Really simple but tasty dinner last night.
I baked a Lidl ham – really good value at only £3.79 and big enough for a dinner dish for 3 with plenty of leftovers for sandwiches.
I had a swede, some potatoes and a leek to use up so I made a gratin.
I chopped up the veg and popped them in a pan with some milk and plenty of seasoning – just to soften them a little. After they had had a quick boil in the milk I drained them off and then layered them up in an ovenproof dish with some chopped garlic, a few blobs of butter then added some of the poaching milk and a good slug of cream, and popped the whole lot in the oven where the ham was baking away.
The resulting gratin was really good – why have I only ever made a gratin with just potatoes before? The addition of swede and leek was really good. Baked ham – well you can’t really go wrong with that,
Hope you are all having a good week.
