I have a smoked ham (completely precooked), and I'm looking for ideas of what to do with it for supper. Any suggestions?

Just eat it the way it is. Maybe green beans and mashed potatoes would go good with it.

If you really like ham, you might want to try one of these rather pricey, but oh so good, HoneyBaked hams.

Just slice it and nuke it.

Just wait until Woolie sees this thread. He'll tell you what to do with that ham (counter-intuitive, at best, I know).

Hmm, I usually eat most during supper because that's when I've done most of the day's work... anyway, I would:

1) Cook a serving of rice - add a few pieces of whole cinnamon, a tablespoonful of seasoning wine and some butter in the water. (5min+)

2) Place rice in a ceramic plate with elevated circumference (like those soup plates). (<1min)

3) Mix with whatever spices/additional ingredients (sliced mushrooms/canned corn are OK) you can imagine (up to your creativity), and place your smoked ham in desired manner. Sprinkle minced cheese above... like 80% mozzarella and 20% cheddar. (? min)

4) Bake in oven until cheese is crispy.


Or actually, if you're lazy... 2 slices of bread + sliced ham + margarine < 2min

I'm now conducting an experiment into teriyaki baked ham.

1 ham, 1 home-made teriyaki sauce, 1 oven.

Edit: Actually I guess it's 8 x 0.125 ham, to be more accurate, since I sliced it first so it would heat faster.

Take the fully cooked smoked ham, slice it along with some tasty sharp cheese, and pile it alongside some slices of seeded rye or pumpernickel, with maybe some pickles, horseradish....contemplate and see if anything comes to you. BTW, do not feed the finished product to your son until he is old enough to wash it down with a beer.

I proclaim myself your advisor.

Your experiment is doomed to fail.

I'll wait for the second and third opinions from my wife and son.

Looks like you were wrong. It was enjoyed by everyone.

Set oven to max, put in ham and bake for about 8 hrs, best done if you have an engagement that day.

That reminds of Charles Lamb's Dissertation Upon Roast Pig.
