tablespoons of butter in a skillet on low to medium-low heat. Be careful to not burn the butter.
  5. Add two tablespoons of flour to the butter. Whisk continually for two minutes to smooth out any flour lumps.
  6. Flour and butter mixture should be slightly golden and smooth.
  7. Slowly pour in a little broth at a time. Whisk well then add more broth.
  8. *instead of using 2 cups of ham broth, use ½ cup ham broth with 1.5 cups milk, cream or coffee.
  9. Whisk and simmer gravy until reduced to your preferred thickness.
