A 7-Day Meal Plan Using Leftover Ham

If you made a big ham for Christmas, then you're going to love our ideas on how to turn the leftovers into another wonderful meal (or two).

1 / 7
Ham Broccoli And Orzo Casserole Exps Ft20 110344 F 0205 1

Sunday: Ham, Broccoli and Orzo Casserole

A kid-pleaser and the perfect comfort food, this gooey orzo casserole is a complete meal in one. For an extra homey touch, I make mine in my favorite hand-me-down casserole dish from my Grandma Laverne. —Heather Arndt Anderson, Portland, Oregon
2 / 7

Monday: Jambalaya Rice Salad

My cold rice salad has a hint of spice for a classic jambalaya-style kick. Shrimp, tomatoes, ham and peppers give it bright colors and a delightful texture. —Karen Rahn, Hixon, Tennessee

Ham And Leek Pies Exps29602 Sd143203b10 16 9bc Rms

Tuesday: Ham and Leek Pies

I’ve been making these pies for years, so lots of friends and family now have the recipe. If you can’t find leeks, a sweet or mild onion works just as well. —Bonny Tillman, Acworth, Georgia
4 / 7

Wednesday: Ham and Broccoli Baked Potatoes

This loaded baked potato dish is a spin on a favorite family recipe I have made for years: ham and potato casserole. It’s a great recipe when you have a tight food budget, and it tastes amazing! The potatoes and filling can be prepared ahead of time, then assembled prior to serving. —Patricia Prescott, Manchester, New Hampshire

Ham Potato And Pepper Chowder Exps Sdas17 202292 B04 11 3b 4

Thursday: Ham, Potato and Pepper Chowder

I have been serving this chowder for years now. When I’m feeding family members who don’t eat dairy products, I substitute oil for the butter and use coconut milk or soy creamer instead of heavy cream. It still turns out wonderful! —Eileen Stefanski, Wales, Wisconsin

Friday: Ham Pasta Toss

This is my favorite meal to make when I’m short on time. You can also use different meats or vegetables depending on what you have on hand. —Sharon Gerst, North Liberty, Iowa.
7 / 7

Saturday: Quick Hawaiian Pizza

Our family never quite liked the taste of canned pizza sauce, so one time I tried mixing some barbecue sauce into spaghetti sauce to add some sweetness. I’ve made my pizzas with this special and easy sauce ever since, and my family loves it! —Tonya Schieler, Carmel, Indiana
