I cooked a half ham for our Christmas Eve dinner. It was just for the two of us so you can imagine the amount of leftovers we had. We usually make bean soup which I will today. The beans have been soaking overnight.
I purposely soaked too many beans for the soup. So they got put in freezer bags to use to make minestrone soup for lunches later this month.
We ate some cold ham with veggies this week.Then there is always au gratin or scalloped potatoes to put it in.
But I was looking for a new to us recipe and I found it. We made them last night and they were so delicious that Hubby couldn’t stop raving about them. He even ate three. I had two and we will split the last three for lunch today. They will reheat beautifully in the toaster oven or air fryer. The recipe is Leftover Ham Turnovers .
So if you are looking for a new recipe for all that ham, try them. I don’t think that you will be disappointed. They are so easy to make. I just made up the filling in the morning and put them together before dinner. The best part is that I had all of the ingredients already in our home.
The soup I make today will use up more of the ham plus
the meat on the bone. The rest I will food saver into meal size
portions for some meals in January and February.
I hope you are having wonderful holidays. I am off to get my bean soup in the crock pot.
Do you have any favorite leftover ham recipes that you could share with all of us? Please feel free to leave them in the comments.
