I just thawed a bag of ham chunks/slices that was nearing the end of it's freezer life and I need to do soemthing with it.

I've already made split pea / lentil soup with ham chunks, and ham and egg breakfast burritos (both in the freezer. Any other ideas?

It's just me here, and I have a limited enthusiasm for ham. Any freezable ideas? OK, the ham and potato thing could be made freezable.

My mom used to make some sort of beans and ham. It was awful! You might be able to make it better. You would probably use some seasoning. :)

Do chickens eat ham? What about the cats? :P

I just made a pot of my Grandmom's bean soup. YUMMMMMM. Boil the ham in water, add cleaned white beans. After an ohour, add carrots, celery and onions, salt and pepper as needed. The KEY is marjoram, about a teaspoon. Add a can of crushed tomatoes near the end, and you will be in "hog heaven."

I can't eat ham, but we had dinner at a friend's house and they sent some home for my husband to eat. I made him a ham and pineapple pizza (gluten free of course).

How about fried rice and ham (sautee diced onions, diced ham, scramble an egg & add; add defrosted frozen green peas; mix in tamari sauce to taste). Garnish with green onions, if you like them.

Or ham, egg, cheese mini-frittatas (in cupcake tins) and freeze.

Rice pasta macaroni & cheese, add diced ham & peas.

1) Fire up the Weber grill
2) Lightly brush a few cross slices of pineapple with extra virgin olive oil
3) Grill each slice approximately 3 minutes on each side (get a nice sear strip)
4) Remove from grill and eat as a side with the ham (Mmmm carmelized pineapple!!!)
5) Put on your Hawaiian lei that you bought at the dollar store for $1
6) Consider a mai tai as an accoutrement to the ham and pineapple
7) Send those winter blues far, far away
8) Return to dollar store and buy a $1 Hawaiian grass skirt
9) Consider buying a $1 coconut bathing suit top
10) Repeat as needed
