Here comes comfort food in the form of Baked Macaroni & Cheese with Ham. Use up that leftover holiday ham and make this home-style cheesy dish.
Ever had this happen at our house? Holiday is over, whether it be Christmas or Easter and days later you’re still eating leftover ham. Now don’t get me wrong, the first couple of days its great, but after a few days you get those pieces at the end that aren’t exactly pretty. The small remnants of larger pieces that you probably whacked off the bone. You can use them in a variety of ways. Today I share my personal favorite way. Baked Macaroni & Cheese with Ham. This is comfort food in my book!
In the past I’ve shared my Roasted Garlic & Bacon Macaroni and Cheese which is a wonderful dish, but this one is all about the ham and of course the cheese. You’d be surprised how much ham you get after trimming those remaining pieces. You’ll want about 2 cups for this recipe, more is great too. And if your ham was of the honey-baked variety, the flavor is just subtle with the macaroni and cheese and surprisingly good.
