I like big family feasts. I like to be in my own home, work like mad to prepare foods, treat everyone, and then eat the leftovers for a week.
It’s how I roll.
The last two years, we’ve gone to visit my cousins and grandparents near Pittsburgh, and we’ve eaten at a restaurant. Not my favorite, but I don’t think other people enjoy the entertaining the whole gang bit like I do.
When you eat at a restaurant, you have no leftovers. That’s the worst part.
Anyway, I wanted to put together some recipes that you could use to repurpose the ham that’s leftover from your Easter dinner (just in case you’re sick of ham sandwiches by now).
6 Ways to Use Leftover Ham
- My favorite way to use ham is to dice it and use it to fill my omelet roll ups.
- I am apparently on a breakfast food kick because this ham and cheese breakfast casserole looks delicious to me, too.
- My mom would love ham and pineapple melts.
- I am going to put this cheesy ham and pasta bake into our permanent meal rotation.
- Velveeta? Check. Sour cream? Check. Potatoes. Yum! Ham n Potato Casserole is another that could earn a permanent spot in our meal rotation. Don’t forget that you can get lower fat versions of most of the ingredients to lighten the recipe.
- Ham, egg, and cheese breakfast crepes take my favorite eggs and ham to a whole new level.
How are you using your leftover ham?
