Last year I hosted Easter dinner for my friend-family, and since buying a small ham wasn’t exactly possible at my grocery store, I ended up with over 5 pounds of leftover ham. Unwilling to waste food, I came up with lots of creative ways to repurpose my leftover ham. With Easter on Sunday, I am guessing that some of my readers might have some leftover ham in the fridge next week. Here are seven fun ways to make new meals with your leftovers.
Make Baked Scrambled Eggs with Ham, Tomato, Artichoke, and Swiss – this is a very easy dish with little prep time. You can make a big batch and have breakfast ready for the entire week.
Last year I made meals with leftover ham from a week straight. This Monte Cristo was my absolute favorite. It could be served any time of the day, but it does make a great brunch.
Ham and Swiss Macaroni and Cheese is a great twist on macaroni and cheese. You could even add broccoli or other vegetables into this dish.
If you want to pack lunches for the family, try Ham Swiss and Mustard on a Pretzel Roll.
Linguine with Ham and Asparagus in a Mascarpone Sauce is an easy recipe that gets dinner to the table is just 20 minutes.
If you want Pizza:
Try this Ham, Spinach, and Artichoke Pizza which is probably one of the best pizza’s I have ever made. It was basically spinach artichoke dip, ham, and pizza combined.
Or, Hawaiian Pizza - you could even grill the pineapple if you want to get fancy.
I hope that everyone has a wonderful Easter! If you happen to be hosting an Easter brunch, you may want to check out this brunch post I wrote with my friend Christine for Coca-Cola.
