Menu Plan

I don’t really have much to add to my menu plan this week. We are still truckin’ along with soccer, my teenager daughter got a job, and it is still hot in Florida. We do have a lot of leftover ham from Easter dinner, but I haven’t figured out how I’m going to use it. Suggestions welcome.

  1. I use my leftover ham for sandwiches and in the crockpot with beans for different soups and such. We freeze it and use it later, mostly, in later weeks’ menus.

  2. dgsandbjsmom says:

    We freeze our extra most times too and put the bone in the crockpot with a pound of dry beans. We have also rolled up chunked ham and shredded cheese in a pillsbury roll. Fried Egg, ham and cheese on bagels and waffles with ham and eggs if a big hit. My Mom will make loaded hashbrowns loaded (like at the Waffle House) with ham, green peppers, mushrooms, cheese, etc.

  3. Lisa Shockey says:

    I put our left over ham in scalloped potatos. Just add your favorite veg and you have a one dish meal.

  4. I dice it up in 1 and 2 cup portions and freeze. One of our favorites is homemade ham and sour kraut pizza. A local pizza chain offers it and it seems like an odd combo but it is fantastic with regular pizza sauce and mozzarella cheese. Scrambled eggs with ham and cheese is popular here too.

  5. My dad and I just discussed how to use up the leftover ham yesterday. We came up with using it in omelets, a topping for salad, using it for homemade pizza, sandwich’s, ham biscuits for breakfast, eating it as is for leftovers with sides, freezing it to use at a later date……I think that’s all that we came up with but there was a decent amount of variety.

  6. Grandma Lux’s Ham & Potato Pie
    ham- cut into small pieces
    potatoes- sliced
    onion- sliced
    carrots- sliced
    pie crust

    Cook Ham & veggies in a pot until potatoes just tender, not falling apart.
    Spoon into pie pan. Add some juice from pot. Cover with pie crust. Bake as directed on pie crust box/label.

  7. Just saw a post on another food blog last week about this very leftover Easter ham dilemma! Here’s what I found:

    -grilled Hawaiian pizza
    -scalloped sweet potatoes and ham
    -ranchero black and pinto beans
    -ham and cheese frittata
    -pasta with white beans and broccoli

  8. I freeze the ham cut up in small pieces and use when making breakfast casseroles, fritatas (uses left over baked potatoes too), scalloped potatoes (potatoes, onion, cream of mushroom soup, cheese, and ham or smoked sausage), add to homemade mac and cheese, fried rice, omelets, add to green beans with a bit of onion (and sometimes a potato) for a side dish. Use in place of bacon in cheese/bacon muffins, cornbread, or biscuts. “Sub sandwiches” ham and cheese in a bun, wrapped in foil and baked until cheese is melty and bun is toasty.
