We make egg salad once a year. Bet you guessed that it’s the week following the annual visit from that famous bunny, who leaves colorful, hard-cooked eggs all around our house — in the yard if the snow isn’t too deep.
Likewise, I have favorite recipes I pull out annually following the big Holiday Ham Dinner. I make ‘em once a year and they’ve become almost as much a tradition as what we do on Easter itself.
In my estimation, there are probably about 101 ways to use up a bone-in ham. Boneless, too – although I favor a ham bone to make a rich soup stock.
Favorite Leftover Ham Recipes
While I love a thick sliced ham sandwich any day – here are our favorite ham dishes I rotate from year to year that I hope you love too. The great thing about ham is you can use it to make the ultimate in comfort food (think mac’ n cheese with ham) or dress it up in elegant appetizers or entrees!
