Easter 2020 will be one to remember. Unable to celebrate in person with extended family or church friends, families have had to find new ways to celebrate. I was given the opportunity to perform a mystery shop at the Honey Baked Ham store. Included in the shop was reimbursement for a 7-8lb ham (which is designed to feed 11-12 people). I have a family of 4, with 2 little ones who don’t eat much meat. That means we had SO much ham to eat. That began my research of recipes and uses for ham. Here’s my compilation of the best and most unique uses for ham. Click any picture for the full recipe.
9 Uses for Ham
I’ll start with the obvious, but sandwiches are fun and can be easy to elevate. Start with some homemade or specialty bread. We love Hawaiian bread in our house! You can even use leftover rolls or make biscuits or cornbread. Add different cheeses, veggies, and sauces for endless combinations.
Omelets and egg scrambles are a perfect fit for leftover ham. Dice it up and add with your favorite cheese and veggies.
Casseroles are great because you can usually prep it and forget it or even freeze for later.
So many options to go with potatoes, including hashes, scalloped and au gratin varieties, and even baked potatoes with diced ham.

Homemade pizza can’t be beat! Go with a traditional ham and pineapple or any combination of flavors.
These muffin tin quiche are great because you can cook a big batch, freeze them, then warm up a few for a quick breakfast.
