10 Delicious ham recipes…using leftover Easter ham!

10 Delicious recipes using leftover Easter ham

Mmm…I'm still dreaming of our delicious Easter dinner. However, if you're anything like me, you get sick pretty quick of eating plain ol' ham every night. And…if you're anything like me you absolutely HATE wasting. Anything. Ever. Lucky for you I got a little creative! I scoured the web to find 10 delicious ham recipes using leftover Easter ham to make sure you don't waste a single piece!

When I started getting sick of our ham I put it in a gallon ziplock and froze it. I take out the ham as-needed for the recipes, and it's tasted delicious and fabulous without any issues at all. Here are some that I've tried and approve, or plan to try very soon:

Ham & Potato Soup

I made this ham & potato soup recipe earlier this week and MAN OH MAN it was soooo good. I finished the last of the leftovers today, and yes, they were still delicious 4 days later.

Ham Fried Rice

You can't go wrong with fried rice! The photo above is from this high-rated ham-fried rice recipe. I opted to go even quicker and simpler. Here's how I made mine:

I cooked 2C white rice. Meanwhile in oil I sautéed diced carrots, diced red peppers (from the freezer), and diced green onion until soft. I set that aside in a bowl. I cooked up 2 eggs in that same pan, then added the ham and veggies, splashed a little soy sauce in there. I fried up the rice in some hot oil and soy sauce. Once fried I added the veggies/eggs, served with some Costco potstickers from the freezer, and BAM! Delicious, quick, and cheap.

Simple Ham Quiche

This quiche recipe is awesome because it's SO easy. We don't do broccoli in ours because really, we just aren't that healthy around here. My favorite quiche recipe is my 10-minute mini quiche recipe that I use for EVERYTHING.

Unfortunately both of these pins don't lead to any recipe or anything, but it looks pretty self-explanatory. Just be sure to soak the sticks first, maybe drizzle the kabobs with teriyaki sauce or brush with brown sugar for a little flava-flave, and grill until caramelized and heated through.

So there you go! I hope you enjoy these recipes as much as I did or plan to. And please, for Heaven's sake, don't waste a single piece of that fabulous ham!
