1 onion, chopped

3 Tbsp (45 ml) olive oil

½ red or yellow pepper, seeded and chopped

2 baby marrows (courgettes), sliced

1 clove garlic, crushed

100 g mushrooms, sliced

400–450 g (3–4 large) leftover roast potatoes, cut into chunks

100g leftover gammon, cut into bite-sized pieces

1½ tsp (7.5 ml) smoked paprika

¼ tsp (1.25 ml) dried smoked chilli flakes (optional)

1 Tbsp (15 ml) chopped parsley, plus extra for sprinkling

salt and pepper

4 free-range eggs

a few drops chipotle hot sauce, such as Chalula®  or Tabasco® (optional)

Fry the onion in the olive oil over medium heat until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the pepper, baby marrows and garlic and continue to cook for about 3 minutes. Add mushrooms and continue to cook. Add the potatoes, gammon, spices and parsley and toss around until heated through. Add seasoning to taste.
