Even before Easter, Thanksgiving, and Christmas arrive I am already looking for easy leftover ham recipes. I know we will need quite a few using cubed ham. (originally posted 3/16, affiliate links present)

We always have oven baked ham leftovers and hate being wasteful. We’ve made several things ourselves but I thought about including a few more ideas this year from other bloggers.

Enjoy your holidays and try something new this year with your leftover sliced ham from the big meal. 😉

  • Are you sick of sandwiches and ready to try other leftover ham recipes now?

We thought so!

Our Loaded Baked Potato Soup is something we make often. My daughter even asked for it for Christmas dinner this year!

This totally loaded baked potato soup in the crockpot is super easy recipe to make and so delicious! You only need a few ingredients and it only costs about $10 to feed up to 6 people. Stovetop and pressure cooker potato soup instructions included too so you can cook it any way you want. #potato #soup #loaded #crockpot #slowcooker #pressurecooker #cheese

We’ve got lots of suggestions like our slow cooker ham and beans that cooks all day.

Or try ham and cheese roll ups that can be thrown together in no time for dinner! When it is cold outside and I have meat to use up I love adding it into a hearty soup like Instant Pot lentil soup here.

Your Christmas ham has endless possibilities for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

If you love leftover ham soups we have a bunch of those too. They’re probably my favorite.
