Our Easter holiday is pretty typical. It always includes a ham, rolls, some sort of green beans and potatoes. It's low key and traditional. Any sort of deviation from the norm is cause for outcries from the family. We stick to the norm on holidays--period.
However, the meals I serve after the holidays can be deviated without too much complaint. They love a good ham sandwich on the leftover rolls, and ham bone soup. We always have that because I can hear in my head my eighty something year old neighbor and dear friend who lived on a ranch talking about letting it go to waste. "The BEST part of the ham...just...wasted!!" So we make it into soup.
But what to do after those meals?
Make some breakfast for dinner! These ham and cornmeal cakes are absolutely delicious and taste great with hot maple syrup. Actually, hot maple syrup is an absolute must for these pancakes because they compliment the flavors of the ham and cornmeal.
Grab your fork and dig in. It's time for breakfast for dinner! (oh, and it's a fabulous freezer meal recipe too. Check the recipe notes).
