Ham and egg pie

One thing I hate more than anything is waste especially food waste. The other day I had roasted a Gammon joint sliced it. Yesterday we still had some bits of it left and some eggs that had to be used, so what to make?
The answer was pie. I made the pastry in my food processor then rolled it out and placed on a greased pie plate.
I then added the ham and cracked 4 eggs on top of the pastry.
Then I whisked 2 eggs with some milk.

It was then baked in the oven and when you slice it you can see slices of egg yolk and white it looks quite impressive.
This is another family favourite and used up what I had lying around.
Sorry some of the photos are a bit fuzzy think I have some gremlins in my camera.

Thanks for reading Cathy.

Just found your blog and I'm reading through it - very nice !
