Apricot and Honey Ham Glaze
First on the agenda was Apricot and Honey Ham Glaze. I will tell you - this was a real surprise. I liked it! I don't usually like sweet meat but the mustard
in this glaze gives it a good kick. I didn't glaze the whole ham, just a few slices for dinner. No Baking Papa decided this makes an excellent dipping sauce. Will I make this again? You bet, this is a keeper for us.
Curried Ham Popover Pie
For breakfast the next day I made Curried Ham Popover Pie. This is not a keeper for us but it does have potential. Not all is lost, it now has a picture
and another review. Another one bites the dust!
Next up was a recipe of Chef John's.
Honey Mustard Sauce.
Chef John's Honey Mustard Sauce - this is a keeper! (Can you believe this needed a picture?) Great for dipping the ham in and wonderful on ham sandwiches. All the ingredients were in my pantry and it made
a nice step up from the standard mayonnaise mustard combo we usually use.
The next night we had one of the grandkids here....she likes ham so it was ham reheated with mashed potatoes and green beans. You know, those two sauces
mixed together are really good - even better tossed together with the green beans on your plate.
Let me say - there is one good way to use up a bunch of ham - have the grand-kids over! They can power it down like they have never seen food before.
Where do they put all that food?
Here is a recipe that met all my criteria - it needed a picture -
the ingredients were all things I had on hand and it used ham!
Introducing Modern Colcannon!
I used a slightly different approach to this recipe using all the same ingredients. I had a good sized bowl of leftover mashed potatoes and a wedge of
cabbage leftover from making coleslaw. I added a half of an diced onion with 1 Tablespoon of butter to a skillet & sauteed the onion for a couple of minutes - added the cubed ham and the cabbage with 1/4 cup of water. Covered and let the cabbage steam.
Meanwhile I heated the mashed potatoes in the microwave - stirred them and added a Tablespoon of mayonnaise. When the cabbage was almost done - take the lid off and let the juices reduce. Stir in the potatoes. Done! One skillet to clean up and a filling
meal to boot.
By the way - that Honey Mustard sauce is great with this.
Ham in this house REQUIRES Delicious Ham and Potato Soup. An older recipe with a ton on reviews and pictures. If you have not tried it, you must!
I have enough ham set aside for Ham and Orzo Salad - this is a keeper recipe (with a few tweaks) and a favorite of one of my clients. This recipe just
paid for my entire ham!
I will also be making some Split Pea Soup and a Ham and Bean soup but those have to wait. I am a bit souped out so I am freezing the makings for those
until inspiration to make another soup strikes. It might help if the weather would cool off. It has been in the high 70's to low 80's here. Hardly soup weather.
So there you have some ham ideas - I hope this helps stretch those grocery dollars a little bit further.
Now, I am off to shop the ads for next week. I think I am grilling some more chicken with that lovely Apricot Honey Glaze.
