Ham & Bow Tie Bake

I’m still up to my eyeballs in ham. I made that crockpot beer ham a few weeks ago and have turned it into three different dishes—but I still have ham leftover.

And that was a small, 3 pound ham, too!

If you made a ham for Thanksgiving, you’re probably swimming in ham slices as well. Luckily for you, I got you covered with how you can use it up. If you chop up a cup or so of ham, you’ve got endless possibilities. Breakfast, lunch, dinner—you name it.

This recipe came from one of my first recipe boxes I filled up with transcribed recipes. I’m pretty sure it was from a Taste of Home booklet or something similar, it’s got easy-casserole-esquee recipe written all over it. I love a good dump and bake dish. Ham, cheese, alfredo sauce, some veggies and pasta—that’s all you need for a great casserole.

Chop up some of that leftover ham and get to work. This recipe would be good with any combination of veggies—carrots and peas, bell pepper and mushrooms, you name it. If it’s in your fridge, throw it in!

Enjoy!
