Ham and Cheese in a Duck Egg Pancake

After you have cooked a piece of ham in your house what do you do with the leftovers?  Quiche?  Sandwiches?  If you have cooked your ham late in the week, this recipe makes a great weekend brunch.  As well as the leftover ham, I use whatever cheese is left over at the end of the week – waste  not, want not I say…


I use duck eggs for this dish but large hen eggs will work just as well.  2014-01-04 12.33.03Add some homemade coleslaw and you’ll have some very happy campers..

What I Used

250g chopped cooked ham

175g grated cheese ( I had cheddar, grana padano and double gloucester in the fridge)

4 fresh duck eggs (or large hen eggs)

225mls milk

145g plain flour

1/4 tsp salt

20g butter

How I Made It…

Whisk the flour, eggs, milk and salt together to form a batter.  Leave to stand for 30 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 200c.

Melt the butter in the oven in an ovenproof dish (10″x7″ is ideal).

2014-01-04 12.38.44When the butter has melted, remove the dish from the oven and add the diced ham.

Pour over the batter and cover with the grated cheese.

Return to the oven and bake for 25/30 mins or until the pancake is cooked through.

This is very filling so serve in small pieces – but I guarantee you everyone will be back for more.

Duckegg BatterEnjoy!
