How to Cut a Spiral Ham
After you take the ham out of the oven let it rest for about 15 minutes so all the juices can redistribute throughout.
* Lay the ham so the bone is facing up.
* Guide your carving knife around the muscle line of the bone.
* At this point, the ham should fall off the bone because spiral hams are precut into a spiral.
Glazed Spiral Ham Leftovers Recipe
Pineapple Glazed Spiral Ham is another meal that will go a long way. You will enjoy it for dinner and then again for lunch the next day when you make a Ham Sandwich.
This is one of my mom’s famous recipes that always pleased the family with leftover ham. She calls it “Shepard’s Pie with a Twist”. You take the leftover Glazed Spiral Ham and chop it up in the blender, just enough to cover about 2 inches of the bottom of a 12 X 12 casserole dish.
Drain 1 – 15 oz. can of corn place it on top of the chopped-up Ham. Cover the corn with mashed potatoes to the top of your casserole dish.
Cook for about 1 hour at 375 degrees until the top is a little golden brown. This is definitely a family-pleaser recipe and you can use up the leftovers without wasting food.
If you want to add some green vegetables to this meal just switch the 1 can of corn for a 1 can of peas. It turns out just as enjoyable.
So give it a try and please let us know how much your family loves “Shepard’s Pie with a Twist”
