An old family recipe devised (I believe) by my grandmother to use small amount of left over gammon/ham and make it go a long way! These are delicious served with peas and a poached egg..yum yum. Allow 2-3 per person.
Brilliant recipe and quite easy to make. Perfect now the weather has turned from winter to spring. Also a good way to use up old mashed potato (but as author states- the texture isn't as good as 'made to order' crushed potato). Two thumbs up! - 21 Mar 2010
These were very tasty but quite soft so a few fell apart when frying. Next time I will add a second egg and chill for 30 minutes. I served with corn on the cob and mixed steam vegetables. Probably would suit a salad more. Above poster is correct, they need a sauce. I suggest maybe sweet chilli as they are a little bland. Excellent though for little children, my kids loved them. - 07 Jan 2015 (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
They were easy to make and a good use for leftover ham. General view from my family that was they were a but dry and needed something more than the poached eggs. Next time I will provide a sauce to add - just have not decided what type yet. - 26 Dec 2013 (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
