Meals to make with your leftover ham

Healthy Mummy Meal Prep Queen Kaitie says “I find it best to slice up the whole ham as soon as possible and store it in an airtight container in the fridge for 2-3 days.

If you still have leftovers why not portion up and freeze in sandwich bags. Ham leftovers are perfect for Zucchini slice, homemade pizzas and toasted sandwiches!”

Kaitie set to cooking up some of her favourite 28 Day Challenge recipes that she thinks would be perfect to use up that extra ham. See what she made below!
