    How about cooking them and then cutting them into pieces and using in a carbonara?
    Or doing a pea and ham soup?

    Or do a casserole with gammon chunks, tinned tomatoes, peppers, onion, garlic, carrots, herbs etc etc

    I use gammon steaks for things like chicken and ham egg fried rice and I also made a chicken and ham pie which I topped with a butternut squash and swede mash.

    This is a ww recipe. I think it would be ok for extra easy which is what I'm doing.......not sure how it fits in on red/green

    Five Spice Leeks and Rice

    Serves 4

    Core

    frylight

    1 tsp Chinese five spice powder
    tsp ground turmeric
    225g brown rice
    700ml chicken or veg stock
    salt & pepper
    250g- 300g lean gammon steaks, diced
    350g leeks, sliced & washed
    125g button mushrooms, quartered

    In a large pan, spray with frylight and add the five spice and turmeric. Cook for a few seconds then add the rice. Stir in the stock and bring to the boil. Cover and simmer 15 mins or until the rice is tender.

    Meanwhile, in another pan sprayed with frylight. Cook the diced gammon until golden, remove and set aside. Add the leeks and cook until slightly coloured then reduce the heat and add the mushrooms. Add the gammon back into the pan and cook for 3-4 mins.

    When the rice is tender and the stock absorbed, stir in the veg and gammon. Season to taste and serve.
    Do or do not, there is no try. (Yoda)

    You could use gammon steaks to make this: (again a ww recipe)

    Paprika Gammon Casserole

    Serves 6

    Core points per recipe: 1
    Points per serving: 3

    frylight
    700g gammon, cubed
    1 tbsp paprika
    3 garlic cloves, crushed
    150ml dry white wine (1pts) SYNS here

    3 red peppers, cut into 5cm (2") pieces
    200ml passata
    225ml veg or chicken stock
    2-3 bay leaves

    Preheat the oven to Gas 5/190C fan oven 180C. Put the gammon into a bag with the paprika and shake until evenly coated.

    Spray a large pan with frylight, brown the gammon in batches, cooking until evenly browned.

    Return all the meat to the pan, add the garlic and cook for 1 min. Pour the wine into the pan and cook over high heat until reduced by one third.

    Stir in the peppers, passata, stock and bay leaves. Season, transfer to oven and cook for 1 hour.

    Note: Try doing this with smoked paprika for a different flavour.

    Gammon steak pizza

    Grill gammon as normal, once almost cooked spread some harissa paste on top and put under the grill again, sprinkle with an A choice of cheese and pop back under the grill to toast the cheese.

    Very yummy and the harissa gives it a little kick!!

    This is a fave in my house
