Well, let me see if this helps you. There is always a ham & beans, ham and broccoli casserole, a ham-egg breakfast bake, or ham macaroni and cheese, a spicy jambalaya and think of all the soups -- split pea or a creamy leek potatoe with ham.

Gosh, I think we just used up all your left over ham!

Don't forget ham and scalloped potatoes.
Give us this day our daily bacon.

Jamon croquetas, if you are looking for something out of the ordinary. Spanish and Cuban style are both good,IMO. Partner them with tostones con mojo and blackbeans and rice.

If you're gonna make a Key Lime pie, you have to use real Key Limes!

Ham & Swiss on Rye or Pumpernickel. Grilled.

If you can't see the bright side of life, polish the dull side.

This reminds me of Bubba from "Forrest Gump" listing the ways shrimp can be prepared.
"Bubba: Anyway, like I was sayin', shrimp is the fruit of the sea. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, saute it. Dey's uh, shrimp-kabobs, shrimp creole, shrimp gumbo. Pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried. There's pineapple shrimp, lemon shrimp, coconut shrimp, pepper shrimp, shrimp soup, shrimp stew, shrimp salad, shrimp and potatoes, shrimp burger, shrimp sandwich. That- that's about it."

I reckon ham is durn near as versatile.

I believe it was MFK Fisher who said the definition of eternity is two people with a ham.
I have washed the old meat grinder and am getting ready for some ham salad with sweet pickles.
I also could use a pan of Msmofet's biscuits to hold some ham chips!
