Robbie's Left Over Ham Recipes
If you are already wondering what you will do with the leftover ham from Thanksgiving, consider these recipes. Myron shared the second recipe in a previous newsletter, I omit the salt listed in his recipe, as the ham is already salty enough for us.

Ham Shrimp Rice Dish Recipe

2 c. cooked ham
4 c. cooked rice
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1 onion chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
3 cloves garlic
2 to 3 tomatoes chopped
2 teaspoons basil
1/2 lbs. of shrimp
1 lemon
2 bay leaves

Sauté onions, garlic and green peppers in olive oil. Stir in tomatoes.
Add shrimp and with bay leaves, basil, juice of 1 lemon, and dash of red pepper. Add rice. Toss.
Reduce heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes.

Ham Loaf Recipe

1 1/2 lb ground pork
3/4 to 1 lb ground ham (any good ham)
1 medium onion, medium dice
1 cup bread crumbs (I use Panko)
1 (4 oz) can tomato sauce OR 1/2 cup ketchup/catsup
1 large egg
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground black pepper

Preheat oven to 350°. Use your hands and combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl then transfer to a loaf pan or form into a loaf and place in a Pyrex baking dish or a baking pan. Cover with aluminum foil and bake in the preheated oven for 50 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for an additional 20 to 30 minutes or until the top is nicely browned. Remove from the baking dish/pan to a platter and let sit for 15 minutes before slicing and serving. Yield: depends on how thinly you slice it, but about 4 to 6 servings.
Cook's Note: Go easy on the salt as the ham will provide much and if you desire add about 2 teaspoons of ground sage to the ingredients. I also sometimes use 1 pound lean ground beef, 1 pound ground pork and 1 pound ground ham instead of just the ground pork and ground ham as indicated in the recipe. Try it both ways over time to see what you prefer.
