Test your imagination by figuring out the best way to combine the leftovers for another dinner. Do you think you’ll remember what’s inside and the date if you don’t label it? If you do, your memory is a lot better than mine!
I get this question, mostly from our children, about how much ham to buy. This is how it goes. Ham with bone -- 3/4 to 1 lb. serving. Boneless ham -- four to six ounces per serving. Count how many people you’re feeding, check the weight of the ham and figure it out.
Let’s use leftover ham in today’s recipes.
There are a lot of sandwiches made using sliced ham but try this sandwich spread for something different.
CRUNCHY SANDWICH SPREAD
1 c. minced (very small) or ground ham
1/3 c. mayo
1/4 c. each, minced celery or green pepper and finely chopped walnuts
1/2 t. prepared mustard
Salt and pepper to taste
In a small bowl, combine all ingredients. Cover and put in fridge for two hours. Serve on bread (dark Russian rye), French bread, crackers, celery sticks or other raw veggies.

Who said real men don’t eat quiche? I dispute that statement. I know a real guy who thinks this is a delicious!
