Southern Ham Salad & Smithfield Spiral Sliced Ham {Giveaway Closed}

The Winner of the Smithfield Ham Giveaway is Jessica Todd!

Thanks to Smithfield, my family enjoyed a delicious Pecan Praline Spiral Sliced Smoked Ham over the Thanksgiving holiday. We usually have just turkey for Thanksgiving, but it was nice having the addition of a ham. I love Smithfield Hams because they're simple to prepare. Basically you just have to heat them up, so it doesn't get any easier than that.

I prepared the ham as directed in a preheated 325°F oven. Smithfield Hams only need to be warmed 10 to 12 minutes per pound (do not to overheat). After removing the ham from the  oven, let the ham sit for 5 minutes before adding the glaze. Let glazed ham sit for 5 minutes before serving to allow glaze to melt over the ham. We loved the Smithfield Ham and it turned out really moist and delicious. Everyone loved it especially the Praline Pecan Glaze. 

After supper we had plenty of leftovers, so I separated the ham in packages to use in a few ham recipes (always my favorite part). The ham bone and some additional ham pieces went in one freezer bag for crock pot ham and beans, and the remainder was used in this Southern Ham Salad pictured above. I love ham salad! It's super simple to make and perfect on crackers or on a sandwich. 

All Smithfield Spiral Hams are fully cooked, hand trimmed, and uniformly sliced for quality, naturally hickory smoked and made with natural juices to create it's legendary flavor.
Smithfield offers three glaze flavors and is available at grocery stores nationwide

  • Honey: The sweet and tangy flavor of the Honey glaze makes the Smithfield Hickory Smoked Spiral Sliced ham a hit at any gathering.
  • Caramel Apple: The taste of sweet Caramel Apple flavor is a perfect complement on top of the family favorite Smithfield Hickory Smoked Spiral sliced ham.
  • Pecan Praline: Pecan Praline glazed on a Smithfield Hickory Smoked spiral sliced ham offers a traditional southern flavor providing consumers with a sweet and savory taste.

My favorite ham salad is Paula Deen's recipe, so I included it below.

Southern Ham Salad

2 - cups leftover ham, chopped in a food processor
1/2 - cup finely diced celery
1/4 - cup minced onion
1 - teaspoon Dijon mustard
2 - hard boiled eggs, chopped
1/4 - cups sweet or hot pickle relish
1/2 - cup mayonnaise   

Mix all the ingredients together until well blended. Spread on crackers or bread.

I love ham anyway it's prepared, but I really like to just take slices and lightly brown it in a skillet and make sandwiches out of it.

Unknown said... #

Ham is probably my favorite meat. Absolute endless recipes on so many different recipes you can put it in. Love to lightly fry slices and make sandwiches. My husband just likes to take slices right of ham and use in sandwiches.

My favorite ham recipe is: I get a ham and melt butter all around it, and rub light brown sugar all around it and pour the juice from my whole pineapples around it and bake it, about half way through I put about 4 pineapples on the ham and bake for the other half of the time. So delish and sweet!

My favorite is using the ham bone to make great vegetable soup. I also like the ham on sandwiches or as an entree. I just soak the ham good with Coca Cola and bake according to the recommendation concerning the number of pounds.

Aimee B said... #

I love a ham quiche

Paula kennedy said... #

Nothing better than a ham and cheese sandwich.

Anonymous said... #

I love ham just about anyway you can fix it and buy more than needed for immediate meal! I don't do fancy things with ham, maybe some pineapple, cherries and a brown sugar sauce and that's about it. I then use the leftovers for various items like a good grilled ham and cheese sandwich, ham and eggs and then if any still remains (which is doubtful) I love it for Ham and Beans or ham in an augratin or scallop casserole!

I have so many favorite ham recipes. On the top of the list would be Hawaiian pizza made with bacon, ham & pineapple. Another favorite would be Ham , cheese & green onion quiche.

Joan said... #

My favorite way to serve ham is just simply take a slice of country ham and lightly fry it. With the drippings, make some red eye gravy and you've got heaven on a plate.
