Nice hot dish, easy to fix, from that plain sliced ham leftover from the holiday buffet. It's not rocket science, so 'grandma recipe' measurements (meaning lack of exact measurements) should suffice! I made it for dinner for the two of us last night, and made another serving for me today. No microwave needed!

How to Make Savory Broiled Leftover Sliced Ham


  1. Turn oven to Broil, or Convection Broil.
  2. Put a piece of foil, large enough to place your ham on, onto a baking pan/sheet. Turn up the edges a bit so juices will stay in foil.
  3. Place the 2 slices of ham, together, one on top of the other, onto the foil.
  4. Pour a glob of Chunky Applesauce onto the top ham slice. Spread it around, leaving close to an inch around the edges without applesauce.
  5. Sprinkle ginger back and forth across the applesauce. (Ok if it goes over the plain ham part.)
  6. LIGHTLY sprinkle some ground cloves over the applesauce.
  7. Sprinkle some cinnamon over the applesauce. I like this sprinkled somewhat lightly. [You can always adjust the spices to your each person's taste.]
  8. Place it under the broiler. Cook until the edges look sizzly and edge is just browning as it curls up a bit.

    I had rack fairly low in the oven, just because it was already there and I didn't feel like moving it. It only takes a few to five or so minutes... I didn't time it, sorry. Just looked every once in a while. If you have rack closer to broiler, you might have to watch it more closely.
  9. When plating, pour the juices from the foil, spreading around onto the top of the ham stack.
  10. This goes well with whatever sides you like, potatoes, sweet potatoes, rice, &/or your choice of veggies, etc.
  11. THIS MAKES A SERVING FOR ONE> MAKE AS MANY SERVINGS AS YOU LIKE, just adjust size of foil, and 'share' the juices among the servings. I used leftover ham that had been fully sliced for sandwiches.
