5 Fantastic Dinner Recipes to Make With Leftover Ham

ham and pineapple pizzaGot ham? Yeah, me too, and lots of it. It was great for the Easter feast yesterday, and my sandwich at lunch was fantastic, but I can only take so many sandwiches.

Fortunately, ham is one of those great, versatile proteins that lends itself well to a variety of dishes. It's not a meat I buy very often, but I'm always glad when I have it on hand, and vow to remember to buy it more often.

Here are five of my favorite recipes that use ham. You do have to eat something besides all of that Easter candy, you know.


Ham and Broccoli Quiche

Make one for dinner and freeze one for brunch down the road.

Pineapple and Ham Pizza

The sweet and salty combination is incredible, and it's a nice change from pepperoni. 

Ham and Potato Soup

Creamy and loaded with vegetables and cheese, this soup makes a fabulous dinner any night of the week.

Pasta With Peas, Ham, and Cream

Serve with a simple salad, and dinner is done.

Ham Fried Rice

Who needs Chinese takeout when you can make this instead?
