My mother gave me this recipe, which had been handed down to her. She prepared these hearty, flavorful ham rolls often for her church luncheons, and they were a huge success every time. I find that even people who have never tried curry rave about the flavor. -Pamela Witte, Hastings, Nebraska


  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 4 cups cooked brown or long grain rice
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley flakes
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon curry powder
  • 12 slices deli ham (1/8 inch thick)
  • 4 hard-boiled large eggs, sliced
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups milk


  1. In a skillet, saute onion in butter until tender, about 3 minutes. In a large bowl, combine rice, parsley, salt, curry powder and onion.
  2. Spoon about 1/3 cup down the center of each ham slice; roll up. Secure with toothpicks if desired. Place seam side down in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan. Arrange hard-boiled eggs on top.
  3. For sauce, melt butter in a saucepan. Stir cornstarch, curry powder and salt until smooth. Gradually stir in milk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened.
  4. Pour over the ham rolls. Cover and bake at 375° for 25 minutes. Uncover and bake for 10 minutes.
