If you are hosting Easter dinner and serving ham, most likely you will end up with some leftovers. A classic ham and cheese sandwich is always good; however, I don’t like eating the same thing over and over so I tend to look for new ways to serve leftovers.
These four recipes will breath new life into leftover ham. Let me know if you give any of them a try!
This Ham Frittata from the blog Add a Pinch would be delicious with a green salad for dinner on Monday night. It is easy to pull together and you won’t have to fuss much after entertaining over the weekend.
Leftover Ham and Bean Soup
This ham and bean soup recipe from Jo Cooks is another easy recipe to use up your leftover ham. I especially love that you can freeze it!
I am big on freezing individual portions so that I can put a hot meal together quickly on a late work night or send a bowl to work with my husband for his lunch.
Grilled Ham & Gouda Sandwiches with Frisée & Caramelized Onions
I love Gouda so much that I just filled out a card today at Costco for them to bring back my favorite Gouda – An extra aged Gouda by Rembrandt to be exact – which they stopped carrying. It is the best Gouda I have ever tasted! It would be delicious in this Grilled Ham Sandwich with Frisée and Caramelized Onions. This upscale ham and cheese sandwich was found on Epicurious. Have you been to their site? I love that readers can post reviews of recipes which play into my decision on whether to make something.
Pasta with Ham and Peas
Rachel Ray Magazine featured a recipe for Egg Tagliatelle with Ham and Peas. It’s similar to one of my favorite dishes, Pasta Carbonara. Instead of crispy bacon, the recipe calls for ham. If you still have family in town, this will feed a crowd.
Thank you for stopping by. Happy Easter and safe travels to those on the road.
