    Ham leftovers

     Planning my menu and I am looking for a new way to use ham leftovers. Any ideas?

     Cook with onion, garlic, green beans and sliced potatoes ... makes sort of a soup. (even better if you still have the ham bone.

    You could make hash with it too. Or scalloped potatoes with ham. Or cube it up and add to mac and cheese. Or slice up and use for breakfast meat. Jill

     My grandma would layer mashed, applesauce or apples and ham and bake it in a casserole. It is delicious.

     I cop some ham to add to scrambled eggs, add to bean soup,  add to mac and cheese, ham sandwiches, grind up for ham salad. Put in baked beans, Babs

    Re: Ham leftovers

    A favorite recipe here is Mac & Cheese with Ham & Peas.  Make your usual Mac & Cheese (even the box type), then stir in 1 cup each of diced ham and frozen green peas.  Bake for 15-20 minutes (or microwave for about 3-4 minutes) to warm the ham and cook the peas.

    I also make a ham spread by grinding 1/2 pound of left-over ham and mixing it with 8 oz. of softened cream cheese and 2 oz. of sliced pimientos.  I "grind" the ham in my food processor and then add the cream cheese and continue to process until fairly smooth.  I stir in the pimientos by hand since I don't want them pulverized.  Add some milk, cream, or even yogurt to thin the spread if it's too thick. We love this on pumpernickel bread, but it's just as good on buns, English muffins, or even biscuits. You can thin it down even more and use it as a dip.

    I pinned a ham loaf recipe that turned out pretty good.  It came from the Taste of Home website -- Ham Loaf recipe .

    And, along the line of the Mac & Cheese above, you can add diced, sliced, or shredded ham to a scalloped potato dish.

    Re: Ham leftovers

    I know I'm late to this thread, but wanted to add my .02 anyway. I love to use leftover ham mixed with scalloped or hash browned potatoes, as a casserole. Also makes a great topping for homemade pizza, an addition to a grilled cheese sandwich, pasta carbonara, quiche, breakfast casserole, eggs benedict. Tons of uses for leftover ham!

     I also save any leftover ham, even if it is just a tiny amount, and freeze it to season my pinto beans when I cook them.
