Ham for the Holidays

One of the things I love about the holidays is the food. One of the things I hate about the holidays is the food. It never ends. We always make more than enough, which leaves us eating leftovers for days. I don’t know about you, but I can only eat so many turkey or ham sandwiches.

Here are 3 meal ideas for using up that leftover holiday ham:

1.     Breakfast burritos

Dice the leftover ham, and mix it with hash browns or roasted potatoes, scrambled eggs, and cheese. Feel free to add anything else you have on hand like sautéed onions and peppers, avocados, and salsa. Keep this mixture in the refrigerator for easy assembly in the mornings, or fill tortillas for an easy grab-and-go breakfast.

2.     Quiche

I love quiche for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Here are some of my favorite recipes for quiche. The last one calls for bacon, which is always a good thing, but ham works well too.




 3.     Ham and cheese croissants

Use the unbaked, refrigerated croissant dough found in your grocery store. Separate into 4 squares. Place diced ham and grated cheese in the middle and fold the edges over. Bake according to the directions on the package of croissants. Enjoy! Tip: It’s also delicious with brown mustard on top.
