Recipes for Leftover Ham and our Menu Plan

How was your Christmas? Did you enjoy your time with your family and all the good food?

We had a GREAT Christmas! And lots of good food too! I cooked Ham and the usually side dishes, Sweet Potatoes, Mashed Potatoes, Gravy, Corn, Biscuits, and of course, dessert.

I thought you all might like some recipes to use up some of your leftover Ham.

Soup and Sandwich night is not only delicious, but also easy and inexpensive. How about a Grilled Ham & Cheese and Potato Soup? Erin at $5 Dinners always has such yummy recipes!

This Cheddar Cheese Soup with Vegetables that Jessica from Good (Cheap) Eats made looks yummy! And I agree with her, you could add a little diced ham too.

Make-Ahead meals are perfect this time of year! Cheesy Pasta Ham & Peas can be made up and frozen for another time.

I have never made anything like these Ham and Pineapple Melts but they look like they would be a hit! I found them on Closet Cooking via Once a Month Mom.

Visit my Ham Leftover Linky from last April for more great ideas!

As 2010 draws to a close, I’m taking a little time this week to be with my boys and plan ahead for 2011. I have some great things in the works for Hoosier Homemade…I’m sure you will be happy!

I will be sharing another New Year’s Eve Cupcake tomorrow for Cupcake Tuesday, then the rest of the week will mostly be “The Best of 2010″.

So tell me…what were some of your favorites in 2010? Baking, Decorating or Cupcakes??

  1. Love all the ham recipes! We have SO MUCH ham leftover and we didn’t even provide the ham this year. Just kept being given ham to take home. I will definitely have to make some of these and freeze them.

    Merry Christmas!

    We too are using a bunch of ham leftovers this week. You are organized and planning meals. I am going to put the leftovers on the counter and tell my husband to help himself. :)

  6. I noticed in my stats that I received some traffic from your site. It must be from your April Ham link-up. Thanks and Happy New Year!
