A delicious and easy main dish for using up some of the leftover ham from Easter.

Spoon Bread Ham Supper Recipe

1/2 cup chopped green onion (use tops too)
5 tbsp. melted butter, divided
1 (8 oz.) pkg. corn muffin mix
1 cup chopped cooked ham
2 eggs, slightly beaten
2/3 cup milk
1/2 tsp. prepared mustard
1-1/2 cup shredded Sharp Cheddar cheese
1 tbs. sesame seeds

1 can cream of mushroom soup (I use Campbell's Healthy Request)
1/3 cup milk

Sauté onion with 1 tbsp. melted butter until soft. Combine muffin mix, ham, 2 tbsp. melted butter, eggs, 2/3 cup milk, mustard and 1 cup cheese. Add cooked onion and mix just until blended. Pour into buttered 1-1/2 quart casserole dish. Top with remaining 1/2 cup cheese, 2 tbsp. butter and sesame seeds. Bake at 375 for 35 to 40 minutes until golden brown and firm to the touch. Cut in wedges and serve hot with mushroom sauce.

For sauce, Stir the 1/3 cup milk into the cream of mushroom soup and heat just till boiling; simmer for 2 minutes, stirring constantly.

A good suggestion for using up some of the leftover ham from Easter. You can also use shrimp in place of the ham, as is
equally as good with either. If you can't find the ring macaroni, use any kind of pasta, such as small sea shells.

Ham and Pea Pasta Salad Recipe

1 cup ring macaroni (I use twice that amount)
1/2 cup chopped celery
1/2 small jar of diced pimientos
10 oz. frozen peas, cooked tender crisp
4 hard cooked eggs, chopped
2 cups diced ham (or shrimp)
2 medium carrots, shredded

1/3 cup grated onion
1/4 cup cooking oil
1/4 cup catsup
3 tbsp. sugar
2 tbsp. cider vinegar
2 tbsp. water
1/2 tsp. paprika,
1/2 tsp. prepared mustard
Salt & pepper, to taste
3/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 tsp. seafood seasoning (optional)

Mix dressing together thoroughly (a blender works well) and set aside. I don't use the seafood seasoning unless I use shrimp instead of ham.

Cook and rinse macaroni with cold water; add remaining salad ingredients and add prepared dressing and mix lightly. Chill before serving.

I think this is the recipe for the white frosting that someone as looking for. I can remember my Mom making a frosting like this. She was a wonderful German cook who also cooked in a restaurant. This was a labor intensive recipe for her as in her day she did not have an electric mixer. She lived to be just 3 months short
be just 3 months short of 100. Enjoy this in memory of her.

Fluffy White Cooked Frosting Recipe

3 egg whites
6 tbsp. light corn syrup
3/4 c, sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. vanilla

In double boiler combine first 4 ingredients. Cook over rapidly boiling water. Beat constantly with mixer (about 4 minutes until peaks). Remove from heat. Add vanilla, beat 2 more minutes. Cool slightly and frost cake.

If I remember correctly this is the frosting that she always frosted her angel food cake which also was made from scratch.

Don’t know how I lost track of the issue with Robbie’s response about what to serve with her Snickers Salad but have caught up with it now, and thank you so much. I guess the overall answer is, it’s so good just serve it with anything. Also thinking all by itself would be a heck of a snack. Sure do love your recipes.

And as always thanks to Nancy and her helpers for bringing us all this good stuff.

Reheating a Precooked Ham
You will need some more time but I can't tell you how much, I would start early, and once they reach 140 degrees internally they can be just kept hot until serving time, wrapped in foil in a cooler will do the job of keeping them warm for some time..

In fact except for the outer crust from the oven roasting them, you could heat them in a microwave if needed.

I found this in a search that might help, this is for a precooked, bone in ham.
"This product is already fully cooked and we suggest that you serve it at room temperature. If you like it warmed, please heat in your oven at 325 degrees at 12 minutes/lb. Please do not overheat this product because it is already fully cooked."

My comment above 140 degrees internal holds, as the ham will start to dry out after that.

Salsa Roja (roasted red salsa)

16 full size tomatoes, or nearly a grocery store produce bag full of roma tomatoes (we used roma)
2-3 yellow onions
20-25 Serrano peppers (remove caps) Note: this many peppers makes it hot. Feel free to reduce number of peppers, or scrape the seeds and membranes out of them
8-10 cloves of garlic
1-2 Tbsp salt
1-2 bunches cilantro

Halve the tomatoes and onions and lay cut-side up on a cookie sheet along with the peppers and garlic.

Roast at 375 till the onions look nice and translucent, tomatoes look soft, and peppers are getting a nice char on them
Let it all cool a bit, then run through the food processor with salt and cilantro (we had to do this in two batches)
Stir it all together and eat with abandon.
Trust me.
