Butter Sauce

Butter sauces are usually served with fish, seafood and grilled meats. You will find them served at most restaurants and cafés.

Béchamel Sauce

Béchamel sauces are typically white sauces made with milk and flour. They are perfect for making white sauces such as The Queen’s Risotto or Béchamel Mushroom Muffins. Béchamel sauces are also often mixed with other ingredients such as herbs, stock, and wine. Béchamel sauces are often mixed and served as fondues, dips, or side dishes. I haven’t personally used this one yet but have heard good reports.

Brown Sauce

Brown sauces are rich and flavourful. They generally contain herbs, spices and stock. Brown sauces are also known as mirepoix sauces. If you are unfamiliar with this word, it is the base for many of the world’s sauces.

Brown sauces are often served with game, gammon, pork and poultry. They are also excellent for making casseroles, soups and stews.

Tomato Sauce

Tomato sauces are red sauces made with tomatoes, herbs and spices. They are perfect with pasta, risotto and grilled meats. Tomato sauces are also great for making stews, curries and stir fries. This is a good option for a side serving. Great for those who like to use dips for their Gammon.

Curry Sauce

Curry sauces are often spicy, pungent and fruity. They are perfect for curries, stews and other Indian dishes. This is ideal for using you left over Gammon. Serving it with a curry sauce can be a real treat.

Mustard Sauce

Mustard sauces are often served with steaks and other grilled meats. They are generally punchy and warm. One of my personal favorites is gammon sandwiches with butter, mustard, and salt and pepper.


But the best sauce for your gammon is the one you make yourself. That way, you can ensure that it’s perfectly seasoned and suited to the type of meat you are serving. With the right sauce, your gammon will be ready to be devoured in no time at all.
