5 Ways to use leftover Easter ham

Anyone else have lots of delicious ham or ham bones after the weekend?  I can never decide which I like better, the freshly baked ham, or all the ways to use the leftovers!  Here's 5 of my favorite ways to use leftover ham:

1.  Creamy Ham and Wild Rice Soup - This is one of my favorite soups, and a great way to use leftover ham.  You can also cook it with the hambone in, then remove the bone and cut off any remaining ham to add back in to the soup.

2. Split Pea Soup - The classic leftover hambone recipe!  So inexpensive, feeds an army, and tastes delicious, especially with extra freshly ground pepper.

3. Ham & Bean Soup - Ok, so we really love soup around here!  Here's a comfort food classic that's always a hit!

4. Two Bean Chili Salad with Smoked Ham - The original recipe uses smoked chicken, but leftover ham can easily be substituted!
5. Baked Ham and Cheese Sandwiches - Another great use for leftover ham, these are so flavorful and always a hit!  Make a great addition to any luncheon, shower, or picnic. I even made a huge one as a birthday "cake" one year for Michael!
