I make a number of these… but what I do not see is Jambalaya and Red Beans and Rice, which apparently I have not posted and we also do a pineapple ham pizza. 🙂 Still working on our Easter ham. Tonight was the pineapple ham pizza, and tomorrow will use the last of the pineapple in a Pineapple chicken. Oh, and you missed some simple molasses glazed ham steaks. Delicious. I do love ham leftovers obviously.
LOL Skirnir. Thanks for the recipe link!!
