This site is dedicated to crockpot cooking. Featuring a new recipe every day.
I'm keeping this short and sweet for you this month. It's all about ham leftovers and what to do with them. Rather than talk at length, I'm just going to dive into the recipes ... here are three of my favorites:
In a saucepan, combine the cream of celery soup, milk, onion, marjoram, and rosemary; heat over medium heat just to boiling. Add the cheese; stir until the mixture is smooth and the cheese is melted.
In a lightly buttered 1 1/2 quart casserole, layer 1/3 of the dry stuffing mix; top with half of the ham, half of the asparagus, and half of the cheese sauce.
Repeat the layers. Mix the remaining 1/3 of the stuffing mix with 1 tablespoon of the melted butter; sprinkle over the top. Bake at 350° for 30 to 40 minutes, or until the casserole is hot and bubbly.
Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion, green pepper and garlic. Sauté for 2 minutes. Add the flour, stirring until smooth; cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Gradually stir in the milk; add salt and pepper.
Cook until the sauce is thickened, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat. Beat the egg yolks in a small bowl. Add a small amount (about 1/3 cup) of the hot sauce to the egg yolks, stirring quickly to blend; return the egg yolk mixture to the sauce in the pan. Add the pimiento and ham; stir gently.
Preheat the oven to 350°. In a large bowl, beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form. Stir about 1/2 cup of the whites into the ham mixture. Gently fold the ham mixture into the remaining whites. Turn the mixture into an ungreased 2-quart sauté dish. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes, or until firm.
