Wow, Lucinda this recipe is wonderful! I browned it as directed. Then, my son (and sous chef!) suggested adding a little shredded cheese on top and browning for a few seconds more. We used a mexican cheese blend. This will definitely become a Christmas morning tradition. Many thanks! By the way, I have three grown sons who have all cooked with me while they were growing up. It is now so much fun to join them in their kitchens. I can definitely relate to Mad Hungry!

Yummy recipe!!! Just a suggestion, if you want to make it a bit more high-end for guests, use instead jamon iberico de bellota - aka pata negra or black hoof-. Iberico has a strong and delicious flavor, I buy mine from BuyJamon.com BuyJamon.com the market place for iberico ham.
