Leftover Ham Recipes

Happy Easter! What a wonderful day and I hope you’re getting to spend it with family and friends. This year there’ll be no big dinner for our family, spread out as we are, but I’ll have a chance to spend some one on one time with my husband. We’re actually on our way to Key West to enjoy some R&R. So there may not be a big meal with some delicious ham like this one from Eating Richly but that doesn’t mean that I can’t pass on some delicious recipes for y’all to gobble up.

Ham is the traditional and most popular main dish to have at Easter time. Why? It’s actually because it’s in season! In earlier days, the hams would be cured over the winter and ready to be eaten by the time spring rolled around. Another reason it’s popular is because it’s easy to cook, delicious to eat and large enough to feed a crowd. And no matter what size the crowd, there always seem to be leftovers.

Frequently asked questions on Easter ham:

Ham will last 3-4 days in the refrigerator. If you can’t eat it that quickly then freeze it in air-tight container or heavy duty freezer bags.

Yes you can. A cooked cured ham will keep 1-2 months in the freezer while an cooked uncured ham will keep for 3-4 months.

Wrap it tightly and place in refrigerator as soon as possible. Do not let it sit at room temperature longer than 2 hours.

Leftover Easter ham can be chopped, shredded and ground and even the bone can be used as a base for soup broth. These recipes will inspire you to surprise your family with a “doesn’t taste like leftovers” meal.
