This simple dish doesn't take long to cook and is best when prepared the morning of the brunch. If you need a head start, however, you can mince the shallots and cut the ham the day before.
8 servings (serving size: 2 ounces ham)


+ Add To Shopping List
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/3 cup minced shallots
1/3 cup red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons water
4 (4-ounce) slices smoked ham (about 1/4 inch thick), cut into thin strips
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley


Heat oil in a 9-inch cast-iron or heavy skillet over medium heat. Add shallots; sauté 2 minutes. Add vinegar and water; cook until reduced by half (about 1 minute). Add ham; cook 4 minutes or until thoroughly heated, stirring occasionally. Remove ham from pan; sprinkle with parsley.

Note: You can purchase smoked ham in the deli section of the supermarket and have it cut into slices.
