~ Leftover Ham & Creamed Cabbage Pot ~ Awesome!

Cassie *


Finally used up the last of my Christmas hams and talk about delicious...this was so much more than I expected. I used what I had and I wouldn't change a thing. The ham was melt in your mouth tender, along with the cabbage.

I hope you try it sometime. I served it with a skillet of my Southern cornbread. Absolute comfort food! One pot to clean is a plus as well!

How to Make ~ Leftover Ham & Creamed Cabbage Pot ~ Awesome!


  • 1In a large skillet or chicken fryer as I used, melt butter over medium heat, when bubbly add onion, garlic, ham and rice. Continue stirring and cooking until rice is golden and onion becomes tender.
  • 2In a bowl, whisk together the soup and half and half. Pour this mixture into pot, stir - then add the cabbage, salt, pepper, pepper flakes and horseradish.
    Cover and simmer for 45 - 55 minutes or until cabbage and rice is tender. Add the cup of milk if becomes too thick, before the rice is tender. I ended up adding a full cup.

    Let set for 10 minutes with lid on, before serving. This insures the rice to be cooked.
  • 3I served this yummy dish with a pan of hot corn bread.
