No, not the Kenyan-In-Chief currently polluting 1600 Pennsylvania Ave!

I mean one of these:



Every year for Xmas, my work gives us one of these. Understand, I greatly appreciate it, as I do not suffer from FSA-derangement-syndrome (it's good bulk protein!). About 9 lbs, I believe.


Thing is, you QUICKLY grow tired of ham sammichs, even with the sharp brown mustard & 12-grain/Jewish rye bread God intended for such meat.

It includes the brown sugar packet, which of course is treated to a summary execution, since ham is already quite sweet enough, thank you very fucking much.


So far, my strategy is to render it down to just meat, carving it off the bone & removing as much fat/gristle as possible, splitting it in half, and freezing one part so it doesn't go bad while I eat the other half. Aside from sammiches, I mostly dice it up & put it in omelets: 6 eggs, 1/2+ lb sharp cheddar, maybe bacon, and a metric SHITton of diced ham.

But, is there another path to enlightenment, brothers? Tell me of your fave ham recipes, O Hivemind gurus...

Scalloped potatoes with ham baked in is awesome. Grilled ham and cheese sammiches. Put the bone in with soup beans, and let them cook.

Ham sammich and slice of pineapple on toasted bun is hard to beat.

It's precooked, why would you render it down? That's just going to dry the hell out of it.

I love oven baked ham.

We just bought a 12 pounder and put in the freezer. I have an 8 pounder waiting on Christmas. We had another 8 pounder the week after Thanksgiving. I like to bake it in the oven, slice off pieces, then fry them. We eat on ham breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Sandwiches? I load up a plate and go to town. You don't need anything with ham. Even the fork is optional.

OK, I misspoke. I mean, cut away anything not edible & throw it away, not cook it more. As noted, it's pre-cooked.

Baste with a mixture of about 1 teaspoon ground mustard, 1 tablespoon horse radish, cup brown sugar, and 2 tablespoons of coke. Pour another couple cups of coke in the cooker and slow cook at low heat for about 6 hours or so.


Damned good.

You will not be disappointed. Some variation of that has been in my family for generations. Guess I'd better learn it before the recipe is lost.

I make a pretty good ham and cheese lasagna, replace the beef with ham cubes, add a can or two of Campbell's cheddar cheese soup instead of cans of diced tomatoes, and make as normal.

Comes out pretty delicious.

I bought some of those country ham slices, the directions on the package said to pan fry them and serve. They were so salty I couldn't eat them. .

You're doing it wrong. You soak in water for a couple of hours before you cook it.
(or even overnight - whole ham you soak overnight)

Trust me... Also, Red Eye Gravy...

Country ham varies greatly in saltiness.

If it's too much, you can scrape a lot of it off as you're frying it. Or you can soak it for a bit beforehand.

I recommend making some red eye gravy when you fry that up too.

I get one every year just for the hell of it and cook myself a holiday style meal on a random day. Mashed potatoes cranberry sauce and such. I can eat meals for a week off a ham. Ham sammiches of course, ham and eggs, ham with my Kraft Mac and cheese, ham cut up on a salad chef style. I just remove as much as I need from the fridge each meal after I have warmed it to glaze it. I like the scalloped potato idea mentioned earlier. You could probably make a burger out of it once reheated, either on a skillet or the grill. Ham is a wondrous food with so many delicious uses.

I did black beans with the leftover hambone and meat from the end that didn't have the spiral slices.

In a stock pot or Dutch Oven add the ham bone and meat, chunked, with a 32 oz container of chicken broth with 16 oz of water added.

Simmer for an hour, until the meat is falling off the bone. Add two can of low sodium black beans and a cup of brown rice, simmer for another 45 minutes or until the rice is cooked.

Makes a great stew.
