What to Do With Leftovers (Christmas Style)

If you are like us, you open the fridge and are staring at a big ‘ol hunk of ham and wondering, what in the world am I going to do with that? There are only so many ham sandwiches one can down before it gets boring. Tonight, I want to share with you what we did with some of our leftover ham (and I hope in return, you will tell me what to do with the rest of it!)

When I planned meals, I wanted stir fry tonight. It is full of veggies, and definitely something we needed after all the goodies. Mr. Burgher’s mom affirmed it would be good as stir fry, and I got to thinking, it would be great to add in some pineapple with the veggies. Here’s how it went down:

First, I put the ham in the wok to brown.

Next, drain and add the crushed pineapple. Let the juices cook off–it seasons the ham nicely.

Add in the frozen veggies, and let this cook about 10 minutes, or until brown. Toss in the teriayki sauce and let it cook through (about 4-5 minutes).

Finally, serve over brown rice and enjoy!

Hawaiian-Style Stir Fry

Several slices of leftover ham (cubed)
2 cans of crushed pineapple, drained
3 cups of frozen stir fry veggies (I used a Kyoto Blend from Market Day–they are a fundraising site that our daughter’s school participates in)
1-2 cups frozen broccoli
3 Tablespoons Teriayki Sauce

Serve over brown rice (we added salsa to the end result just because we love spicy). Have to say, this was quite delicious, and could end up being tomorrow’s meal, too!

This recipe was inspired by the one found here, but I made it my own way without the sauce they make, which would probably taste like sweet and sour sauce.

    If you like spicy, try this!
    Take the ham and cut it up into cubes, set aside. In a large pot add like 2 large containers of chicken stock and boil elbow macaroni or similar pasta. Add some cubed velveeta cheese, rotel Mexican style tomatoes and the ham. Let it all kind of cook together and serve. It’s like spicy Mac and cheese with ham and soooooo good!
