Left over ham and potato soup                                    

Is it just me or does anyone else seem to always have a ton of ham left over after a holiday? Over the years I have come up with several creative ways to repurpose the leftover’s into yummy dishes.  I make:

  • Ham and cheese Quiche
  • Croque Monsieur
  • Ham in scrambled eggs 
  • Ham and cheese Omelets
  • Ham and black bean soup
  • Ham Fried Rice

Just to name a few!  I also make a soup that has become a favorite of my hubs.  It’s super easy and super delish but more importantly it’s a stick to your ribs kind of dish.  Quick tip, if you have left over mash potatoes you can add it to this dish to thicken it while getting rid of left overs.  Winning!
