Leftovers never tasted so good. Make sure you buy a ham bigger than you need for Easter, because I’m sharing a collection of leftover ham recipes today that your family is going to love!
Leftover Ham Recipes
Ham is one of my favorite holiday dinners. As I’ve mentioned before, my late father-in-law used to do the holiday cooking. He loved to cook and a meal made by him was a genuine treat. We live next door to my in-laws so we have always spent most of our holidays with them.
Before my father-in-law passed away, I am almost embarrassed to admit that I had cooked very few hams. And no turkeys at all! I’ll let you in on another secret…I don’t bake much either because my mother-in-law, my daughter and my husband are all really good at baking. What I am good at is throwing a healthy meal together quickly.
However, I’m also a quick study. This year I knew I’d be making a Christmas ham, so we had an early “test” ham. You’re never going to hear anyone in my family complain about ham for dinner!
I’ve now made this Orange Marmalade Ginger Glazed Ham three times, and it has gotten rave reviews every time. If you’re looking for a Easter ham recipe, your family will love this one!
Now if you’re like me, you always purchase a bigger ham than you need so you can have the leftovers. Today I’ve created a collection of delicious leftover ham recipes from some of my favorite food blogger friends. From side dishes to main dishes, to breakfast, lunch and dinner, I’ve got you covered!

I might just make a ham so I can have these leftovers. The kale soup sounds fabulous and I know my guys would flip for a few of the others.
Thanks for partying with us this week on #TastyTuesdays
