Black Forest Ham and Pumpkin Gratin

Ingredients (4 servings):

100 g diced Tannenhof Black Forest ham, 500 g pumpkin (you can substitute marrow or squash for this as well), 300 g potatoes, 1 small carton soured cream, 200 g grated German Emmental cheese, 1 clove garlic, 100 g butter, 100 g fresh breadcrumbs, pepper, salt, nutmeg 


Boil potatoes, then peel and slice.  Rub the garlic clove around a medium soufflé dish and butter lightly.  Place a layer of potatoes in the dish, followed by a layer of pumpkin slices, then sprinkle with ham and grated cheese.  Continue to build up the layers to finish with a layer of potatoes.  Season soured cream with salt, pepper and nutmeg, beat until runny, then pour over, sprinkle on the rest of the grated cheese and breadcrumbs, dot with butter and bake in pre-heated oven at 160°C (Gas mark 2 ½) for approx. 30 minutes.
