    1. You are a lucky duck! I'm jealous - we went out. I would make mac and cheese with ham ala Pierre Franey (see COTM February 2011), ham salad in a food processor and of course pea soup! All of these freeze beautifully.

      1. For me leftover ham is the best part of making a ham for any holiday. About now I'd love to have a couple of sunnyside eggs with a piece of fried ham nice and hot where the ham's moist, and the edges slighty burned. Or a english muffin with fried ham, a poached egg and hollandaise sauce, or even better, milk gravy! Those lovely little potato rolls smeared with cranberry converve warmed ham with a tad of mayo & a couple healthy grinds of black pepper. Make a ham salad or split pea soup, I hope you have a ham bone, because it makes the best pot of beans, white, pink, red any color and you'll have a wonderful soup!

        1. Ham and cheddar biscuits
          Ham, peas and bow tie pasta
          Ham and potato casserole
          Deviled ham salad sandwiches
          Ham and bean soup
          Mac-n-cheese and ham and tomatoes
          Ham and cheese breakfast casserole
          Macaroni salad with ham, shredded cheese and pineapple

          Freeze some chunks or cubes to use for seasoning green beans or soup beans.
