12 Days of Christmas Special: Creamed Potatoes and Ham

When you have lovely BBQ lunches over Christmas, or roast some lovely hams or meats there's nothing lovelier than a creamed potato dish to accompany the joy!  For a vegetarian version replace the Ham with capsicum or mushrooms.

Creamed Potatoes and Ham


750g of medium potatoes
1/3 cup of parmesan cheese
3/4 cup cream
250g thinly sliced leg or shoulder ham
3 eggs, beaten

Cook potatoes in boiling, slated water until tender but still firm.  Drain and cool.

Peel and slice thinly.

Arrange a single layer of potato slices at the bottom of a lightly buttered round baking dish or casserole.  Sprinkly lightly with salt, pepper and half the cheese, our i half the cream.

Layer remaining potatoes, alternately with ham to fill the dish, ending with potatoes.  Sprinkle again with salt, pepper and remaining cheese.

Beat together the eggs and remaining cream and spoon over all.

Bake in a moderately hot oven (190 degrees celsius) until eggs are set and top is bubbly and browned.  Around 25-30minutes.  Serve hot!

Cocinar, comer y ser feliz!
