Easter ham leftovers

I am anticipating having leftover ham, so tell me what your favorite recipes are. I'll definately be making ham and eggs one morning, and sandwiches too.

ham and mac n cheese, ham n potato gratin, ham in veggie gratin are three standards.

split pea or navy bean or red lentil soup

freeze some for use as seasoning with veggies like string beans lima beans swiss chard

works well in various quiches

We like a meal of ham and scalloped potatoes. If you need a recipe for scalloped potatoes, let me know. Broccoli is a great side with this.

Ham salad is another good one...grind up ham, boiled eggs, cheese, and mix with mayo, mustard and sweet pickle relish.

Julienned strips of ham are very good in a green salad or pasta salad, great in frittatas or scrambled eggs, added to macaroni and cheese, potato or split pea soup, or in Jambalaya, Oriental fried rice, Cajun dirty rice, or any rice pilaf.

ham and scalooped potatoes was my first choice, you can always make sanwhiches with melted cheese...
use the ham in turnip greens as a seasoning...

Chicken Cordon Bleu

Monte Cristos

Quiche

Reuben bites - with ham. Ham, shredded swiss, & sauerkraut rolled up in crescent rolls with Thousand Island dipping sauce

Ham balls - think I recall seeing a recipe with ham and stuffing as an appy. Maybe put them on skewers with pineapple and green peppers.

Nothing better than a ham and swiss on rye with mustard.

I always make some ham salad - I use my food processor.

To about 4 cups chopped ham I will use about 1/4 cup onion and 1/4 cup celery, 1/4 cup plus some Catalina dressing, 2 hard boiled eggs and about 1/4 cup sweet pickle relish, pepper, and I usually don't have to add salt.

I chop up the ham in the processor, remove, chop up celery and onion and pickle relish, then just mix everything together by hand.

These are rough estimates for the onion and celery - I may use less onion than that because I don't like a strong onion flavor. I was out of mustard one time and tried to figure out what would have that same "zing" and used Catalina dressing - now that's how I make it all the time.

It's been forever since I made split pea soup - I may have to do that too!!!!

Here are a few more recipes.

A lot of the bases have been coveredby the great posters here.

Depends upon whether it is a city or country ham.

And being only the two of us, and I think it was Dorothy Parker who said "Eternity is a whole ham and two people," so when we have a ham, we gotta figure out ways to use it.

Of course the sandwiches.

Fry it up for breakfast, or for sandwiches.

Will grind it up and make a version of devilled ham. Great as sandwiches.

Or,as Elf said, as a salad.

And can only iterate there is little better than scalloped taters with ham.

Or will used the ground ham to make individual ham meat loaves. Don't know the recipe, always wing it. And it only works with a city ham.

And then from the bone make soup, or a stock (the stock is from a less salty city ham).

Split pea or lentil? We love them both.

Or wing a baked bean recipe, or a white bean soup.

Am not having a ham this year, but you folks always make me hungry.

God bless.
