Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Knob of butter

  • ½ large swede (about 300g), peeled, quartered and thinly sliced
  • 3 large potatoes (about 400g), thinly sliced
  • Large handful of fresh flatleaf parsley, finely chopped, plus extra for sprinkling
  • 2 tbsp plain flour
  • 200ml chicken stock, hot

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/fan160°C/gas 4. Heat half the oil and the butter in a frying pan and gently fry the onion for 10 minutes until soft and starting to colour. Add the garlic and cook for 2 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and leave to cool.
  2. Add the swede, potatoes, parsley and flour to the bowl, season with plenty of salt and pepper, then toss well. Transfer to a large ovenproof dish, pour over the stock and cream, stir, then top with the cheese.

  1. Although this seems like a long cooking time, it’s all done in the oven so you get on with other things while it cooks, then cook the gammon at the last minute.
