    • 2 tablespoons prepared mustard
    • 1/2 cup milk
    • 1 1/2 cups diced cooked ham
    • 3/4 cup California raisins

    • 2 tablespoons sliced green onions
    • Salt and pepper; to taste
    • 2 package (10 ounces each) frozen pastry shells, thawed

    PROCEDURE

    In 1-quart saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Stir in flour; cook 1 minute. Stir in mustard; cook 1 minute. Gradually whisk in milk. Cook and stir until thickened, about 5 minutes. Stir in ham, raisins, eggs, onions, salt and pepper. Cook and stir over low heat 5 minutes. Remove from heat; set aside.

    Roll each pastry shell into a 6-inch circle. Spoon filling, equally divided, onto circles. Moisten edges with a little beaten egg. Fold over and carefully press edges with fork to seal completely. Place on greased baking sheets. Brush with beaten egg. Bake in 400°F oven 15 to 20 minutes until puffed and golden brown. Serve hot or at room temperature.

    Note: Turnovers may be cooled, wrapped and frozen up to 30 days. To serve, thaw; place on baking sheet and heat in 350°F conventional oven for 10 to 15 minutes until heated through or microwave each frozen turnover on high power 1 to 1 1/2 minutes.
