Holiday Ham

Do you serve ham for Christmas? I have never done the research, but it has to be at the top of the list of most popular meats for Christmas dinner, don't you think? But either way, there is one thing I know for sure, there is about to be an abundance of leftover ham to put to good use, so I've got just the thing!

To be honest though, this is now a go-to busy night supper in my house, and the deli meat is perfect. I just think leftover holiday ham, with it's amazing flavor, would put it over the top!

If you're going to have a house full of family to feed for several days, these would be perfect come December 26th, 27th, 28th...how long are they staying anyway?? :-)

Or if you're hosting a casual Christmas party, and want ham, but something easier and more relaxed, here you go! This way you can get out of the kitchen and actually enjoy the festivities!

Oh, and let's not forget about all the football games that happen over the holidays, well into the New Year. These are game day food! No matter what teams is winning, you'll be a winner with the fans!

Ham is definitely one of the things I think of when I imagine a big Christmas dinner. This way I can have that any time of the year I want!

Crock Pot BBQ Chopped Ham Sandwiches
1.5 lbs. deli honey ham, chopped
1 cup barbecue sauce
3/4 c. chili sauce*
1/4 c. brown sugar, packed
1 1/2 tsp. dry mustard
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce 
Black Pepper
Sliced Pickles

Grease Crock Pot with non stick spray. Put ham in, breaking pieces apart with fingers. In a medium bowl combine barbecue, chili sauce, brown sugar, dry mustard, Worcestershire and black pepper. Stir to combine. Pour over ham and stir well. Cook on LOW 2-3 hours, stirring a couple times to ensure pieces don't stick together. Serve on buns with pickles. *NOTE* This chili sauce is not the Asian condiment. It is a sweet sauce found by the ketchup and other condiments.
