A lazy Sunday

We haven’t had a Sunday without plans in a long time. That’s why today has been such a treat. We got up late, had a lazy breakfast, a very laid back morning and then an afternoon of cooking preperation and the football. As a Liverpool fan I was very relieved with the final result!

We watched Sunday Brunch this morning and my husband, throughout the duration of the programme, changed his mind about what we could have for dinner about 6 times!! We finally settled on hom bao which had been featured on the show.

We followed this recipe for Hom Bao and then made our own gammon filling.

For the gammon
2 gammon rounds, cut into bite sized pieces
1 teaspoon of five spice
1 diced chilli
1 tablespoon of honey
1 tablespoon of dark soy sauce
5 diced spring onions
1/2 chopped yellow pepper

The how to
1) Put the chopped gammon rounds, spice, honey and soy sauce into a bowl and stir, leave for 30 minutes.
2) Fry the gammon mixture and allow to cook for about 15 minutes until the gammon is almost cooked.
3) Add the peppers, chilli and spring onions and simmer for 15 minutes until the mixture has thickened.
4) Serve with the hom bao and some salad.

The ingredient line-up.
Kneading the dough.
The peppers, chilli and spring onion.
The gammon, spice and soy sauce.
The hom bao ready to steam.

The hom bao were really tasty, although having never tried them I’m not sure what they were meant to taste like!

Happy Sunday 🙂
