  1. This is a fantastic recipe, I make it very often. I add lots of veggies in it as well.
    I use a rectangle dish, lay some baking paper, place some sliced zucchini and spinach or spinach, leek, broccoli or some spinach and capsicums…then the ham or not and then pour over the mixture ! Cut into squares. Delicious and so easy.
