ideas for appetizer using leftover smoked ham?

brucemac707 Dec 23, 2010 11:14 AM

I have a bunch of leftover smoked ham, and need to bring an appetizer/snack for Christmas dinner. (It's going to be an informal spread of light dishes and finger foods) Any ideas?

    i"m gonna vary from everyone else. I say layer slices of ham with swiss cheese and thousand island dressing on spring roll wrappers. Roll them up and bake!

      How about chopping up the ham in a food processor and making a tasty ham salad. Spoon it in to homemade mini cream puff shells, or purchased filo cups.

        Potted ham aka deviled ham is very good and easy to make. The old recipes call for mustard, cayenne and ground mace, no mayo, then ground and baked. Delicious on crackers or in celery. I have also mashed the deviled ham w/cooked egg yolks and a bit of mayo, then spooned into the egg white for deviled ham and eggs.

          ham biscuits. make tiny biscuits and put ham in the middle--like a little sandwich/slider. very classic Southern.

              I vote for the biscuits and ham. Cream biscuits are wonderful and there are many recipes online. Might want to offer two different spreads--maybe a honeyish mustard and a hot one.
