I am always looking for unique ways to use leftovers. My family is not a fan of them, so I aim to get creative. Since we just celebrated Easter a few short weeks ago, I have leftover sliced ham frozen. This healthy, leftover ham recipe is one of my favorite ways to use leftovers, especially after a holiday. Of course, it’s free of gluten, dairy, and soy and easy to make for a quick weeknight dinner.
How to Make This Recipe
To make this healthy leftover ham recipe start by getting out your leftover ham. If the ham is frozen, thaw it in the refrigerator overnight. You will also need baking potatoes, a package of frozen broccoli, and honey mustard sauce. Grab my recipe HERE.
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
Wash and scrub your potatoes, then pat dry. Pierce each potato with a knife. Wrap each potato in foil, and bake for about 1 hour, or until soft. (If pressed for time, microwave each potato for about 5-7 minutes).
While the potatoes are baking, cut up the leftover ham slices into small cubes and place them into a small bowl. Set it aside.
Cook the broccoli according to the package directions.
When the potatoes are finished remove them from the oven and let them sit for a few minutes while you heat up the ham.
Cut open each potato. Add ham then broccoli. Top with the honey mustard sauce.
Serve and Enjoy!
