Shredded Gammon Lettuce Wraps

 

I am waking up this morning to beautiful sunshine and a pretty prominent hangover.

A quiet dinner with friends ended up with me crawling into bed at 3am which is  completely unheard of for me as my wine induced narcolepsy (as my friends like to it) usually has me curled up well before midnight strikes.

Needless to say all I was craving this morning was a crispy bacon sandwich with oodles of brown sauce. Thank god my husband came to the rescue with a much healthier yet equally delicious alternative…

Ingredients:

  • shredded gammon
  • 1/3 finely sliced red bell pepper
  • 4 little gem leaves (washed but don’t chop)
  • 2 pineapple rings (Dan used canned but fresh works too)
  • 1 green chilli, deseeded and finely sliced into rings
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • Greek yogurt

 

Fry the pineapple rings in a non-stick pack until slightly golden then set them aside to cool before slicing into chunks.

Add half the olive oil to the same pan and fry the shredded gammon until crispy.

In a different pan use the remaining olive oil and add the sliced green chilli around the edge of the pan (like the numbers on a clock) then add the peppers in the middle of the pan. Season everything with salt and pepper.

Turn the chillies after a minuet or once they are golden and a little crispy; repeat on the other side. Mix the peppers to warm them through but don’t forget to keep the crunch!

Then simply grab a lettuce leaf top it with shredded gammon, followed by the red peppers, chillies, diced pineapple and finally top with a dollop of greek yogurt, sprinkle of fresh chives and black pepper to taste…dyl-icious!!!
