recipe: looking for: leftover ham recipes

loralee_2007November 12, 2007

Preferably casseroles, but I'm game for anything. Everytime I cook a ham, we have 1/2 leftover since there's only the 2 of us. I have a great potato/ham/cheese soup that I've made with leftovers in the past, but I'm looking for something different as that's getting old.

Ideas appreciated!

Do you make Ham Salad? I chop the ham in the food processor.......add sweet pickle relish, a little mustard, and mayo and that is my all time favorite sandwich.
Jacki.......your muffins sound like something we would like too. Just printed off the recipe. Thanks.

You can freeze the ham & defrost for any of these recipes:

Combine first 8 ingredients & pour into pastry shell. Bake uncovered in a preheated 375° oven for 25-35 minutes or until golden brown.~~Food for Thought

If you make Mexican food, ham is wonderful in refried beans.

This link may have more ideas.

Here is a link that might be useful:

Not really a recipe but a combination I made one night that turned out really well. Of course you need an opened bottle of red wine.

Ham & Red Wine

1/4" thick ham slices - heat up in below

3 T. Cabernet Sauvignon
1 T. brown sugar
1/2 tsp. Dijon mustard

[note: topping of sauteed sliced onions would be good]

When more time is available I like this.(and I'm not a sauerkraut fan - I use the jarred kind)

Ham with Sauerkraut

4 slices bacon, diced
1 1/2 lbs. ham slices
2 c. chopped onions
1 Tbsp. brown sugar
1/8 tsp. cloves
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 c. apple slices
2 lbs. sauerkraut, drained
1 c. apple juice
2 Tbsp. chopped parsley for garnish

Saute bacon until crisp; remove from pan - save for garnish.
Leaving 2 Tbsp. drippings in pan, saute ham; place on serving dish,covered, in warm place.
Saute onions in above pan until limp.
Stir in br. sugar, cloves, pepper, apples, sauerkraut.& apple juice.
Simmer 20 min.; pour over ham slices; sprinkle with bacon bits & parsley.

Larry loves this and it's so easy:

The REAL Tortilla

(Posted by Diana)

3-4 eggs
1/4 c onions (chopped)
1/2 small potato cubed
1/3 c ham cubed (optional)
3 tbl. water
Salt and pepper to taste

Fry the potatoes until golden brown. Remove from pan and set aside. Beat together eggs, water, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Add the onions, ham and potatoes.
Heat a frying pan until hot over low to medium heat, using either oil or butter to grease the pan or a nonstick pan to prevent sticking. Pour in egg mixture. When the underside is a light golden brown slide it off onto a plate, I know the top will still be raw and gooey so try not to spill it. Invert plate over pan so cooked side is facing up. Once the other side is cooked. Remove from heat and serve. I know some people might be tempted to fold it in half like most omelettes are, but you don't do it with this recipe. Each serves one person generously. I'm sorry if the measurements are awkward, like the half a potato, usually this would be made for more than one person so we'd use whole ones, or if not we'd eat the rest on the side with ketchup.
