10 Ideas For Leftover Ham


  • Diced ham, green onion, and Gruyere cheese incorporated into an omelette or scrambled eggs.
  • Replace bacon or sausage with sliced ham in your favorite breakfast meal.
  • Diced ham “hash” pan fried with onions, garlic, diced potatoes and a dash of salt, pepper, and dill. 


  • Diced ham and grated cheddar for a grilled ham and cheese sandwich.
  • Cold ham salad with diced ham, sweet peas, diced swiss, apple and celery, mayo, dill, salt and pepper.
  • Finely diced ham, spinach, softened cream cheese, salt, pepper, and a dash of lemon juice mixed together and spread over a whole wheat tortilla.


  • Diced and mixed into homemade mac and cheese, topped with panko bread crumbs.
  • Diced and served generously over baked potatoes with tangy barbeque sauce, butter, sour cream, sharp cheddar, and green onions.
  • Julienned and mixed in with lightly steamed broccoli, garlic, and melted cheddar cheese. Broil for a minute to get a crunchy top.

Nope, you’re not at the wrong blog..I promise.

Tonight we’re going to have breakfast for dinner…and not just any breakfast, but a traditional Mexican breakfast…YU-MEE! or, excuse me, SABROSA!

Huevos con Chorizo

(using Chorizo Fresco, the soft variety as opposed to the smoked, hard variety)


  • 1 lb chorizo
  • 8 eggs
  • splash of milk


  • Preheat skillet to medium (don’t use an iron skillet, it will be a PAIN to clean!).
  • Remove chorizo from casing and place in pan.
  • Cook until firm, resembling finely ground beef, about 7-8 minutes.
  • Drain in colander, return to pan.
  • In medium bowl, whisk eggs and milk together until fluffy.
  • Pour eggs into pan, scramble eggs mixing thoroughly with chorizo.

Serve with warm corn tortillas, refried beans, and diced fried potatoes for a complete meal. Garnish with any or all of the following: cheddar cheese or queso fresco, sour cream, salsa, tobasco, green onion.

About the Cook

I'm a busy wife and mom who knows the value of a meal that can be prepared quickly. I prefer to cook with whole foods and you will almost never find a prepared food in my recipes or my pantry.

This blog started as a way to recall recipes that I've created and now I am excited to share them with you! Bon Apetit!
