You cook up a large ham for holiday dinner! It is delicious, but now you have all this leftover ham. Here are some ideas for how to use that leftover ham. These are my top 5 recipes for using leftover ham.
With all the other food that you had for the holiday, like Sweet Potato Casserole, Green Bean Casserole, Hashbrown Casserole, Scalloped Potatoes, Apple Walnut Cranberry Salad, and of course, Carrot Cake, there is only so much room left for the Peach Glazed Ham or Brown Sugar Pineapple Ham.
In addition, often the smallest ham you can buy at the grocery store is more than a family of four can eat.
Therefore, you need some delicious recipes that transform the leftover ham into delicious new recipes so your family won’t even know that they are eating leftovers.
You can transform the leftover ham into soups, salads, casseroles, sandwiches, and more! And the good news is that you can freeze ham to serve at a later date as well. You can keep cooked ham in the refrigerator for 3 or 4 days, but you can keep it up to 3 months if you freeze it.
The best way to store ham for use later is to slice it off the bone or cut it into chunks. Then store it in freezer-safe, airtight containers either in the refrigerator or in the freezer.
Reheat ham, place it in a baking dish and cover it in foil, and heat it low and slow in a preheated oven at 275 degrees F. until it is warm.
