  • Zesty Baked Chicken Cordon Bleu Pasta: This delish recipe via Supergluemom is sure to be a hit at the dinner table!
  • Ham & Apricot Sandwich: Trust me, it’s amazing! Spread some apricot preserves on a slice of bread with ham to add a flavorful flair to an otherwise boring sammie.
  • Breakfast Pizzas: These simple pizzas are great for the kids and can be filled with your family favorites, including leftover ham chunks for a filling and fun breakfast.
  • Mac and Cheese: Kick up that bowl of Easy Mac and Cheese by adding bite-size ham pieces and peas or broccoli to it.
  • Ham & Cheese Rollups: Use your favorite croissant recipe or store-bought brand, filled with ham and cheese, then baked until the cheese is melted. Great for appetizers, lunch, or snacking.
  • Breakfast Spirals and Egg Muffins: Not only are these naturally gluten-free, but they can be filled with your preference of foods including ham, cheese, spinach, peppers, onion, etc.
  • Pasta Salad: Another great option is to make a yummy cold pasta salad with ham, broccoli, cheese, and tomato. Another yummy dish perfect for eating at home or packing for lunches.
