  • Bake for 20 minutes then add the prosciutto and cook for a further 15 mins.
  • Defrost the peas by sitting them in boiling water. Drain well.
  • Once the potatoes and prosciutto are crispy, remove from the oven and scatter over the peas.


  • Serve immediately with the optional creme fraiche or sour cream.


  • Re-heat in a low oven until just hot.


  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
