CRUSTLESS HAM AND POTATO SLICE

This recipe reminds me of the Sunday night teas that Mum used to make.  They were always something quick and easy to make that could be eaten with a fork while watching TV, that new fangled miracle that came into our lives after the 1956 Melbourne Olympic games.

CHICKEN AND HAM BAKE

I’ve already posted a few recipes that use chicken and ham, but they go together so well and the combination is so well liked by everyone I just can resist adding this one to the collection.  I think using a bought cooked chook (such a great Aussie word for chicken)  would add lots of flavour and make this bake really easy.

HAM & CHICKEN CASSEROLE

Looking through Mum’s recipes I found a few versions of a Chicken & Ham Casserole/Bake.   I was going to use one of them here, but really the one I make is so good and very much loved by my family, especially my son, I thought I should use it instead.  I’m not sure where I got the recipe from and I have adapted it slightly over the years.  I don’t joint the chicken I pull the cooked chicken off the bone as you can see I make it without the paprika and I leave the parsley off.  I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.  (for the measurements ½ lb = 250g)

GOLDEN HAM CRISPS

I’m not sure who wrote this recipe down for Mum, as it’s not in her handwriting, but a recipe for these crispy ham patties was certainly worth writing down.  Although the ham quantity converts to 125g, I doubt that extra would go astray.  You could probably leave the sherry out though.
