  Polyunsaturated vegetable margarine/Butter 1⁄2 Ounce (3 Tablespoon Or 40 Gram)
  Flour 1 1⁄2 Ounce (1/3 Cup Or 40 Gram)
  Milk 1⁄2 Pint (1 1/4 Cups Or 300 Milliliter)
  Edam cheese 2 Ounce, grated (1/2 Cup Or 50 Gram)
  Mustard 2 Teaspoon (10 Milliliter)
  Leeks 4
  Water 30 Milliliter (2 Tablespoon)
  Ham slice 4
  Salt To Taste
  Pepper To Taste

First make the sauce. Put the margarine or butter in a bowl and cook for 1 minute. Stir in the flour. Pour on the milk. Cook for 3 minutes, whisking after each minute. Stir in the cheese and mustard, if used. Cook for a further minute and whisk again. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Keep the sauce warm while you cook the leeks.
Trim the leeks and wash thoroughly. Put them in a dish with the water, cover with vented cling wrap (plastic wrap) and cook for about 8 minutes, rearranging once, until done.
Drain the leeks and cut off a few rings for the garnish. Wrap each in a slice of ham, lay side by side in the dish and pour the sauce over. Cover and cook for 2 - 3 minutes until hot through.
Garnish with leek rings.
