    Baked apples make a great companion to ham in my opinion...

      Something not too dry is usually desirable with a baked ham. Pommes dauphinoise for instance, or califlower cheese, or mac and cheese perhaps?

      Broad (known as fava in the US?) beans in a parsley sauce are great with ham.

          I don't like the new site but you can edit as always.

            I did edit a spelling mistake, but it wouldn't open for second edit when I wanted to add my further contribution. My bad maybe.

          Scalloped potatoes. A salsa/salad of pineapple, red pepper, red onion, cilantro and lime juice. Hmmm, maybe not with the scallloped potatoes - but both dishes are great with ham :)

              I like Foodie's suggestion of mac&cheese, but my wife's standard ham side is sweet potatoes. Hmm, I wonder if you could make scalloped potatoes with both white and sweet varieties?
