Ham and Eggs on Sweet Potato Pancakes

For Christmas dinner this year we have decided to cook a gammon. There will be three adults and one child. So I feel that cooking a whole turkey for the four of us would be a waste. Normally I would cook turkey breasts for lunch but my husband requested My Dad’s Boiled Gammon this year.

Therefore if there are any leftovers on Christmas Day I will be heating the gammon up and placing it on top of my sweet potato pancakes. Then I will fry a couple of eggs and place them on top of the gammon. It’s going to be my Christmas night or Boxing Day tea. If there isn’t any left then I will eat this with ham as I have done for this pictures. It was so good that I can imagine the gammon will taste even better.

Ham and Eggs on Sweet Potato Pancakes

Ham and Eggs on Sweet Potato Pancakes were yummy but I’m really looking forward to a couple of slices of gammon with eggs at Christmas. This meal doesn’t just have to be for Christmas. It can be eaten at any point in the coming years. The dish would make a great lunch or even a dinner. It could be served with my Homemade Baked Beans for a more filling option. However you decide to eat this meal, as always, enjoy!

Thank you. xxx
