Deviled Ham Recipe
Leftovers, do you love them or hate them? I love them and I think the reason I do is because I repurpose leftovers into a great new meal. And Deviled Ham is one of my favorite ways to use leftover ham.
Deviled Ham – it’s super easy. Gather the ingredients – ham, celery and an onion. Toss everything in your food processor. It does all the work for you! When it’s done chopping add a scoop of sweet pickle relish, spices and mayo and wa-la! The Deviled Ham is ready!
This is the best of both worlds because it is salty and sweet, creamy and crunchy. Delicious on bread or crackers. Or if you prefer a low carb version pack it in a stalk of celery or top off a cucumber slice. Easy-peasy right?
I make our lunches every morning and this is a terrific spread to use for sandwiches. Added bonus – tastes even better on day two!
Or if you’re looking for other ways to use up left over ham, let me toss a few your way –
Ham and Bean Soup – a perfect way to use up leftover especially if you are stretching pennies! Ham and Bean Soup is an affordable meal too. Slow cooking the beans makes them creamy and delicious. We love a big pot of beans! (Freezes great too!)
Cuban Pork Chops are another amazing dish! A thick cut pork chop stuffed with ham, swiss cheese and the dill pickle adds a salty bite!
Serve up some Heavenly Hash – ham, potatoes, parsley, onions and peppers, oh yes we have a meal! Though the recipe I’ve linked uses corned beef, ham is a great substitute.
I LOVE Split Pea Soup and I think my recipe is one of the BEST for Split Pea. It’s quick and easy. Holding out a handful of the peas and adding them 10 minutes after the cooking starts ensures you’ll have a soup with great flavor AND great texture. It’s simply delicious!
There are a ton more ideas and recipes here on the website for leftover ham – just go to the search bar and type in ham! Don’t forget to save the hambone – there is so much flavor and it’s the start to a great soup!
Be sure to enjoy Deviled Ham your favorite way!
What to do with leftover ham? Use it to make Deviled Ham Spread - salty and sweet, creamy and crunchy. Delicious on bread or crackers.

- 2 stalks celery
- 1/2 sweet yellow onion

Chunk the ham into cubes. Also rough chop the celery and onion. Add these ingredients to the food processor. Pulse until all ingredients are chopped.
Drain the relish well. This will keep the spread from getting soggy.
