Recipes to Use Up Leftover Ham

Easter was last week and you celebrated with a ham. Now seven days later, everyone is more than a little tired of it. You've sliced it, diced it, baked it fried it and you're out of ideas. Small problem, however. You bought a 15 pounder and there are still leftovers. You can freeze it, but why not try some of these recipes to use up that leftover ham in new and delicious ways. Here's one I forgot--halve and clean acorn squash. Fill cavity with cubed ham, chopped apples, dried cranberries and butter (watching calories? use olive oil or sunflower oil). Sprinkle on allspice, nutmeg and corriander. Feeling brave? Add green pepper. Drizzle with maple syrup. Bake. Or make pizza with ham and fresh-diced pineapple, green pepper, tomatoes and onion. Top with cheddar cheese. Recipes to Use Up Leftover Ham
