Ingredients
5 yukon gold potatoes
5 tbsp unsalted butter
1 3⁄4 c whole milk
1⁄2 tsp onion powder
1⁄2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
1 clv garlic grated
1⁄3 c cream cheese preferably whipped
1 tbsp gluten free flour
1 tsp sugar
salt and pepper to taste
1⁄4 c almond slivers
2 lb smoked boneless ham cut into thick slices (about 12 slices)
1⁄2 c honey
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp dijon mustard
Instructions

Fill a large pot with water and turn the heat on high to boil. Cover it with a lid while you prepare the potatoes. Peel and dice the potatoes into cubes. Add to the boiling water with a dash of salt and boil for 20 minutes or until tender.

Meanwhile, while the potatoes boil, make the creamed corn. Drain Libby’s Whole Kernel Corn and add to a medium-sized pot. Heat on medium-low and add the milk, 1 tablespoon of flour, butter, salt, and pepper to taste. Mix well and let simmer uncovered until everything is ready, or about 30 minutes. If it needs thickening after 30 minutes add 1 more tablespoon of flour and mix in.

The potatoes should be about done now. Drain the potatoes and add the milk and butter, and using a potato masher, mash them. Add the onion powder, garlic powder, salt, and pepper and mix well. Cover and set aside with the heat off.

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Move the baking rack to the upper 1/3 of the oven. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.

Make the ham and honey-glaze. In a small bowl, mix together the lemon juice, honey, and Dijon mustard. Slice the ham into thick slices. Lay the slices together on the parchment-lined sheet pan. Generously coat all of the ham with the honey mixture.

Bake the ham for 20 minutes or until it is thoroughly warmed through.

While the ham bakes make the green beans. In a large saucepan warm the butter on medium heat to melt. Drain Libby’s Cut Green Beans and add to the saucepan. Sauté for 5 minutes to warm. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste and almond slivers and heat for about 3 more minutes. Turn the heat off and cover to keep warm until the ham is finished cooking.

Open the sauerkraut and serve in a bowl warmed or chilled.

Remove the ham from the oven and serve everything together right away!
