Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium-sized bowl, mix mashed potatoes and mustard. Spread potato mixture in the bottom of a greased 8-inch square baking pan. Arrange ham on top of potatoes. In a small bowl, mix cottage cheese and cheddar cheese. Spread over ham. Bake until mixture is heated through, about 30 minutes.
Lightly brown ham cubes and onion in shortening. Add green beans and tomato juice to cover. Heat to bubbling, then reduce heat and simmer until beans are cooked. Serve in soup bowls. Pumpernickel bread goes really well with this soup!

I am wondering if anyone has any ideas for using leftover cooked ham. There is only hubby and myself and we have plenty of leftover ham so I wondered about a nice soup or something. Does anyone have any ideas using ingredients that most would have on hand?

Thaw the pierogies in water. Brown the onion and ham in a pan in the butter. Add the pierogies and cook a few minutes to brown all together. Enjoy. By Danielle from PA (01/10/2006)
Cook and drain macaroni, following package directions; place in a large mixing bowl. In a large skillet, melt butter over medium low heat. Add chopped onion, mushrooms, and chopped green bell pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, for 3 to 4 minutes, or until onion is softened and mushrooms are browned. Add skillet mixture to macaroni with chopped olives, shredded cheese, sour cream, salt and pepper, ham, and milk; stir gently to mix thoroughly. Transfer to a shallow 1 1/2-quart baking dish. Sprinkle buttered bread crumbs over the top of macaroni and ham casserole; bake at 350 degrees F for 25 to 35 minutes, or until ham casserole is bubbly and breadcrumbs are lightly browned.

Start layering these items in a glass oven proof dish beginning with a little butter. Cover the bottom with the potatoes, sprinkle on the onions and ham and a little flour. The flour thickens up everything. Continue making layers (don't forget the butter) until the dish is full. Make sure the very top has a little butter on it. Now pour in milk slowly all around until the dish has about 1/4 inch of milk in it. Not too much and not too little or it will spill over in your oven. Cover the dish and bake on 350 for about an hour depending on the size of dish you are using.
Check the tenderness of the potatoes occasionally by sticking a fork in them. If you want your potatoes a little brown on top, uncover the dish during the last 10-15 min. of cooking. Allow the dish to stand and cool for awhile so the flour and milk have a chance to thicken. This casserole tastes better the next day when all the flavors have had a chance to "meld" together. This, to me, is a complete meal, but you can serve it however you like. (01/11/2006)
