Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6.
Cut the potatoes into chunky chips,
place in a pan of salted water and bring
to the boil. Simmer for 5 mins until
softened slightly, then drain and leave
to steam-dry for a few mins.
Pour 3 tbsp of the oil into a shallow
baking tray and place in the oven to heat
for 5 mins. Meanwhile, toss the chips
with the paprika, cayenne pepper and
some salt. Carefully tip the chips into the
hot oil and return the tray to the oven to
cook for 40 mins, tossing them halfway
Ten mins before the chips are ready,
heat a large griddle pan. Cook the ham
slices for 3 mins each side until they are
hot and have griddle lines on both sides.
Transfer to a plate to keep warm. In a
small frying pan, heat the remaining oil
and fry the eggs to your liking. Top each
slice of ham with an egg and serve with
the oven chips, and ketchup if you like.
