Celebrate everyday ham

Irisa Raina 9


I love making a ham for no special reason.

You can do so much with the leftovers. It’s like the Thanksgiving turkey…we look forward to the leftovers.

With ham you can do breakfast like in a frittata, lunch or brunch could be a great stacked sammie, oh and for dinner I love to do the ham, scalloped or au gratin potatoes. Add a salad and you are good to go!

And don’t forget about the bone….my mom always made split pea soup…delish!

This is just one of the many topping I put on my ham.
