Leftover honey ham

Hi -- I have several pounds of leftover ham in the fridge. Thoughts on how to use it? I made a pasta dish last night with ham, peas, and bechamel. I thought of the Cooks Illustrated Fish Chowder. Other thoughts?

  1. Chop it up and with some pineapple make a Hawaiian themed fried rice.

    Instead of chicken, make honey ham pot pie.

    Add it to oatmeal, or porridge.

    Omelets or frittata

    1. Do you have the bone too? I just made split pea soup with the bone, and the meat ended up like shredded pork. There was so much, I took half out and put in freezer for gumbo/jumbalaya next month on Mardi Gras. If you don't like split pea soup, any bean soup like Senate Navy Bean would do. I also like to use some if not further cooked via soup to saute to burnt-ness and add to eggs.

      1. Ham and gruyere quiche. Easy to make and they freeze well.

        1. Ham's a great breakfast meat. Fry up as many slices as you need in an iron skillet. Remove ham, deglaze with coffee and reduce a little. WALA! You have ham steaks and redeye gravy. Serve up with some biscuits and eggs cooked your favorite way.

          Such ham steaks are also great for dinner. Serve with stewed greens and baked sweet potatoes or whatever you fancy.
