The star of the holiday dinner table varies depending on geographic location. When I spent the holidays with a friend from New York, lamb was served as the centerpiece. When I went to visit a friend from North Carolina, the star was a big, beautiful baked ham. Because Hamilton Beach headquarters resides in Virginia, we decided to share our favorite baked ham recipe. This is a holiday favorite sure to please everyone at your table, no matter on which side of the Mason-Dixon line you reside.
Baked Hams are best bought extra-large because there are so many uses for the leftovers. They can be reheated later or used at room temperature for ham biscuits (especially delicious for breakfast), ham and cheese sandwiches, breakfast sandwiches made with the Breakfast Sandwich Maker, or as the classic ham and eggs breakfast. The bone can be saved for soup or stock, or frozen to be used at a later time. Leave a comment and tell us your favorite way to use leftover ham.
