Today I have recipes for using leftover ham.
1-1/2 lbs. ham
1 hard-boiled egg
1 stalk celery roughly chopped
2 tsp. sweet pickle relish
3/4 c. mayonnaise
1 Tbls. mustard
Assorted crackers and/or soft rolls
Put the ham, egg, celery and onion into a blender or food processor (season with a bit of pepper). Pulse (short, quick pulses) 20-25 times to mince.
Combine remaining ingredients into a separate bowl (sweet pickle relish, mayonnaise and mustard). Then stir in minced ham mixture.
Cover and chill.
6 eggs, beaten
1/2 tsp. pepper
1 tsp. butter
1/2 c. chopped roasted asparagus
1/2 c. chopped country ham
1 Tbls. chopped parsley
Preheat oven to broil setting.
In medium size bowl, using a fork, blend together eggs, Parmesan, pepper and salt. Heat 12-inch non-stick, oven safe sauté pan over medium high heat. Add butter to pan and melt. Add asparagus and ham to pan and sauté for 2 to 3 minutes. Pour egg mixture into pan and stir with rubber spatula. Cook for 4 to 5 minutes or until the egg mixture has set on the bottom and begins to set up on top. Sprinkle with parsley.
Place pan into oven and broil for 3 to 4 minutes, until lightly browned and fluffy. Remove from pan and cut into 6 servings. Serve immediately.
Hot Ham and Cheese Sandwiches
4 Large hamburger buns
2 Tbls. butter
1 lb. sliced ham
8 Slices Cheese, Mozzarella, Swiss or Cheddar
1/4 c. mayonnaise
2 Tbls. Dijon mustard
Preheat your oven’s broiler to high. Split open the hamburger buns and place on a large baking sheet. Coat the buns evenly with the butter. Toast under preheated broiler for 1-2 minutes until golden.
Switch the oven broiler off and preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Layer half of the ham slices evenly on the bottom of each bun. Top with a slice of cheese. Repeat these layers one more time. Place the top buns on the sandwiches.
Bake the sandwiches for 7-10 minutes, until cheese is melted.
In a small bowl mix together the mayonnaise and mustard and serve with the hot sandwiches.
