This was the first time I've ever made a ham, and it may be my last. As a meat I find it far too salty, and am amazed to see the older generation actually adding salt to the meat on their plate. And yes, you read that correctly. I baked a 10 pound ham for 7 people, of whom 2 are toddlers and 3 are seniors with health issues. In word, leftovers! What to do with all those leftovers! Some were sent home with the guests, but I still had a vast amount of ham to use. And this is how we made the most, down to the bone!
- Omelettes for breakfast -- chopped ham with onions, peppers and cheese;
- Scalloped potatoes and ham -- 1 cup chopped ham, 4 baking potatoes (peeled and diced), 1/2 cup milk, and 1/4 flour. Bake 45 minutes to 1 hour on 350 degrees; and
- Split Pea Soup --1 package yellow split peas, ham bone and pieces of ham, bring to a boil in about 8 cups water, simmer until peas are mushy. Add chopped veggies (carrots, celery, onions).
How about you -- what did you do with the Easter leftovers?
