Creamy vegetable salad and cheesy potato ham crisp are two tasty recipes that are perfect for using up leftover ham. Ham added to potato salad, casseroles, soups, or vegetable omelets is also a delicious and simple way to use up leftovers.
Mix together chunks of ham, red or yellow bell pepper, finely diced onion, and raisins. Stir sour cream, yogurt, a little fresh or dry dill, black pepper, oregano, and salt together for the dressing, and mix with the ham and veggies. Serve the salad on top of some crunchy, torn romaine leaves for a light meal. Pasta, cubed cheese, halved grapes, and apple cubes all make delicious additions to this salad.
For a mouth-watering lunch or dinner, whip up the cheesy potato ham crisp. Wash and peel a couple of Yukon gold potatoes and cut into 1-inch cubes. Cook in boiling water until tender, and then drain and let cool. Heat a little oil in a pan, dice up a small onion, and add it to the oil. Cook till tender, typically about 10 minutes. Once the potato is cooled, mix it together with the onion and cubes of ham in a bowl. Add black pepper and herbs to taste. Heat more butter or oil in the pan, and spread the potato mixture out. Cover with a thin layer of cheddar cheese, and cook until the cheese on top is melted.
