Dr. Prowell lays out exactly what you should the minute you have Omicron COVID-19 symptoms. Read on for the exact steps.
November may be the time for turkey—but the second December and April roll around, 'tis the season for ham. Be it super-simply roasted with spices and brown sugar or baked spiral-style with apricot jam and mustard, there are very few main dishes that stand out on the dinner table like a glazed and glistening ham.
But with every show-stopping ham comes a lot of leftover meat. And delicious though it may be to munch on a couple slices cold, straight from the fridge (a thing we have all done many times), why not repurpose the ham in one of these tasty recipes? From comfort foods like grits and fried rice to egg-topped sweet potato and ham hash and ham-stuffed biscuits, here are our best leftover ham recipes. Don't forget to save that ham bone for a hearty soup.
