Pig out

I have never met a child that doesn't love bacon. Ergo, children love gammon steaks. Add sugar and they love them even more. Tonight's meal is honey-mustard gammon steaks with sweet potato mash and broccoli. All made very quickly.

Honey-mustard gammon steaks

2 gammon steaks (feeds one mother and 2 children)
1 tablespoon honey
2 teaspoons mustard
a knob of butter

Pre-heat grill to medium-high. Place the butter in a roasting tin or similar and put it under the grill for a few moments to melt. Mix together the honey and mustard, adding a few grinds of black pepper. Pour it into the tin with the melted butter and drag the steaks through it. Turn them over and grill for about 5 minutes each side.

For the sweet potato mash I used equal quantities of sweet and normal potatoes (about 500g for the 3 of us) which I boiled in salted water with a clove of garlic. When they were cooked I drained and mashed them with some butter and a little milk.
