There is a place near here that cooks and does the glazed spiral ham just like the famous Honey Hill but much cheaper. They only do so many for Nob Hill Grocery store so you have to order real early. They charge $40 and it comes with the spiral rack to set it up in and serve.
I called Honey Hill out of curiosity and they wanted $55.00. I'am looking for a couple of nice dishes to go along with it. Do not want to fix scallop potatoes. What would you serve ?
I always serve egg casserole. Just take boiled eggs and cut in half, place face down in casserole sprayed with PAM. Then pour a jar of alfredo sauce (can use Ragu light alfredo), then sprinkle with parmesan, pepper, paprika and a dash of nutneg. Bake until hot and bubbly. Delicious!
Anonther idea would be baked beans, cornbread salad, or escallpped pineappl (pineapple casserole), or some sweet potato casserole.
The sweet potato cassarole sounds yummy. Do you by chance have a receipe for this ? I bet Jellybean would like it also.
Funeral potatoes are good and not nearly as much work as scalloped.
Some days, I can literally see the testosterone floating in the air around here.
sounds good to me...I would serve 7 layer salad and the party potatoe casserole, asparagus and of course some good rolls...that's 3 sides and rolls but all go so well with ham and could be make in advance.
Ok, I gotta ask. What are the party potatos and funeral potatos ?
CB ~ I got this recipe over on the recipes board but I have not made it, I LOVE sweet potato casserole but I always ask others to make it, lol.
DD's step-mom makes one with marshmallows that has some kind of caramel layer underneath, it was yummy!
Anyway, here you go...
Best Ever Sweet Potato Casserole EverThis recipe has pretty much spoiled me for other sweet potato casseroles. I've tried the ones with marshmallows in them and they just aren't as good. I've also experimented with orange juice, but haven’t' found one I like as well.3 cups mashed, cooked sweet potatoes (if you're like me and don't want to boil fresh, get one large can. The big one and one normal sized can and that will equal approximately three cups mashed)1 cup sugar1/2 cup melted butter2 eggs, well beaten1 tsp vanilla1/3 cup milk1/4 tsp nutmeg1/4 tsp cinnamonCombine all ingredients and spoon into casserole. Cover with topping:Topping:2 cups Rice Krispies1 cup chopped pecans1 cup brown sugar1 stick butter, meltedMix all ingredients and spoon over casserole.Bake casserole 30 min at 400 degrees. Topping will be browned.
Honey Ham reminds me of Christmas.. But I will eat Ham anytime of the year. I LOVE Honey Baked Ham... Some people don't eat Ham at all although they are not vegetarian.
We always have cheesy potatoes made with the shredded frozen hashbrowns, and a green veggie, usually brocolli, or maybe greenbeans. Sometimes also a tossed salad. We don't care for the spiral cut. Just get a big ham and then there are plenty of left overs for DD and her family and DH and I. I'm hungry for ham now!
I think that sweet potato casserole would be good.
If you want two sides that are completely do-ahead, how about potato salad and fruit salad. Each would do a nice job balancing out the saltiness of the ham.
Easter dinner is always the funeral potatoes(only I used cream of mushroom and sliced raw potatoes....) and fresh asparagas....with the ham! no need for anything else!
2 lg bags of frozen hashbrowns (completely thawed)
1lg container of heavy whipping cream
1 sm container of heavy whipping cream
salt/ pepper/ onion powder
layer potatos, salt, pepper and onion powder (or onions) to taste in 9 x 13 pan. Once potatos are used up pour heavy whipping cream in. Cover and put in fridge until the next morning. Stir well. Pull out and let sit on counter till almost room temp. Stir again. Preheat oven to *425 and uncover. Cook for about 1 1/2 hours.
My kids just love this and call them Christmas potatos. They would be depressed if I had ham without the potatos. lol So, we have Christmas potatos for Easter!
My baked mac n cheese and baked beans. Ive been thinking I'll make a turkey forEaster,but I might change my mind and bake a ham.
I'd go with asparagus for sure.
I didn't know Snob Hill did those hams...I'll keep that in mind.
