Ham It Up #mealplanmonday #ham #leftovers #cookonceeattwice

Last Sunday I made a ham for Easter. Though it was only ten pounds and we ate lots of it that day, there was a lot left over.

I made breakfast burritos one morning. I made 4 and put three in the freezer for breakfast another time.

One night for dinner we had a scramble (unreconstructed omelet) This is basically scrambled eggs…( I scrambled 4) I chopped up a few slices of ham, about a quarter cup onion, a few sweet peppers, and a few mushrooms. I sauteed all this in butter then added the egg coking until the consistency we like.

Tonight I am making a potato corn chowder and adding ham to it.

Another great recipe I love with ham is ham Croquettes. mom made these occasionally and I couldn’t wait every time we had ham to see if we would get this treat.

And whats a good ham for if you don’t use what you can and make some ham salad? I cut up about two cups of ham dice fine or give a quick pulse in the food processor ( careful not to grind it up) I add some onion and pickle to a food processor ( after removing ham) and a quick pulse. add the onion and pickle to the ham. Now finely dice two hard boiled eggs, add. Salt and pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, a touch of pickle juice than a tablespoon of mayo at a time until you get the consistency you want. For those of you who want measurements… this one is very similar to mine…

Of course don’t throw out that bone! Toss it in a big pot and make beans! My ham-bone hear is gold. everyone knows when it is about done, bag it and toss in the freezer LOL

What all do you do with your ham?
