Ideas for leftover ham?

I have some leftover boneless ham, and I dont' want to just serve plain leftovers. I hate pea soup, and I'm tired of breakfast for dinner. Any other suggestions for using the ham?

In spaghetti sauce? Maybe it's just me, but that doesn't sound appetizing.

You can make many sandwiches out of it.. Try using Pita Bread. Or you can do an bagel. Also put it with macaroni and cheese and stuff the ham in it.. This should taste really good.

My brother made this stuff at my house with left over ham. I don't know what he calls it but he just put a bunch of potatoes in a roaster with onion, milk, some cheese, and ham. Cooked it for about an hour then put more cheese on top. It was pretty good and it makes as much as you want it to make so I do it every time we have ham since I am feeding 5 and it is easy and not expensive to make.

Scalloped Potatoes is what it is called. That was going to be my suggestion. I do not put cheese in mine though. I make a sauce out of butter, flour, and milk. Then I season it with salt and pepper and pour it over the potatoes and ham. It is YUMMY!

Thanks for giving it a name. It is so good with cheese in it, but I'm sure that it would be very good with out cheese.

I've never heard of scalloped potatoes with ham, but that does sound good. Thanks.

Chop it up, then gently fry it in a little butter, with some diced onion, grated carrot and zucchini. Then mix with eggs, grated cheese and a little cream. Put it in an oven proof dish and bake till set. Sprinkle with a little more cheese and place under the grill. May be eaten hot or cold

Why not cube it and use it in some egg fried rice? That's not only tasty but quick and easy to make as well. Or you can add it to an egg mixture and make a quiche. Or how about a chef salad with the ham as one of the components? I guess the possibilities are endless but depend on what you feel like and have in the house to fix with it.

I've never made egg fried rice, but I may try that. I also like the chef salad idea.

I dice it and put it in scrambled eggs with cheese - a mock omelet and my GD's love it - I have taught them both how to make scramby eggs and ham and they both love to make and eat! I also use chunks/slices to add to scalloped potatoes, mac and cheese and add to a salad.

How about a snack for work ? Make s few small sandwiches with the additives you like, put them in your bag and snack while at work, or while at the supermarket, or while driving ? Little snacks are supposed to be healthy for you, anyway.

Maybe you could fix Ham cassrole,ham salad,potatoe soup with ham or a salad with ham. I hope these may be a help.

When I have leftover ham, I dice it and put it into a pot of green beans. I let them cook a good long time. Then about a half an hour or so before serving, I put potato chunks into the pot. This make a good 'homey' meal. My daughter and I would have this alot. I am thinking about going out and getting some 'fresh' green beans and making it this week. YUM

What about ham and beans? You could also make some ham sandwhiches for lunch out of it or you could just fry the ham and serve it as fried ham with a baked potato. There are several things you could do with it.

Try cutting it up in cubes and sprinkle on top of a good fresh salad! I do that on my salads, it's good. I also do it with chicken, beek, and pork. Either hot or cold it's a good healthy way to use the left overs. While your at it make some garlic bread and make a meal of it! Thanls! tdemex
