Soliciting suggestions to use up a lot of leftover Easter ham.
these should get you started!
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.
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!
