Perfect for Leftover Ham

After big holidays like Easter and Christmas, I always have loads of leftover ham. And honestly, you can only eat so many ham sandwiches before everyone gets tired of it! So I’m always looking for delicious ways to use ham in different meals. I add it to frittatas, quiche, grilled cheese and of course, this creamed ham!

A classic recipe.

This recipe is one that I use often for leftover ham and the kids love it (I also use a similar recipe for creamed turkey). It’s creamy, flavourful, and wonderful poured over toast or buttered noodles! I love this recipe because not only do you use up a lot of ham, but you can also throw in leftover cooked vegetables and even gravy (see tips below).

Tips & Tricks

  • Ham: I like to used leftover cubed ham in this recipe. You can use any cooked ham (cubed ham works best).
  • Vegetables: If you’ve got carrots, peas, or green beans leftover from dinner, add those. You can also use a frozen vegetable mix (I like the one with carrots, peas, corn and beans). Other delicious vegetables you can use are mushrooms, asparagus, broccoli or cauliflower. Just use 2 cups total.
  • Milk: I like to use 2% milk. But you can also use whole milk and cream if you really want this dish to be creamy.
  • Flour: The flour is added to create a roux.
  • Add Gravy: If you have leftover ham gravy from dinner, add a 1/4 to 1/2 a cup of it to the sauce.  It adds SO much flavour and is SO good.
  • Bread:  We love this served over buttered toast, but it’s also delicious served over noodles.
