    I am glad to see a cooking forum here - I love trying new things!

    Anyway, we had a boneless ham for dinner on Thursday, and I made delish Croque Moinsure (sp?) on Friday, and was looking for a new idea for the rest of the leftovers for tonight or tomorrow. I've thought about omelettes or a fritatta, or maybe a bean soup, but if anyone has something different, I'd love to hear it!

    TIA!

    I love scalloped potatoes & ham! You can also make chicken cordon bleu and use some of your ham. You can also freeze some and use at a later time, no need to eat it all right away. I made a small ham yesterday and have just enough for some sandwiches. :cool1:

    Ooh, I like the idea of cordon bleu. I have some thin-cut chicken breast and some swiss or havarti that would go well.

    I use it to make ham roll ups- You chop up the ham into small pieces and add a vegetable (some of us like broccoli and some like mushrooms also in small pieces) and add some shredded cheese (I use cheddar but any type you would like). Using a bought cresent rolll dough add a heaping spoonful of the mixture into the center and then bring ends in to close a bit. Bake at temp required by the cresents. I normally do about 2-3 for DH and I my brother who loves them normally wants 6-8.
