What to make with leftover ham?
The one thing about ham is that once you make it, you really are stuck with leftovers for the next seven to 10 business days (which is a pretty delicious problem to have). But if you’re wondering how to use up all those leftovers after your pork feast, ham is super versatile, and these ham recipes will have you re-thinking how you use ham. Firstly, ham makes a surprisingly delicious topping for pork soups and ramens, and it makes for a pretty unreal broth too! Then there’s the salads, which of course will only ever be improved by a huge hunk of ham on top. You can also transform your leftover ham into delicious, juicy dumplings, or use it on top of a bed of noodles, or in a pork stir-fry. You can use it to spice up your breakfast meal preps and it’s perfect when paired with eggs.
Ham is seriously underrated, and seriously versatile, so next time you find yourself cursing the surplus of ham taking up space in your fridge – come back and check on these ham recipes, I guarantee you won’t be disappointed!
