Leftover Ham Recipes

20 easy leftover ham recipes after your big holiday dinner. The perfect way to create new life from ordinary leftovers!

Here are some of the best leftover ham recipes. Let’s face it, after spending days in the grocery store and kitchen, shopping, prepping and preparing for the holiday meal, the last thing you want to do for the rest of the week is to have to cook. This is why special occasions also call for easy and creative leftover recipes, which are a great addition to your holiday traditions.

For Easter dinner my family always makes a spiral ham, and we almost always end up with a lot of leftover ham. One of my favorite recipes to make our Easter ham is Crockpot Ham. Good news is that you can put that extra ham to good use, and it is a delicious way to repurpose holiday leftovers. From creamy ham casseroles, classic ham salad, ham hash to potato soup, some of my favorite things are made from holiday season leftovers.

Here is a list of the best leftover ham recipes that are perfect for creating new dishes with great flavor that doesn’t feel like leftovers!
