1 Gammon Joint = 4 Meals

The Food Shopping haul that goes with this feature can be found here https://julesthelazycook.co.uk/2019/10/18/smarter-food-shopping-week-3-tesco-food-haul/

This feature follows on from the one i did with a whole chicken but this time i used 1kg joint of unsmoked gammon costing £3.19. I buy unsmoked as i think the flavour of the smoked one can be too strong and sometimes too salty – you can always soak a gammon joint overnight in cold water before you use it if you are worried about it tasting salty.

I always cook my gammon in the slow cooker as it comes out so tender, this joint i cooked in diet orange with a couple of black peppercorns as i didn’t want to over flavour the meat as im using the leftovers in other meals therefore i needed to be careful with the flavours. The end result was a subtle flavour perfectly balance and wasn’t overpowering.

Once the gammon was cooked i cut off a chunk and shredded it with 2 forks and used that in our Sunday Dinner so this is meal 1. The other piece i left whole to use cubed or sliced.

MEAL 1 – SUNDAY DINNER – PULLED GAMMON

MEAL 2 – HOMEMADE FLATBREAD PIZZA

This is my flatbread recipe sized up to create a pizza base and if you are a pizza lover but dont like the calories then this is for you!

I used 60g of flour and approx 2.5 heaped tablespoons of fat free Greek yogurt made up the dough cooked it in a scorching hot frying pan – once cooked add the toppings. The ham used on the pizza leftover from Sunday dinner so i still haven’t used the piece of gammon that was left whole. Here is the link to the flatbread method i used https://julesthelazycook.co.uk/2019/07/11/flatbreads/

Top the cooked flatbread base with tomato puree and Italian Herbs. The herbs i use are from https://www.spicentice.com/ use discount code JULES20 for 20% off any order (affiliate)
