If you find leftovers boring, uninviting or downright “yuck, " then here are some ideas to put the “zing" back into mealtime. With a little creativity your home-cooked meal can easily become a delicious meal another night. There are a six articles in this series, today we are going to look at what you can do with ham.
DINNER - NIGHT ONE: Baked Ham
Using a basic ham (which is also more cost effective), add some zing to the flavor by glazing it with a sauce of whisked-together mango chutney, orange juice and red pepper flakes. Serve with braised artichokes and pureeed cauliflower for a dinner fit for company. If you do not like cauliflower, any winter vegetable would work. Remove the leftover ham from the bone and store in a tightly sealed contained in the refrigerator or freezer.
DINNER - NIGHT TWO: Cheesy Potatoes with Ham
Chop the leftover ham into cubes. In a glass baking dish layer sliced potatoes with the ham, milk and Cheddar cheese. Serve with a green salad. You can also use a blend, or different cheeses, such as gruyere or fontina. This dish is also great served as a leftover as the flavors just keep getting better and better.
