Suggestions for leftover ham

I am not much of a ham lover, but my dh is, so I made a bone-in spiral sliced ham for him this Christmas. Since I don't do much with ham, and he will eventually get sick of ham sandwiches, I was wondering what other ways there are that I can incorporate into dishes. I plan to do a quiche and we love old-timey ham and beans, but beyond that I rarely use ham in recipes. TIA!

Use it like you would pancetta or bacon in an alfredo type sauce...dice it and top a chicken dish with it...freeze a bunch for when you are feeling lazy! I find it is a godsend to have in the freezer when I'm running late and the kids have to get out to a dance class.

Well I came here to suggest Red Beans & Rice --- The bone and a few scraps of ham Scream them to me...Added sausage towards the end of cooking creates a nice flavor, plus I like a nice link of sausage on the side --- in the bowl --on the plate -- whatever!

Have Fun & Enjoy!

I'm not a big ham fan, either, but scalloped ham and potatoes always hits the spot.

Thank you so much for all of the yummy suggestions! I think the scalloped potatoes will now have to be on the menu this weekend. And we love split pea soup, but I usually use bacon. Great ideas! Thanks!

I freeze thick slices of ham in FoodSaver bags for use in future breakfasts (Ham & Eggs) and also will grind up flavorful pieces to make a ham sandwich spread, which is also good in a tomato as a salad.

Here is a recipe I tried when MIL sent home the leftovers of her spiral ham (with bone), it was really really good!
