Hormel April - Easter & Beyond

A baked ham on Easter Sunday is as much of a tradition for many households as are Easter baskets and colorfully dyed eggs.

Cured to perfection, Hormel® Cure 81® hams come in countless varieties – bone-in, boneless, ham steaks, diced, cubed – and flavors, including classic, brown sugar, honey cured, and peppered, so however you want to enjoy your Easter ham, Hormel Foods has you covered!

Hormel keeps it simple, just follow the instructions on the package and cook your ham in the oven or in the crockpot (my favorite way, I also baste mine with apple butter).  Or, if you're up for something a little different, try Hormel's Honey Glazed Ham or the Ale and Apple Glazed Ham.

But the best part about Easter ham, at least in my opinion?  The leftovers!  We cook both a ham and a turkey to ensure I have plenty of leftovers to enjoy and use in other meals.  Right now, I've made two turkey pot pies, turkey and dumplings, turkey salad, and I'm saving the last bit for enchiladas and turkey soup.

The ham, however, we have a special plan for those slices.  Just heat up your barbecue, and lightly grill the ham slices.  Cut rings of pineapples (or do what I do and cheat and buy a can of it) and grill those as well, but just for a minute to warm them up.  Toast buns, then layer barbecue sauce, ham and pineapple for the perfect yummy sandwich!
