rustic smoky breakfast hash with gammon

I’m going big with ways to rock your Christmas leftovers this year, and a breakfast hash is a wonderful way to use up left over roast potatoes and of course any leftover gammon. You can really add whatever you like. The gammon makes it a hearty meal, and is ideal to feed a crowd for breakfast or brunch on Boxing day.

The peppers and smoked paprika give it a Spanish edge.
