Ingredients

  • 750g gammon joint
  • 2 tsp honey
  • 2 tsp mustard (any kind you have to hand)
  • 500g potatoes, unpeeled and grated
  • 1 small onion or leek, finely sliced
  • 3 tbsp sunflower oil for frying
  • 30g butter
  • 2 tbsp extra-virgin rapeseed oil or olive oil
  • 3 tbsp chopped fresh flatleaf parsley
  • Grated zest ½ lemon

You’ll also need…

  • 20cm non-stick frying pan

Method

  1. Rub the gammon with the honey and mustard, then season with black pepper. Wrap tightly in foil, then put in a roasting tin and bake for 1½ hours. Remove the foil, then bake for 10-15 minutes more until browned and cooked through.
  2. Put the grated potatoes in a large bowl with salt and pepper and toss well. Leave the potatoes for at least 5 minutes, then put in a clean tea towel and squeeze out as much liquid as you can. Return the potatoes to the bowl, then mix in the onion/leek.
  3. Heat the frying pan with the oil and butter and, once it’s hot, add the potato and leek mix in an even layer. Fry for 6 minutes over a medium-high heat, then cover the pan with a baking sheet. Carefully flip the pan over so the rösti is on the sheet, then slide it back in the pan to cook the other side. Cook for 5-6 minutes more or until tender and golden brown.
  4. Meanwhile, mix the extra-virgin oil, parsley and lemon zest in a small bowl. Slice the gammon, then serve with the rösti, drizzled with parsley oil (add fried eggs on the side if you like – see Tip).

  1. Swap potatoes for shredded celeriac, courgettes or carrots – or use a mix.

    If you’re feeling really hungry, serve this tasty combo with fried eggs.

  2. Bake the gammon 1-2 days ahead, then slice to serve with the rösti or use up as cold cuts to make sandwiches.
