‘A half ham will only cost around $30 to $40, with plenty of leftovers to enjoy in the days after Christmas in sandwiches, fried rice, breakfast recipes and salads.’

‘They are the gift that just keep on giving,’ she said.

Courtney also said creating ‘four delicious vibrant vegetable dishes’ will impress any guests.

She recommends making roast potatoes, a platter of roasted carrots, frozen peas and pickled red cabbage.

Courtney came in fifth place on the second season of MasterChef Australia in 2010, before returning this year for the Back to Win season.

She was the second contestant to be sent home from the Back to Win series.

Courtney told Hit Mid North Coast’s Krysti & Bodge that she was sent home early this year because the challenges were too difficult.

She said the recipes were too complicated and included ingredients that were so obscure even experienced chefs would be left scratching their heads.

‘I didn’t know what a boab was. I still don’t know what it is. Kohlrabi cones?’ she said.

Courtney explained that some of the methods were completely foreign to her, which heightened her stress levels during the cook-off.

‘I’d never put burrata through a siphon gun before… that’s why I took so long reading the recipe,’ she added.

‘I thought they gave me the Taiwanese version and I couldn’t actually understand it.’
