The Alternative Sunday Dinner: Ham, Egg and Chips

November 25, 2016

Last weekend it was my task to cook the Sunday Dinner. I wanted to do something different to usual as we’d had so many typical roast dinners lately.

It was kinda perfect when Market Porter UK and Gran Luchito approached me about making a Smoked Chilli Honey Glazed Roast Ham. It kinda got me thinking about what I could serve it with instead of the usual trimmings.


We’d spent the weekend with my family… On the Sunday we went for a walk (with me wearing my Not So Christmas Jumper) and Daddy P and my Uncle had went off clay pigeon shooting for the day. So I knew I needed to cook something that would warm us all up after a chilly day outdoors!



After much thought I decided I would do a Sunday Dinner of Ham, Egg and Home Made Chips. Perfect really! I also included spicy homemade baked beans, as you can’t really go wrong with beans that have been slow cooked in the oven for as long at the ham has been cooking.

FYI- I boiled the ham, then took the skin off (with help from Mr W), scored it, and kept an eye on it whilst glazing. For a 2kg ham it took 1h 40m on the pan and about 50m in the oven.


The Market Porter Horse Shoe of Gammon is ethically sourced meat. You can trace back your meat to the farm and it’s of such high quality. I do suggest soaking for a few hours in water before cooking though, changing the water a couple of times. This helps make the meat succulent! The Gran Luchito Smoked Chilli Honey has a real kick to it. But when cooked it’s sweet as well as spicy. In all honesty I could’ve smothered more on the meat. It was just delicious!


The meal went down an absolute treat. There was literally nothing left! Although Mr W and I still managed room for Popcorn Covered Brownies

Would you make this instead of a normal Sunday lunch? How do you like to spend your Sunday’s? Let me know in the comments,

      The honey would be good on other meats too or even good with roast veg 🙂 Chips are the best!

      It’s honestly one of my favourites, my next favourite being homemade quiche with baked beans.

    I love vegan gammon and am now thinking of giving it a glaze like the one you made – something to spice it up a little. I really like the idea of giving the Sunday roast a bit of a spicy twist.

    We usually go out walking or hiking on a Sunday and I cook fresh everyday. I do often make us a pie on a Sunday but am now thinking that this Sunday calls for a spicy roast! 🙂

      Oooh I hope you managed to make it, there’s nothing better than cooking fresh every day 🙂

    I’ve made gammon before and it is surprisingly easy. I boil it in part water and part squash or orange juice and put a honey, mustard and marmalade glaze on top. The Smoke Chilli Honey glaze sounds awesome though!

      That’s often how I make it or with cola before baking. The smokey honey is pretty delicious 🙂

    The Smoked Chilli Honey Glazed sounds very nice. I love smoked spices and I use smoked paprika often. I also like honey glaze, so that is something I would like to try.

      It’s really tasty, well worth a try 🙂

    That gammon joint looks amazing. I haven’t had gammon for ages and this is such a yummy meal.

      It’s such a great meal and really fairly easy to make too.
