I am having so much fun making up recipes using the leftover ham. I ended up buying three hams the week before Easter because they were such a great price and freezing them. So far I have made 90 breakfast sandwiches for John that are now in the freezer, I made up this Crock Pot Ham and Cheese Grits Recipe and the Crock Pot Cheesy Ham and Swiss Casserole Recipe from these hams.
So we pretty much have been swimming in ham the past few weeks and it has been fantastic! I love that I can make up the hams using our Crock Pot Ham recipe and use the ham for so many different recipes. I almost wish I would have bought a couple more hams so I could prep more food for the freezer. I have quite a bit of travel coming up in the next few months and really want to make sure John is set up with easy to make meals.
I’ve mentioned a few times that John grew up in the South and I am a tried and true Pacific Northwest girl. The first time I made grits it did not turn out pretty at all. I am not sure what I did to them but they were not pretty. Thankfully over the years of our marriage, I have continued to make them and improve them.
Easy Crock Pot Cheese Grits Recipe with leftover ham! Great for breakfast or brunch. The slow cooker crockpot does all the work.
