–  mayonnaise (1-3 tblsp)
–  ovenproof dish
–  tin foil

Soak the gammon for at least 8 hrs to remove the excess salt.You can read more about the whole process here.
For the marinade: combine 1-3 tblsp of mayonnaise, 1-3tblsp of english mustard and pinch of pepper.
Wash the meat and dry it with a paper towel.
Slice it thick (one slice aprox. 1-1,5cm).
Slice onion into onion rings.
Cover bottom of the roasting dish with tin foil, but remember to leave a lot of excess foil at each side (you will need it to make a baking sleeve and cover the whole roast!). Now spread a bit of marinade evenly at the bottom of the ovenproof dish.
Cover every piece of meat (on both sides) with marinade and form a roast from the slices (layer cake style:piece of meat, marinade,slice of onion, anothet slice of meat, marinade,onion…).
It should stick together nicely. Preheat oven to 200 °C. Place roast in a ovenproof dish, cover it thoroughly with tin foil (but remember to leave few cm free space between top of the roast and the foil to let the steam flow). Bake for an hour, open foil sleeve and bake whithout a cover for further 20 minutes.

  1. This looks delish! I remember honeymooning in Scotland and seeing “gammon” on the menu. We had to ask what gammon was!
