After Easter What to Do With Leftover Ham?

Chinese Creamed Cabbage
Got leftover ham from Easter dinner? Put it to use in these Chinese recipes using leftover ham. For example, Winter Melon Soup is made with ham and sweet winter melon, available year-round at Asian markets. (If winter melon is unavailable, you can substitute a whole cucumber). For a quick and easy meal during the week, try Curried Turkey (or Ham) Dinner: the recipe calls for cooked turkey but cooked ham can be substituted. And of course, there is always fried rice. Here is a basic fried rice recipe, made with cooked ham, peas and seasoned with oyster sauce. For something a bit more fancy, try Shrimp Fried Rice, made with shrimp, cooked ham and two types of onion.
