Have you taken down your decorations yet? We do it on New Year's Day.
Here is a recipe to use up some of the leftover ham.
1 cup mayonnaise
2 10 oz packs of frozen broccoli florets, thawed and drained.
2 cups shredded Swiss cheese (or cheese of your choice)
3 cups cooked and diced ham
2 cups rotini, cooked and drained
3/4 cup chopped yellow pepper
1/2 cup milk
1 cup croutons
Combine mayo, broccoli, 1 1/2 cups of the cheese, ham, rotini, peppers, and milk.
Put mixture into greased 9x13 baking dish
Top with remaining cheese and croutons
Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.
I like to make a nice crusty loaf of bread to go with this and a salad. Nice and easy.
