Posh Gammon, Egg and Chips

My egg was a little strange, as the white had attempted to escape from the yolk, but it was still very good.


I went to karate this afternoon with my hand all strapped up, which means that my right-hand side (the one doing all the punching) was pretty knackered.  Unfortunately, it’s not really possible to cook dinner with your left-hand side which your right-hand side sits on the settee, so A Man cooked tonight.  It was pretty simple, but bloody lovely!  He cut potatoes into wedges and cooked in seasoned olive oil in a hot oven until soft in the middle and crispy on the outside.  The gammon steaks (some of the 9p ones I bought a few weeks ago and stuck in the freezer) were grilled until the meat was cooked through and the rind ever so slightly chewy.  He brushed the steaks with a mixture of honey, wholegrain mustard and balsamic vinegar (although he claims it should have been brushed on a bit sooner so it could caramelise a bit).  This was served with boiled corn on the cob and duck eggs; mine poached and his fried.  Exactly what I wanted after a decent workout.

Much love
