FacebookTwitterGoogle+TumblrPinterest

Got leftover roast ham from Easter weekend? Fortunately it’s among the best kind to have – infinitely versatile, even a small chunk of ham adds flavor to soups, pasta, salads and sandwiches, and keeps well in the fridge, so there’s no rush to use it up. Ham freezes well, too – cut and wrap enough for one recipe and tuck packages in the freezer to get a head start on dinner later on.
