Leftover Ham ? Make this delicious Ham Savory Bake – ideal to serve as lunch or a light dinner
Lunch or light dinner ..?? This Crustless Ham Savory Bake is for you – it is actually very filling so do not let the “light dinner” confuse you. Add one or two sides, or salads and a roll and you are set
I know this recipe by heart, that many times I have made it over the years – but I am sure it was from one of my favorite foodie authors.
Nine out of ten times I would use leftover Ham from a previous meal, but I make this with thinly sliced, deli Ham as well. Now you know how to use up your leftover Easter Ham !
If there happens to be a slice or two left the next morning … it is delicious as a cold (or heat it up) breakfast treat.
