Lemon Honey Rosemary Ham And Veggies

In case you read this post about my glaze I made for ham steak and thought my cooking couldn’t get lazier… here I am to prove you wrong. I included veggies in this recipe so I didn’t have to cook them separately. All I used was:

  • Honey
  • Lemon Rosemary Seasoning
  • Ham Steak
  • Bag of Cauliflower and Broccoli

I preheated the oven to 350, and dumped the veggies into a casserole dish, sprinkling them with lemon rosemary seasoning. Then I put the ham on top and squirted a bit of honey on the ham, spreading it evenly on the top of the steak. Sprinkled the ham with the same seasoning and baked it for 15-20 minutes. Then I stirred the veggies, flipped the ham, and covered the other side with honey and lemon rosemary seasoning. Baked another 15-20 minutes. All done.




Super Easy Ham Steak

Growing up I loved ham. As an adult I loved it even more. Because ham steaks are so easy and quick to cook, plus they take up almost no room in your fridge or freezer! But, I think I’ve been lazy and resorted to them too many times because… I’ve become rather bored of ham. So I tried to spice it up with different seasonings. It turned out great, so I’m writing it down so I remember what I did. All I used was:

Equal part honey and dijon mustard

Lemon pepper seasoning

A Ham Steak

I mixed the honey and mustard, made just enough to spread on the ham steak. THen I seasoned it and baked it as normal… which for me is about 15 minutes at 350, flip it, and another 15 minutes.




Baked Ham and Tomato Macaroni and Cheese

I wanted to make macaroni and cheese with ham and tomato, and I found recipes that included ham, and ones that included tomatoes… but didn’t find one that included both. (I didn’t do an extensive search, I’m sure they are out there.) So I took this recipe from food.com and added tomatoes, as well as a couple other changes.

Here’s what you need:

  • 8 ounces of macaroni (I used medium shells)
  • 2 cups of shredded cheese (I used mozzarella)
  • 8 ounces of ham steak
  • 1 fresh tomato, diced
  • 3/4 cup of sour cream
  • 1 cup of cottage cheese
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 1/3 cup of bread crumbs

And here are my simple instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees while you cook macaroni on stove top according to instructions on box, drain.
  2. Stir 1 and 1/4 cup of cheese in with macaroni, then the egg, sour cream, cottage cheese, ham and tomato.
  3. Place all in a baking dish (sprayed with non stick spray) and top with remaining 3/4 cup of cheese and the bread crumbs.
  4. Cook for 30 minutes.

Something chicken cordon bleu-ish

As the stomach bug continues at our house I have not been cooking anything too exciting. But here’s an experiment I tried a few weeks ago. I can’t call it chicken cordon bleu…. but it’s a similar idea. And it’s easy and yummy. So good enough, right? All you need is:

2 chicken breasts

4 oz ham steak

2 slices of cheese (I used cheddar but it would be more chicken cordon bleu like with Swiss)

Ranch dressing

Bread crumbs

First preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Then put a slice of cheese on each chicken breast. (I ripped them up so they fit the shape better.) Then top with ham (again, I cut it to fit.) Spread ranch dressing over the chicken, then sprinkle bread crumbs on top. Stick a toothpick in to keep it all together and cook for about 40 minutes. (Time will vary depending on the size of the chicken breast.)  Enjoy! 🙂
