Grill the ham steaks, make a creamy tomato sauce to have with it using the tomatoes, onions, celery, pesto and half & half. Have a side salad with it.

If you have potatoes , make scallopped potatoes using the onions, ham , bit of half and half or milk .

You could make a tomato cream sauce using half and half and the tomatoes , perhaps a bit of pesto

Fry up the ham . Have on a sandwich with tomatoes and lettuce.
Or over a salad, add celery and onions.

Make a vinegerette dressing and drizzle over chopped tomatoes and onions.

Ham sandwich with lettuce tomato and onion. Pesto filled celery sticks on the side, and a tall glass of milk. Save the h/h for your coffee...

Chop up onion and ham. Pan fry it until cooked. Add tomatos, pesto and little of milk and water to make a sauce. Serve with celery and lettuce salad.

Hello, what is half and half? Is it semi skimmed milk or do you mean half milk half water?

Half milk, half cream. It has about 12.5% butter fat... I think it's known as half cream in the UK...

kbreit, what did you end up making with your ingredients? I don't think I'd like tomato sauce w/ham, but maybe you tried it and it's good.
