What To Do With That Leftover Ham

You had a beautiful ham dinner.

Now it’s over. What are you going to do with what’s left – just reheat it?

No way!

Try this yummy ham and beans recipe that makes great use of your leftover ham and combines it with delicious flavors and makes it feel like an entirely new meal.

That’s because it is!

Don’t get stuck in the heat and repeat rut. Give that ham a makeover and create something that’s different.

This time of year calls for lots of ham dinners (Easter, springtime get-togethers/celebrations) so let’s make the most of them!

Get ready to ham it up!

Fall Means Ham Time

No, not Hammer Time – HAM TIME!

Although Hammer Time is fun, too.

These autumn days always have me craving a lovely smoked ham. So filling and fulfilling.

And one of my favorite things to do with a ham is dress it up with a special glaze. Certainly you can enjoy a tried and true, never-miss pineapple ham glaze, but I REALLY like this maple bourbon glaze.

It’s got a robust kick that makes it really feel like fall to me. You can get this yummy ham glaze recipe here. And try some of your own creations, too.

What are some of your favorite fall cooking traditions?
