Brussel sprouts with leftover Holiday ham

If youre like me, you got sent home with a metric shit-ton of ham after the holidays and are now wondering what to do with it. Honestly you can only eat so much ham by itself, ham and eggs gets old pretty quickly and a few ham sandwiches later most anyone will consider vegetarianism. So what to do with that half pound of ham chilling in your fridge? Well, one idea is to use it to add some flavor to some veggies!

Brussel Sprouts with Ham

Ingredients
1/4 cup finely diced ham
1/2 finely diced onion
15 brussel sprouts
olive oil
salt and pepper

Heat oil in a large saute pan. Add onions and ham and lightly stir fry until the onions are translucent. Cut the brussel sprouts in half and add them to the pan. Saute until the brussel sprouts are tender and the ham starts to crisp. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Easy huh? I like this recipe because the ham takes on an almost baconey taste and adds a little smokiness to the brussel sprouts. Plus its a healthy way to use up some of those ham leftovers! Ive still got at least half a shit-ton of ham left in my fridge so Im sure I’ll be posting up some more recipes over the next few days. bon appetite!
