Ingredients

30 ml  2 tbsp    butter
30 ml  2 tbsp    flour
250 ml  1 cup    whole milk, heated
375 ml  1 1/2 cups    diced, cooked ham
4    green onions, green part only,         sliced thinly
60 ml  4 tbsp    currants
1 ml  1/4 tsp    clove powder
To taste    salt and freshly ground pepper
45 ml  3 tbsp    granulated maple sugar
45 ml  3 tbsp    tomato ketchup
As required    orange juice

Directions

Preheat oven to 180°C / 350°F. Generously butter four 125-ml / 1/2-cup ramequins and line the bottoms with a circle of parchment.

In a skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Sprinkle with flour and cook, stirring, over low heat for 2 minutes. While stirring, add the hot milk, bring to a boil and remove from heat.

Stir in the ham, green onions, currants, clove powder, salt and pepper.

Divide the mixture among the ramequins and bake in a bain-marie for about 45 minutes or until the tip of a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean. Remove from oven, cover and let sit in the bain-marie for 10 minutes.

In a small saucepan, combine the maple sugar and ketchup, thinning with a little orange juice. Bring to a boil and remove from heat.

Unmould the pâtés onto four plates and garnish with a little sauce. Serve with cooked julienned carrots.
