Make our hash brown cakes: Combine 1½ cups shredded ham, ½ cup chopped green onions, 2½ tablespoons all-purpose flour, ¼ teaspoon salt, and 1 (20-ounce) bag refrigerated shredded hash browns. Add 2 large lightly beaten eggs; toss well. Scoop mixture by ¼-cupfuls into 1 tablespoon canola oil per batch in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat; flatten slightly, and cook 5 minutes on each side or until browned.
Use as a substitute for higher-fat bacon: Cook finely chopped ham in a skillet over medium-high heat until crisp and well browned. Toss with sautéed green beans, serve on salads, or sprinkle over pasta.
Add savory flavor to breads: Add ½ cup diced ham and ⅓ cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese to your favorite biscuit dough or pancake or waffle batter. Or add ¼ cup finely chopped ham to non-dessert biscotti, like our Savory Two-Cheese Biscotti.
