Damper is a type of bread. Look up my traditional Australian damper for more info. This is a "gourmet" version and very tasty. You can use ham instead of prosciutto if you wish.

Good damper dale!. The thing I liked the most-apart from the flavour- was that I could make it with things on hands, so I made it with bacon instead of prosciutto, soaked sun dried tomatoes, and buttermilk instead of the ricotta. Very versatile. Only problem I found was it's too easy to eat too much of it.
