- Creative Recipes for Leftover Ham
Bake a glazed ham on the weekend and you'll have a head start for preparing more delicious meals, from breakfast through dinner. Begin your day with a Denver scramble, a diner-style dish of scrambled eggs with ham, onions, bell peppers and cheddar cheese. For a creative twist on the classic ham sandwich, try an open-faced croque monsieur, a Parisian favorite that combines ham and Gruyère cheese with a rich béchamel sauce. Our ham and cheddar cheese gratin makes a satisfying supper paired with a tossed green salad.
- Creative Recipes for Leftover Chicken
Delicious on its own, a roast chicken provides an added bonus: wonderful leftovers for preparing quick weeknight meals, including soups, salads and more. You can dice the meat and combine it with carrots, potatoes and other vegetables to create a warming potpie, or stir pieces into a hearty risotto laced with caramelized onions. For a simple yet satisfying supper, tuck leftover chicken between slices of bread, layer with Gruyère cheese and sautéed mushrooms, and then grill.
