Ideas For Using Up Leftovers for Your Honey Ham

For leftovers, I love to eat ham a day or two as is and then incorporate it into other dishes so we don’t get tired of eating the exact same things. I like to dice up the ham and create omelets or even just scrambled eggs for ham for breakfast. For lunch and dinners, I might use some ham for ham and beans, ham and dumplings, toss it in with some au gratin potatoes, or Instant Pot Chicken Cordon Bleu. It helps you to utilize the leftovers but not feel like you are stuck eating a ham the same way over and over again. 

This ham is great for any holiday or a weekday meal. I know if you make this you will really enjoy the sweet and savory taste of this juicy ham. Happy cooking!
