Use a speciality sliced ham to give this straightforward and comforting bake of waxy potatoes and Gruyère cheese the best flavour. Layer the prepared ingredients, then sit back and relax while it cooks. Serve with a green salad. Delicious!
For diced ham, use bought crispy cooked bacon or cooked and flaked smoked haddock. * For Gruyère cheese, use a well-flavoured goat's cheese or mature Cheddar cheese. * For a vegetarian dish replace the ham with grated or diced cheese or cooked mushrooms. Try using one type of diced cheese inside and a different one grated on top, such as diced Stilton and grated Cheddar.
You can use any odd-shaped pieces of leftover cooked ham or gammon in this dish.
