By Sheree McDonald
Ham is one of those dishes that seems to last forever. While it's nice that you and your family can enjoy leftovers, at least for a night or so, thinking of new ways to use them can get a little tricky. One of the best things about leftover ham is that it can be transformed into some of the tastiest dishes on the planet.
If you're tired of throwing out your perfectly good leftovers, then you're going to love some of these delicious ideas.  Another bonus? The previously cooked ham will save you a ton of time in the kitchen. You'll definitely want to jot these down for later.
