Gale,  Scalloped potatoes with ham and cheese. I also save the bone and some of the ham
to make split pea soup or bean soup.  I love a swiss cheese and ham sandwich with dark
bread, mustard and mayo.

Thanks for the suggestions Carol,The scalloped potatoes are a good option.I found a recipe that calls for potatoes,cabbage and ham,that sounds good too.I also found a recipe for ham salad.I know for sure I'll make bean soup,the bone is in the freezer for a week or two from now.I'm Hungarian and we make our bean soup with pinto beans and we some times put nokedli in also.Nokedli are spatzelle or dumplings.

This is SO good and it would be a great way to use the ham scraps and bone.
(I never have a ham bone so I use chunks of boneless ham or small bone-in ham slices -- whatever I can get)

HAM AND CABBAGE SOUP  (it doesn't look or taste like it sounds)

1 meaty ham bone or 2 large ham hocks
About 6 cups of water -- (I use canned chicken broth)
1 (16 oz) can whole tomatoes (I buy the already chopped tomaatoes)
1/2 tsp dried thyme, crushed
1/2 tsp dried marjoram crushed
1 large onion chopped
1 cup diced carrots
1 cup diced potatoes
3 cups shredded cabbage
salt and pepper to taste

Put ham and water in a stock pot. Chop tomatoes and add
along with their liquid.  Add thyme and majoram.  Bring to a boil,
lower heat, cover and simmer for about 1 1/2 hours or until ham
is falling off bone. Remove ham and set aside until cool
enough to handle.
Add vegetables*, except cabbage, simmer about 30 minutes or
until vegetables are tender.  Meanwhile remove skin and bones
from ham and cut into bite sized pieces.  Add to pot along with
cabbage.  Simmer 25-30 minutes or until cabbage is tender.  
Season with salt and pepper.  Makes about 6 servings. 
This freezes very well - I always double the recipe and
freeze in heavy plastic bags.
*I save all my leftover veggies in a jar in the freezer. 
I dump those into any soup I'm making.

I love scalloped potatoes with ham.  If you like mac & cheese, ham can be added to that too.

I cube it up and mix it in with scalloped potatoes!  My husband likes it re-fried with eggs in the morning.  It's also a nice topping on a salad.

You can toss some of the diced ham into a frittata. I always make a large frittata (8 eggs, egg whites) because it refrigerates well and I can eat it for lunch the next day.

I just got email from Campbell's soup ..... their subject was leftover ham!  And here's one recipe that really sounds good ....

Ham and Pasta Skillet

 
1 can (10 3/4 ounces) Campbell's® Condensed Broccoli Cheese Soup (Regular or 98% Fat Free)
2 cups broccoli florets or 1 package (10 ounces) frozen broccoli cuts, thawed
1 cup milk
1 tablespoon spicy brown mustard
1 1/2 cups cooked ham cut into strips
2 1/4 cups medium shell-shaped pasta, cooked and drained

1. Heat the soup, milk, mustard and broccoli in a 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat to a boil. Reduce the heat to low. Cook for 5 minutes or until the broccoli is tender.

2. Stir the ham and pasta in the skillet and cook until the mixture is hot and bubbling.
Makes: 4 servings (about 1 1/2 cups each).



   Kitchen Clip
   Spicy brown mustard gives this skillet a touch of "bite," but if you don't have it or you want a more mellow mustard taste, use whole grain or prepared yellow versions instead

Most of the time, I save the ham bone and use it to flavor bean soup.  I just buy one of those little packets of beans and seasonings from the grocery store and put the ham bone in it.  Occassionally, I give the bone to my mom.  She loves to make homemade baked beans with it.  (Sorry, I don' t have her recipe).

As for the leftover ham,  sometimes I grind it up and make ham salad for sandwiches other times, I cut it up and put it in the freezer.  then I pull it out later and make a casserole with it or throw it in to my cabbage and noodles to give it some flavor.

I like making a ham spread for sandwiches but my husband never wanted anything but ham and cheese sandwiches.  I like the mix of ham, a bit of mayo some pickles, onion and possible a bit of celery all processed together and spread on bread.  All the same ingredients as the ham sandwich but oh so much tastier I think.
Growing up if it was not a sandwich with sliced ham, Swiss cheese, mustard and some pickles for the sandwich then my Mom would make the spread.  I think that is why I like the spread it reminds me of Mom.

Split pea soup..must be made with yellow split peas not the green ones.
Bean soup is another winner for using up the ham.

How about ham in a quiche? I find that it works well with Swiss cheese in the egg and milk (or half and half) mixture. You can also add frozen spinach that has been thawed and moisture squeezed out!
