Many of you probably have leftover ham like me. There are so many things you can make with leftover ham and I thought I would highlight a few. Plus, if you like ham and your grocery store is still running last weeks ad- pick up an extra ham. I have seen them advertised as low as $1.29/lb. and they freeze great!
Ham, Brie Cheese & Raspberry Jam on Toasted Bread
Ham & Scalloped Potatoes
Add to Potato Cheddar Soup
Scrambled Eggs, Diced Ham and Cheese (my boys favorite!)
Save the ham bone and make Ham and Beans. This is one of the most economical dinners ever!
Soak about 1 cup of beans in water overnight. I used Navy Beans but other varieties will work. The beans soak up a lot of water so make sure there is enough water in the bowl.
In the morning drain and rinse the beans. Place in a slow cooker and add the ham bone. Add at least 4 cups of water. I like my ham and beans like soup so I add a little more water. You can add onions, celery and a bay leaf if you want or just cook with ham and beans! Cook for 8 hours on low.
Ham has a lot of flavor! You only need a little to make a big impact in a meal. If you can’t use all of the ham within the next few days, freeze it in meal size portions. You can also freeze the ham bone if you don’t have time to make a soup right now!
What are you doing with your leftover ham?
