Recipes Using Ham

Baked ham is a popular main course, but don’t forget its versatility when added to everyday dishes. Its succulent flavor can quickly turn ordinary fare into extraordinary meals. Ham can jazz up a variety of foods, including soups and stir-fries. Ham added to a simple pasta recipe makes for a scrumptious dish, and adding it to a stuffed baked potato is sure to bring a smile.

Leftover ham comes in handy to create quick, no-fuss meals on busy weeknights. It’s also a good way to stretch a dollar, because a little bit of ham goes a long way.
