Yes! Yes! It's Hamapalooza 2018! Woo-Hoo! With Seven Ways to Savor That Ham!

Posted on April 1, 2018 with 0 comments

 

Hamapalooza is a state of mind and a state of being, by which I mean...

You've got a big honkin' ham in that fridge, and you and your family can eat only so many ham sandwiches!

Here are seven of This Old Chef's favorite ways to bring a pork-savvy sous chef to your kitchen!

So...  it's Easter!

And in this household, that means Ham.

And as said ham will remain in the fridge for a while, here are some fantastic AND foolproof ideas from This Old Chef to make sure your dinners over the next few days are as fresh as Spring!

I promise a few new ideas, too, of course, but first I need to make the original ham!  (OK, not the actual Original Ham, but you know what I mean...)

We haven't shared our Easter Dinner yet this year (posting soon, of course) so, to tide you over, here's an Easter Dinner from a few years back...
