Find delicious family dinner recipes to make with leftover ham
My family loves a spiral sliced ham. We only eat ham for dinner twice a year – Christmas and Easter – and each time we always have SO MUCH leftover! I have a few go to recipes that the whole family loves. They are delicious, family friendly, and can easily be made with leftover ham.
Ham for Dinner
It’s a funny story, really, how we started eating Ham every year for our big holidays. I had never really liked ham as a child so I didn’t make it for my family.
While doing my Christmas dinner grocery shopping one year, I had my son with me, he was about four years old at the time. A woman at the grocery store was passing out samples for a spiral sliced ham and my son took one. In fact, he took so many samples from her that I felt obligated to buy a ham!
That year was the first time we had Ham for our Christmas dinner and the kids all loved it so much that it has become a staple in our house for Christmas and Easter.
The only problem…a half of ham leaves a lot of leftovers, even when you have a family of 6.
