5 Ways to Use Leftover Ham
If I had to choose between a fancy meal of ham with all the fixin’s and a leftover ham sandwich, the sandwich would win every single time. In fact, there’s a good choice the ham wouldn’t even make it into the sandwich, as I have a tendency to just cut pieces of ham off the bone and eat them straight. Tell me I’m not the only one!
Embarrassing snacking habits aside, having leftover ham in the house means that we have dinner options for days. While there are some obvious things you can make with ham—split pea soup, scalloped potatoes and ham sandwiches come to mind—I wanted to share some of my favorite leftover ham ideas that veer away from these classic recipes.

CABBAGE NOODLE TUNA CASSEROLE – LOW CARB, GLUTEN FREE
Low Carb Tuna Casserole – This is my low carb, gluten free take on a traditional classic. You won’t even miss the pasta.
Tuna casserole is always reminiscent of my childhood dinner table. Quick and easy. The poor mans friend. Back then it only took a box of pasta, a couple cans of tuna, some condensed cream of mushroom soup, and peas. Now, I am giving it an elevated low carb, gourmet face lift. The dill and the mustard powder really bring this sauce to life. Serving it over cabbage was just a no brainer. Cabbage is a favorite among low carbers and makes an excellent substitution for noodles. It is filling, inexpensive and versatile. That is a winning combination. If you are a fan of cabbage recipes, check out some of my other variations. Fried Cabbage with Kielbasa, Oven Roasted Cabbage Wedges, and Paleo Cabbage Roll Soup just to name a few. What are some of your favorite ways to eat cabbage?

Cook the bacon; then crumble bacon, slice green onions, cut cream cheese into cubes, measure sour cream, and measure Parmesan.

Philly Cheesesteak Casserole
Apologies in advance to any Philadelphia natives that may read this; I know this is not a true, authentic cheesesteak by any means, but I’m pretty excited about this low carb alternative. There is something very satisfying about peppers, onions and steak that gets even better when you add some cheese. You don’t even need the bread when the outcome tastes this good – bonus points for it being easy to prepare, making it the perfect weeknight meal.
