Leftover Christmas ham? I've got recipes!

Our family traditionally celebrates Christmas with ham for dinner instead of turkey. Inevitably, though, we have leftovers. After making sandwiches for a couple of days, everyone is ready for something different. These recipes make the most of your ham leftovers without being repetitive.

This recipe uses up leftover veggies, too. An easy homemade cheese sauce and some pasta and you've got an all-in-one meal.

If you enjoy a good quiche, this recipe is for you! Ham, broccoli, cheese and eggs - you really can't go wrong.

Soup is a great way to make your ham leftovers stretch. Here are two great recipes.

I know I said earlier that people can get tired of leftover ham sandwiches, but these little bites are an exception. Put together on yeast rolls with a hint of butter and seasonings, they are yummy and satisfying.

What are your favorite ways to use up leftover ham? I'm always looking to expand my repertoire, so please share in the comments.
