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?

Ham and potatoes - scalloped, baked, hash browns

Pasta salad

Green salad

Pasta with veggies and ham - simple olive oil type sauce

We have a lot of ham left but I have 17 year old ham enthusiast to eat it.

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

    • Okay, I found a dr about a half hour away, soonest appointment is in 3 weeks. If they have a cancellation they will call. They said of course I should not have stopped eating gluten before testing and don't know why anyone who is a GI would say that. They asked for the name of the dr. I will get back onto gluten in the meantime. 
    • I suppose I can order the tests myself, but I also was hoping to find a doctor who can actually assist on this mess. I saw that celiac.org does have a search function to locate physicians. Trying that now. The first person I tried doesn't have any opening until October. 
    • If you want to do the full celiac panel quickly, you can buy the test online at walkinlab.com and get it done at your nearest Labcorp today. You can give the results to your next GI. The downside of this method is it's not covered by insurance and costs $298.00. But it'll guarantee you get the full panel. It's called the "Celiac Disease Comprehensive Antibody Profile" and includes: TTG IGA and IGG DGP IGA and IGG EMA IGA   Just a thought.  
    • Ugh. I will try to find another doctor. He was acting like I didn't know what I was talking about but I was pretty sure it was the other way around. Are there sources for recommended doctors/GIs who have better knowledge about appropriate testing procedures? I live in a smaller town so my options for quality care may be more limited.
    • It does matter.  Don't stop eating gluten until all tests are finished.  Maybe check for another GI? "Any changes in your diet can affect the accuracy of your biopsy results. You must be eating gluten every day, in an amount equivalent to at least 1 slice of bread, for at least 2 to 3 weeks before the procedure. If you are scheduled for a biopsy and are not eating gluten, talk to your doctor about what is necessary to obtain accurate results. If you have eaten gluten only a short time before the biopsy, you and your physician will not know if a negative test result is accurate or due to your diet." http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/diagnosis/   "For a gluten challenge we recommend eating 1/2 slice of bread or a cracker each day for the duration of the challenge. Prior to blood testing we recommend 12 weeks of eating gluten. Prior to an endoscopic biopsy we recommend 2 weeks of eating gluten."   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/what-is-a-gluten-challenge/
