Recipe of the week! Week 2 SW recipe.

I tried two slimming world recipes this week.
SW fanta gammon/ham in the slow cooker and SW crustless quiche.

We have a family sized slow cooker, so I was a bit disappointed to have to use a whole full sized bottle to fill it!
I didn't look at the amount but I'm assuming those bottles are around 2 litres.

So first step is to remove the ham from all It's packaging. Take off any fat, then put into the slow cooker and cover in fanta.
The fat running through the middle was removed after.

As you can see in the picture, it was fizzing away around the ham.

So it went in for 7 hours on low and I served it with baby potatoes in their skins and a mix of vegetables.

The meat was literally falling apart, very tender, and it definitely had a different taste to it.  I quite liked it, but I wasn't mad about it.
I could take it or leave it, it wasn't like the diet coke chicken where I thought it was delicious and I know I'll do that again. 
Whether I will this one, I don't know. 
I'm not sure. I would be just as happy with normal ham, so it's unlikely.

The second meal, the crustless quiche, was a lot quicker to make and cook.

So I chopped the bacon, mushroom, tomato, onion and peppers and cooked them up in a pan.

Next I mixed up the cottage cheese and chive with the eggs and I think I put a bit of garlic as well. 

I don't have a flan dish, so I used a pie dish, put a layer of the bacon and veg

then half the cottage cheese and egg mix

Then I did the same again and it filled the dish right up. 

I then decorated the top with some more tomato

Then I popped it into the oven and hoped for the best! 

The end result:

It was absolutely delicious!!
I'll definitely make this again.
I purposely didn't add cheddar cheese or salt and pepper etc as I just wanted to know what it tasted like plain and I actually think it was nice enough as it was.
I loved it! Yum!!

Looking for next week's now.
