If that's what it takes for the two of us to get together, then you've got it!

Thanks, everyone! You've give me some great ideas!

I have never heard of these, Dave, so I googled them and this is the first recipe I found.

Is this the way you make yours? I'm going to have a lot of leftover ham, too, in a few days and this sounds like a wonderful way to use it.

I'm still eating ham I brought home from my father's house Thanksgiving, but don't have much left. I layered the slices inbetween plastic wrap and froze them in Food Saver bags. They break off like frozen hamburger patties. I could eat hot ham and cheese sandwiches on a good roll every day of the week, but I'm rationing my supply. Some got diced and scrambled with onions and eggs for a breakfast sandwhich. Next time I will have to hunt down this thread for all the ideas.

Bilby just about covered it. Wanted to say quiche w ham, asparagus, mushrooms & Swiss or Gruyere.

How about a Pasta dish?

Spinach fettucine, Parmesan cheese, white sauce, asparagus (mushrooms) & ham - oh, my!


Reuben-like quesadillas - flour tortillas, sliced apples, mustard, ham, Swiss cheese and sauerkraut.

Mozzarella in Carrozza - (Mozzarella in a Carriage -- with ham)

Like a grilled cheese sammich (w ham), dunk the sammiches in eggs & fry in olive oil. Here's one w a lemon/wine sauce.

Mozzarella in Carroza


Ham, asparagus, mushrooms, peas & parmesan pot pie.

Don't forget Cajun cooking! Uncle Bob, how could you? Jambalaya, or any cajun/creole dish that calls for "tasso", which is a seasoned ham.

I was flicking thru a cooking mag a little while ago, and surprise, surprise, they had a little column on what to do with leftover.... ham!! Well the one that hasn't been mentioned (that I recall seeing anyway) is ham and asparagus crepes. Think they used hollandaise, but you could use your sauce of choice. A mornay one may be nice.
Too many restaurants, not enough time...

Happy Holidays. You are probably getting ready for your big ham dinner. Let us know how it turns out & if any of the ham leftover suggestions strike your fancy.
