    Leftover ham

    I have about 4 or 5 pounds of leftover ham to use up! Tongue Tied I bought it when it was on sale, and cooked it right away because it wouldn't fit in my freezer. 

    I need to use it soon, because it still won't all fit into my freezer- I froze some of it, but still have a few pounds left over, plus the bone with a decent amount of meat stuck to it. 

    Does anyone have any recipes I can use? Keeping in mind that I don't like split pea soup. Embarrassed

    Could you dice some of the ham and use it in your mini breakfast casseroles?

    Could you dice it and melt cheese on it and wrap it in a tortilla?

    Maybe you could make a quinch or a breakfast casserole.

    Peel and boil potatoes along with some green beans and chunks of ham. (Southern dish)

    Make a broccoli and/or cauliflower, ham and cheese casserole. Butter a casserole dish, add chopped broccoli and/or cauliflower, shredded cheese (I use cheddar, but whatever you like) add a little water to steam the veggies, cover and bake until they're tender.

    I use it in cheese soup here make a simple cheese sauce and add the ham and some veggies heat and eat. I've also made ham & cheese biscuits by adding shredded cheddar cheese and chopped ham to my biscuit recipe and I don't know if this has been suggested but there's always omlets.

    Layer ham, potatoes and sliced onions in a crockpot. Put as many layers as you like. Cover with a cream soup (celery) and cook on low.
