    Sandwiche slices work. You can toast/grill it, too.

    Slice it up in pieces, freeze it, then use it later for pizza toppings. Really small pieces can be added to salads.

    Add pieces to soup for extra heartiness. I'd advise against adding it to chicken noodle, though!

    Usually ham is too salty to give to dogs and cats. It's very tempting to get rid of extra that way, but it's very bad for the pet(s).

    Hopping john is an excellent use of leftover ham. Soak black-eyed peas for a few hours (about a pound or so). Cook black-eyed peas and a minced onion with the ham bone until the beans are tender. If you use a pressure cooker that shouldn't take more than a half hour. Add cubed ham to the mixture. Serve in a bowl over white rice. A dab of hot sauce to taste. Mmmm. Don't you know that's good!

    Use it to make sandwiches
    Add it to split-pea soup
    Have it for breakfast in the morning with eggs and toast

    Ham fried rice is always good.

    That's not what Hopping John is, is it?

    Guess it isn't, huh?

    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    Got plenty myself. The boys weren't too fond of the spiral ham yesterday.

    Chopped ham sandwich for lunch today....will likely be putting some with eggs tomorrow morning.....and by the end of the week, I'll be so sick of ham that I won't want to eat any for months.

    I have frozen baked spiral-sliced ham, divided up into several freezer ziplocks. Then I just thawed a bag when I needed some ham for sandwiches, whatever. It tasted just fine. And it beat eating nothing but leftovers for 3-4 days after the holiday.

    On a related note, my son puts ketchup on his ham sandwiches. Gross.

    Dayaaam! I'm fixin' to drool on my desk just thinking about it. Gotta run out for some longnecks to wash it down, the hopping john that is, not the drool.

    You could make a Hawaiian pizza. How about split pea and ham soup?

    Nothing beats bedding down at the end of a hard work day than a warm toasty pair of ham pagamas.
