What to do with leftover Christmas ham ? Christmas is over but you are left with some ham and other foods. I’m sharing some easy Asian recipe ideas you can cook or bake to use up the leftover ham.
Ham is one of the foods that many of us must-have on our tables to celebrate Christmas. It’s the tradition. Even when I got the smallest possible ham, I still end up with some leftovers. While they can be easily used to make sandwiches, they can be repurposed beyond just sandwiches. From rice, noodles, casseroles, soups, and they don’t have to be complicated too. I’m sharing some ideas here you can easily swap out the meat or seafood with your leftover ham and you just made yourself something new.
How to prepare the leftover ham for the recipes
For stir frying with noodles, rice, or as a filling in pastry and casseroles, and to cook with rice porridge: The only thing you need to do is to dice the ham into smaller pieces before you use them in any of the recipes above. There is no need to reheat the ham
For use in banh mi sandwich: Slice the ham into the thickness and the size you like for the sandwich
