* You will need either a good, thick cut ham or a ham joint that you can slice yourself.

Essential Equipment

  • Large Non Stick Frying Pan with a Lid

First off, prep your ingredients. Get that onion finely sliced, the ham chopped into thick pieces & the cheese grated.

Preheat your grill ready to melt the cheese later & get the frying pan set over a medium heat.

When the pan is hot, add in the oil, swill it around a little then add the onion. Fry for a few minutes, stirring occasionally, until soft and turning golden brown.
