Recipe: Using leftover ham

Ellen Lewers shares her farmhouse recipes with Sooke News Mirror readers.

If you had baked ham for Easter this year and have too many leftovers, here is a recipe to help. This recipe will work at any time of the year, whenever you have too much ham.

Method:

Slice the ham into 1 in. thick slices.

Combine 1/3 cup brown sugar, 1 tsp. dry mustard and rub the mixture on the ham slices. Adjust the recipe for the number of slices. This is good for 2 slices.

Place in baking dish large enough to hold the slices without putting them on top of each other.

Cover with milk and bake at a temp. of 325’ F for an hour to 1 1/2 hours.

Serve with left over mashed potatoes, mixed with some of those lovely green chives or thyme from your garden which is now sprouting, or you may choose to put some of those hard boiled eggs, chopped up, into the potato mixture, with our without cheese.

Put the potatoe mixture in a baking pan and cover with cheese of choice.

Bake for 1 hour, along side the ham mix up a fresh salad from those greens now growing in the garden.

Serve the ham with some of that lovely apple sauce you put away last fall and enjoy.
