An Easter tradition at our house (and maybe yours, too!) is having a delicious, baked ham for lunch. It's one of my family's favorites and best of all, it's super easy on the chef (aka ME!). Ham is one of those main dishes that doesn't require a ton of prep work - you can pretty much just pop it in the oven and leave it for a couple of hours. Super simple and always a hit with the whole family!
This year, I decided I am going to try something a little different and use my family's new favorite product: Brown Sugar & Maple Bacon Seasoning. I decided to give it a trial run a few weeks ago before the making it for the large crowd at Easter and let me tell you … it was FABULOUS! Check out the recipe »
One of the things I have always loved about making ham (besides how delicious it is), is the leftovers! There are always plenty of leftovers and you can do so many different things with them. You won't even feel like you are eating the same meat for many meals in a row. This year I decided to have a plan for my leftovers so I can shop for all my ingredients at once and have them on hand. That way I can start using up my leftovers right away and not let any of them go to waste.
Here are a few of the recipes I have on my list. I might just buy two hams to make sure I have enough leftovers to try them all!
