    I make either macaroni and cheese or baked SWEET potatoes. Love those sweet taters, no muss, no fuss, add butter and they are wonderful. Also escalloped corn.

    Oh I like the looks of this! Thank you for sharing.
    ... and the cinnamon hearts are already in the stores for valentines.

    While you said, "add to taste" ... what is a good starter quantity,
    for some cinnamon snap, but not too heavy?

    Please? and Thanks!

    Cole slaw is always good with Ham. Throw a little crushed pineapple into the slaw mix. Mmmmmmmmmmm

    This is the easiest recipe ever. Don't blink or you'll miss it.

    2 to 6 medium sweet potatoes
    Wash sweet potatoes well, but don't dry.
    Put on bottom of crock pot. Put lid on and turn on low.
    Cook 6-7 hours or until tender.
    Serve with butter and salt.

    Another good glaze is some marmalade mixed with a little mustard, brushed/poured onto the ham when the skin has been removed, and popped back in the oven for 30 mins to caramelise nicely.
    i generally soak my ham in cold water for a few hours, drain, refresh water, bring to boil, drain, refresh water, and cook as usual. I find that this helps with any saltiness.

    Anyone done Nigella Lawson's ham in Coke. Sounds odd, but it works a treat. Pan does need a proper clean though!!

    Scalloped potatoes is what grandma always served with ham. That and candied carrots, but we opt for plain buttered carrots.
    If you always do, what you have always done, The results never change. Change is the wings you give yourself.

    Sweet potato, apple sauce or pineapple, veggie of choice. If you like butternut squash, it can be used in place of a potato.

    I am partial to roasted brussel sprouts, but mix them with other veggies such as corn, peas, carrots, chopped onion and parsnips. I also add an apple or pear, quarter it and cut into smaller pieces, when roasting the veggies. My spice of choice is Carribean Jerk. It's spicy hot, but not outrageously so, although the more you use, the spicier it is. Mix it in 2 tablespoons of olive oil, then pour it over the veggies. Gently tumble veggies around so that all of them get a coating oil and seasoning on them. (I use my clean hands to tumble them.) Sometimes I add raisins or dried cranberry to the mix. Put them in a covered pan and Roast at 350 to 400 degrees until done - the way I like my veggies means they roast for about 45 minutes.

    I learned not to mix broccoli and brussel sprouts. Awful combination, as all you will smell and taste is broccoli. Broccoli over powers the other veggies.
    A quilt is like a good life. It's full of mistakes, but, in the end, it looks pretty good.

    My family loves potato salad with a little yellow mustard mixed in and baked beans with a little brown sugar, ketchup and onion added with ham. Deviled eggs and a good yeast bread are a must side for them too. Ummmm...I'm getting hungry!

    I do not like this but my kids do and so do many of my friends, a noodle dish. Yes, even mac and cheese or macaroni salad. I personally like some mash potatoes or sweet dinner rolls. Good luck! Not my favorite meal either. I do like it for breakfast with hashbrowns and eggs over easy. LOL Maybe do that and some fresh cut fruit.

    Not a fancy meal, but Ham with Macaroni and Cheese is always a winner in my world.
    Then a simple salad or cooked veggie to go with it.

    The leftovers of the three hots freeze well into single portion meals, if that is of interest.
    Man I am glad you also posted this. I thought people might think me crazy serving mac and cheese with it. lol

    1/4 c chopped onion
    1 can cream of chicken soup
    1 small jar diced pimentos
    1 cup grated cheddar cheese
    1 stick butter

    Melt butter and place in casserole dish. Mix all ingredients an top with grated cheese. Bake 350 for 15-20 minutes till bubbly.

    I double this recipe. Mahatma rice comes either in a small or a large package. When I double it I use the large pkg. I also mix in extra cheddar cheese. It's great even for breakfast the next day.
    This sounds delicious!

    Definitely not crazy!
    but like I said, it all depends on how fancy-schmancy of a meal they want.

    Likewise, if I have leftover ham and have not made Mac+Cheese, for the first round ...
    very likely M+C it will be for the planned overs!

    All this talk of ham...makes me hungry for the ham bone I froze at Christmas time from our huge ham...I fixed scalloped potatoes, but think that baked sweet potatoes or winter squash would be sooo good with it.

    I'm thinking of boiling my ham bone and pairing it with asparagus. Last spring, I made asparagus puree/broth from the tougher pieces and thinking Cream of asparagus soup with ham would be a good combo...what do you folks think? PS I don't like to cook...but if I do like to make soup.

    Baked ham,raisin sauce, Apple sauce, Mac and cheese using cheddar cheese recipe, and other sides of choice. Homemade recipe for Mac and cheese is the best side for ham. No sugar applesauce balances salt of ham, tang of Mac and cheese.
    Hello from Shenandoah Valley, VA. Quilting a few years. Love the process of creating the quilt top, but don't like making the sandwich of top, batting and backing as much. We have two Labrador Retrievers, a yellow and a chocolate. Blessings to all!

    I bake the ham, no glaze because I use it in great northern beans. Mashed potatoes w/ white gravy and corn. Sometimes heat bread rolls to go with it.

    Basically, some variation of a starch of choice and a green veggie. Simple and tasty.

    I'm not fond of baked ham too much either. When I make it mac and cheese is a side because that's the part of the dinner I'll be eating. Then maybe green beans or any green veg.
    Create something beautiful from scraps.
