Recipes Using Leftover Ham

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?

Leftover Ham and Pierogies

I thought I would share this really easy and tasty recipe using leftover ham.

Ingredients:

  • 1 box of store bought pierogies
  • a small onion
  • butter
  • left over ham

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.

Recipes Using Leftover Ham

Freeze your ham in little cubes and take out for omelets or seasoning. I also just made an Italian vegetable soup that was really easy and good. Put a bag of frozen mixed vegetables with canned diced tomatoes, ham, water, a couple of beef bouillon cubes and Mrs. Dash in a crock pot and simmer for 8-10 hours or on the stove for a couple of hours.

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.

Fried rice is a good way to used cubed ham leftovers. I just throw some butter in with cooked rice and brown it with a couple of green onions and a cup of diced ham and a scrabbled egg. Fast and easy. (01/10/2006)

Had another thought. I freeze a few 1-2 inch thick slices to use as ham steaks. Freeze them one or two to a freezer bag and then defrost and brown in a skillet for a fast ham and cheese sandwich with a bowl of soup for supper. (01/10/2006)

Well, it depends on the ham. I like to take smoked, sugar cured ham, slice it thin, and brown it on my griddle in a thick pile. Then turn it over and cover it with cheese slices so they can begin to melt (I like good sharp cheddar, but anything will work). Then spread a large burger bun with lots of mayo and barbecue sauce, put the ham and cheese on the bun, and grill the sandwich on the griddle to toast top and bottom and continue to melt cheese. This makes a quick and easy sandwich, though if you use as much mayo and sauce as I do they tend to be messy. (01/11/2006)

I'm another fan of scalloped potatoes and ham. I make my own and it's yummy. Peel and slice the potatoes thin, but not too thin, set aside. Cut up ham into small pieces, set aside. Cut up a stick of butter into small bits (or use less if you want), set aside. Chop up a small onion into really small bits (use less if you're not crazy about onions), set aside. You will also need some white flour and milk.

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)

My grandma used to put the leftover ham/ham bone in a pot covered with water. Add diced onion, sliced carrots and celery, a dollop of ketchup, and some barley. Bring to a boil, then let simmer until the barley was done. Absolutely wonderful on a cold winter day. I still make this comfort food. Yum. (01/11/2006)

Great way to use your leftover ham from Easter! This yummy combo reminds me of stromboli. I guess you could dip it in sauce if desired, but it's not necessary. It's moist and delicious to simply slice and eat.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 40 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour

Ingredients:

  • 1 loaf defrosted bread dough
  • 1/2 cup shredded ham
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped pimento stuffed olives
  • 2 tsp mustard
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 Tbsp water
  • 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • cooking spray
  • 1/8 tsp red pepper (optional)

Steps:

  1. Defrost you bread loaf. Let rise until it doubles in size.
  2. Combine the ham, cheese, olives and pepper and set aside.
  3. Punch down dough and let rest 5 minutes. Roll into a 12 X 8 inch rectangle on lightly floured surface.
  4. Brush mustard over dough leaving a 1/2" margin around edges.
  5. Spread ham mixture over dough.
  6. Beginning on short side, roll up dough jelly roll fashion. You don't need to seal the ends.
  7. Place seam side down and let rise 30 minutes covered (I just used a bowl). Preheat oven to 375 F.
  8. Uncover dough. Combine egg white with 1 Tbsp. water. Brush top of loaf.
  9. Sprinkle with Italian seasoning. Bake 375 F for 30 minutes.
  10. Loosely cover with foil and bake an additional 10 minutes until loaf sound hollow when tapped.
  11. Remove loaf and cool on wire rack a bit. Serve!
