Several stores have ham on sale right now for $1 a lb. or less. You can really get a lot of mileage out of the leftovers:
Ham & biscuits for breakfast
Add the ham bone to a 15-bean soup mix
Add all the little leftover bits to homemade macaroni & cheese
and my favorite recipe for using up extra ham:
Cheesy Ham & Potato Soup
12 potatoes, peeled & cubed
1 lg onion, finely diced
1 clove garlic, crushed & finely diced
1 lb velveeta, cubed (2 if you want it extra cheesy)
1 lb cubed ham
3 ½ T flour
1 c. milk
black pepper to taste
Place potatoes, onion, garlic & ham in a large stock pot. Cover with water. Cook until potatoes are almost tender. Remove 1 cup of potatoes & mash in bowl with fork. Add some liquid from pot (1 T. at a time) along with flour until you have a thick paste. Add back to pot. Add cheese to soup & let simmer until cheese melts. Stir in milk & add pepper to taste.
Serves at least 8.
