    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



    1 tsp Chinese five spice powder
    ¼ 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.

    700g gammon, cubed

    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
