  1. Heat the grill to medium heat. Melt the butter in a large frying pan, tip in the cabbage and stir fry for 2 mins until starting to wilt, add the peas and spring onions and cook for a further min.
  2. Stir in the potatoes and ham, squashing gently with the back of the spoon to form a broken down, but not mashed mix. Allow to cook for 2 mins, scatter over the cheese and flash under the grill for 5 mins or until the top is golden and bubbling. Serve immediately.
