Leftover Christmas Ham Recipes - Omelet and Breaded Christmas Ham and Tofu

It's the 4th of January. I'm sure many of you still leftover Christmas ham in your freezer. If you don't feel like eating that ham as is anymore, here are some simple and easy to cook 'recycling' suggestions.

First recipe to 'recycle' that ham is omelet. Here is how to do it.

1 tbsp minced garlic
1 tbsp onion
1/2 cup diced tomatoes
1/4 cup bell pepper (optional)
1/4 cup milk
   salt and pepper
1 cup cubed leftover Christmas ham
2 eggs

1. Heat oil in a pan.
2. Saute garlic and onion. Set aside.
3. Beat egg in a bowl. Mix the leftover Christmas ham, tomatoes, bell pepper and the garlic and onion you set aside.    4. Add milk. Add salt and pepper to taste
5. Pour over a preheated pan with little oil. Make sure to use low flame.
6. Remove from flame. Sprinkle grated cheese on top.

Another suggestion would be to make 'breaded ham and tofu'


Christmas ham (a quarter of an inch thick, 1 1/2 inch wide and 2 inches in length)
tofu (half an inch thick, 1 1/2 inch wide and 2 inches in length)
egg (beaten) 
powdered milk
chili powder

1. Put a slice of leftover Christmas ham in between two slices of tofu. (like a sandwich) You may use toothpick to secure the sandwich.
2. Dip in beaten egg.
3. Roll in breading mix (flour, powdered milk, pepper and chili powder - flour and milk should follow a 2:1 ratio, pepper and chili powder according to your taste).
4. Deep fry.
