The best thing about having ham for Easter dinner? Well, ham. But the second best thing? Leftover ham! And no, we’re not talking about reprising your Easter dinner for the next three or four nights.

 

Sure, thick-sliced ham on a hoagie roll makes for a great sandwich, but after putting in all that work making the holiday dinner, why not put your leftover ham to work for you? Not only are these three dinner recipes featuring leftover ham diverse (you could probably make them three in a row and not feel like you’re having ham night after night), they’re eminently easy, too. Just 20 minutes each ’til dinner’s on the table.
