If you’re serving a large ham this weekend, you need a plan for leftovers that goes beyond sandwiches. Here are ways to make that ham disappear, from the Recipe Finder.
Swiss Mac and Cheese With Ham and Peas. It’s a classic for a reason.
Ham Biscuit Spread. A simple mix of butter, mustard, poppy seeds and cubed ham. Spread it on biscuits or toast, put an egg on it, drop the mic.
Quick Ham-Fried Rice With Lavender. The floral notes from culinary lavender pair very well with ham.
Lentils With Apples and Ham. Great for packed lunches.
Nassau Grits. Bacon, bell pepper, ham and canned tomatoes make for grits full of flavor.
Broken Spaghetti With Mushrooms and Ham. A slimmed down version of a traditional Italian dish. Serve with roasted asparagus.
Classic Egg Salad. Add diced ham to egg salad for an extra savory kick.
If you get a bone-in ham, don’t toss the bone — it adds great flavor to beans, as in this recipe for Cuban Black Beans and Rice.
