No. More. Ham. Sandwiches. That's the promise you make yourself every year, standing in your kitchen, looking at the pounds of ham leftover from Easter. And then... you have ham sandwiches for a week straight.
This year, keep that promise and whip up quick and easy dishes that turn that ham into totally new bites. Here's how.
Turn that leftover ham into these delectable arepas. The dough comes together quickly with the addition of an anaheim pepper for some subtle heat, cubed leftover ham, and shredded pepper jack cheese. Formed into discs, the mix is then griddled until golden and crunchy.
Ham and Cheese Empanadas are made with quick homemade flaky dough and a filling of gently spiced leeks and ham. Perfect for the holidays, these empanadas are easy enough to make any time you're feeling festive. Use any leftover ham in the filling and make a few batches to freeze and bake off whenever the craving hits.
This is more like the classic bocadillos you'll find: fatty and creamy jamon on a crusty bread. Here, we're piling it on with manchego cheese and smoky roasted red peppers to amp up the flavor. If you're using leftover ham, just slice it as thinly as possible and then layer it on.
