10 Leftover Ham Recipes

We often cook up spiral hams for a Sunday Family dinner but with only 5 of us in the house we end up having lots and lots of leftovers.  Through the years I have gotten really good at using up small batches of ham to cook some really delicious dinners. 




1.  Ham and cheese quiche with or without crust.  



2.  Ham and Pea Macaroni and Cheese or Ham and Broccoli Mac and Cheese



3.  Cordon Blue & Broccoli Casserole



4.  Ham crescent wraps-- I haven't made these in ages but I used to roll out the crescent rolls, top with a bit of ham and some shredded cheese then roll them up and bake them according to the crescent roll package.  

5.  Ham salad-- I like to shred the ham in the food processor and mix with a bit of relish, mayonnaise, and celery. 

6.  Ham, broccoli, and rice casserole-- Using our favorite chicken, broccoli, and rice casserole recipe I just substitute diced ham for the chicken. Delicious!




7.  Ham and corn Sheppard's pie-- I don't have a separate recipe post for this one since it's so easy! I diced up some leftover ham, added two small cans of creamed corn and a 1/2 bag of frozen corn then topped it all off with some leftover mashed potatoes.  I baked it at 350 until browned and piping hot.




8. Macaroni salad with Ham and Cheese



9. Potato and ham chowder--  I use this recipe and just substitute ham in place of the chicken.

  3. We go through so much ham here, it usually ends up in sandwiches but you have given me some great ideas. I love the sound of the Ham, broccoli and rice casserole and putting it in a Shepherd's pie is just genius. x

  5. Ham is my FAVORITE meat, and I am all about the leftovers!! All of these recipes look delicious. And don't forget, you can add it to a bed of healthy greens with some cucumber, tomato, cheese, and salad dressing, and have a chef salad! That's my favorite way to eat the leftovers.

    1. I love stocking up on hams and turkeys during the holidays when they go on sale and keeping them on hand for when we have bigger crowds to feed.

  11. Every time we have ham there are so many leftovers! The ham and potato chowder sounds delicious and so does the lasagna!

  13. Joanne, I love that you have all these recipes for leftovers! I am a big fan of creating new dishes from the leftovers in the fridge! I do like ham, but I usually prefer it by itself instead of mixed into things. That being said, a ham quiche is still right up my alley! Thanks for sharing and linking with me.

    1. I think I could eat quiche nearly every day if it weren't so calorie laden with the delicious crust and thick creamy goodness; I do have a crustless WW quiche but it's just not the same as the original.
