I know many of you will be cooking ham this weekend. If your family is anything like my family than they love ham.
No matter how much you love ham though there always seems to be a lot left over, especially if you cook an 18 lb ham like I have been known to do. Oh wait, most people don’t cook 18 lb hams do they, I am one of the few crazy enough to have one of those to cook. Thankfully the hams we got this year are much smaller than 18 lbs.
Today I thought I would share a few of my favorite ways to use leftover ham. Leftover ham is a good thing because there are so many ways to use it.
Deli Style Ham Sandwiches are a favorite at our house. These are a fun way to change up your basic ham sandwich.
Easy Ham Hash makes a great breakfast for dinner idea.
Ham Salad Sandwiches are another way we love to eat ham sandwiches. Simple and delicious!
Mini Frittatas freeze really well, so make a large batch and save for using over the next few weeks.
Add some ham to these Mustard Scalloped Potatoes and you have a delicious main dish for dinner.
Eggs, ham, and cheese go so well together in this Corn and Ham Frittata. Yum!
Now I would love to hear your favorite way to use leftover ham.
Thank you so much! God bless you for this post! I’m looking forward to using these recipes this week. Happy Easter.
Thanks and I hope you have a great weekend!
These look great! Ham is probably the best kind of leftover to have. I like to save the bone and cook it for a long time, then add potatoes and green beans (and then toss in the leftover ham when the veggies are just about cooked). I also make ham and cheese hot pockets for snacks and ham and egg hot pockets for breakfast. Ham is a great add-in to macaroni and cheese. Mmmmm.
I found this recipe the first time I had leftover ham and we still love it, several years later. The red potatoes add great color (if you don’t peel them), but I have most definitely done it with regular white potatoes, too, if that’s what I have on hand, or find cheaper. I have also used every imaginable color of onion. https://allrecipes.com/recipe/heavenly-potatoes-and-ham/
More recently I found a recipe for Ham & Pineapple Pizza Casserole (pasta, pizza sauce, diced ham, diced pineapple, and lots of mozzerella cheese, and I add some green bell peppers) which we love, and have also done a ham & pineapple fried rice, the idea for which I found on a blog somewhere. In fact, we were out of town this Easter, but I bought a ham when they were on sale the week before anyway, just so I could dice & freeze it in 2-cup portions for using in these various recipes!!
Thanks for the new ideas.
Those both sound really good!
The mini fritatas look amazing, great ideas!
