Time for... leftover ham!

We had an 8-pound ham for the two of us and, not surprisingly, we have a lot of leftover ham. Short of ham sandwiches and tossing diced ham with pasta, what am I supposed to do with it all? The ham bone will go into a pot of 7-bean soup, but I doubt that will make a dent in the actual meat pile.
I can't be the only one with leftover Easter ham. What are you doing with yours?
Ham and scalloped potatoes.
Thinly sliced peeled potatoes
2 cups of whole milk with salt and black pepper to taste. , simmer to reduce, stirring constantly
layer potatoes and ham in casserole dish, and then add the reduced milk to the ham and potatoes. I bake mine covered with aluminum foil in the convection oven for an hour @ 375-degrees, and cook uncoverd for the last 10-15 mins I put a glass pyrex dish under the casserole dish to catch any overflow when cooking.
I serve mine with garlic bread. One of my favorite comfort foods while growing up
I like what we refer to as "Ham Balls"--basically Ham Loaf made into baseball sized meatballs. Made with ground ham, pork and beef. Graham crackers for the filler. Sweet sauce over them made of tomato sauce, brown sugar and vinegar.
Easy ham salad- grind up the ham, some onions and some sweet pickles. A bit of mayo, and you have the makings of a good sandwich
