This past weekend was for several people, the celebration of Easter. As a premier butcher shop in MA, our team at The Main Course Market knows that ham is a staple of this celebration. However, without the large family gatherings that we’re accustomed to, you may be faced with more leftovers than ever. And, let’s face it, there’s only so much ham one person can eat. However, in the crazy times, we’re living, it’s more essential than ever to utilize those Easter leftovers. That’s why we’re dedicating this article to leftover ham ideas!
Who says pizza is only for lunch and dinner
One of the best things about ham is that you can eat it any time of the day. In fact, one of our favorite recipes brings ham up front and center for breakfast. First, let us start by saying we’ve always been fans of pizza for breakfast. Then combined with scrambled eggs, diced ham, onion, peppers, and bubbly baked cheese – whoa – you have yourself a breakfast winner!
Tropical vacations for lunch
While many of us have been forced to cancel our vacation, that doesn’t mean we can’t (in spirit) still be on that tropical island. A staple of many islands is the variety of fresh fruits – like pineapple – that’s available. What better compliment for ham then freshly chopped pineapple? Perfect, if we may say so!
Bring home a bit of the tropics with Hawaiian quesadillas for lunch. Quick and easy, combine diced ham and pineapple with your favorite blend of cheese, toasted to perfection, and served with fruit salsa. All that will be missing is the coconut beverage garnished with the little paper umbrella!
Don’t toss those vegetables
If you’re on the verge of losing fresh vegetables, consider whipping up a cobb salad for lunch. Not only will this meal provide a pack of protein, but it will make room in your refrigerator! A traditional cobb salad includes a blend of greens topped with diced ham, boiled egg, bacon, tomato, avocado, and cheese.
Casseroles are a dinner staple
The classic broccoli, ham, and cheddar casserole is a staple for dinners everywhere. However, the beautiful characteristic of a casserole is that you can add pretty much any ingredient you have handy into the dish! Combined with potatoes, rice, or noodles, casseroles are a comfort food staple that is quick and easy to make!
