Baking Tray
Large Bowl


Get Roasting

Preheat your oven to 240°C/220°C fan/gas mark 9.

Chop the potatoes into 3cm chunks (no need to peel). Pop onto a large baking tray. Drizzle with oil, season with salt and pepper, then toss to coat. Spread out in a single layer. TIP: Use two baking trays if necessary.

When the oven is hot, roast on the top shelf for 20 mins - you'll roast them for longer once you've crushed them.

Prep your Salad

While the potatoes roast, quarter the pear lengthways, remove the core and chop into small pieces (no need to peel).

Trim the baby gem, separate the leaves, then tear into bite-sized pieces.

Make the Mustard Dressing

Put the wholegrain mustard, Dijon mustard and cider vinegar into a large bowl. Add the sugar and olive oil for the dressing (see pantry for both amounts).

Season with salt and pepper, mix together and set your mustard dressing aside for serving.

Smash your Potatoes

When the potatoes have cooked for 20 mins, remove them from the oven.

Use the bottom of a bowl or pan to lightly crush each potato. 

Drizzle the smashed potatoes with more oil, then return to the top shelf of your oven until crispy and golden, 10-15 mins.

Hello Serrano

Meanwhile, pop the Serrano ham onto another baking tray.

Bake on the middle shelf of your oven until crisp and golden, 5-7 mins, then set aside.

Finish and Serve

Add the lettuce and pear to the mustard dressing, toss to coat, then stir through the smashed potatoes. Share the salad between your bowls.

Snap the Serrano into shards and serve on top along with a sprinkle of blue cheese.
