Scads of leftover ham?

We have been having prime rib for Christmas dinner for the last couple of years, so there haven’t been any leftovers, thankyouverymuch!!

Dang, I love leftovers, especially when there are a couple of good Once a Month Cooking (OAMC) recipes that I can make in double or triple batches, enjoying one tonight and others later when I’m in a hurry. So here are some recipes to help you use up your leftover ham, if you’re fortunate enough to have some, in style. A couple are OAMC recipes, and others are for serving fresh tonight!

Cranberry Ham Grill – an OAMC delight

Baked Jambalaya – freezes really well for OAMC cooking

Quick Jambalaya - for tonight

Red Pepper Risotto with Italian Sausage – substitute chopped ham for the sausage…you won’t have to spend time browning it!

Beet Greens with Canadian Bacon – substitute finely chopped ham for the bacon

Ham and Squash Stew - a delicious variation on Turkey and Squash stew

Spicy Split Pea Soup - nutritious
