Ham It Up! Leftover Ham Ideas

Ham and Parsley Potatoes, Uploaded from the Photobucket iPhone AppThere's so many meals and dishes for using leftover ham. Is there any other meat offering such a big bang for the bucks, especially when on sale for Easter or Christmas holidays?  Right down to the bone and scraps, leftovers fill my freezer for scores of future meals. 

I package and freeze in pint-size bags: nice-sized slices for more ham dinners and sandwiches, then any smaller pieces for soups, casseroles, quiches, or breakfasts.

Here's links to my blog recipes which can include ham:
Navy Bean Soup
Split Pea and Ham Soup
Mac and Cheese
Quiche
Ham Croquettes
