Leftover Ham

I made a ham the other night but had a lot of leftovers.  Try this recipe to help you make those extra slabs of meat disappear.

Ham Griddle Cakes

1 cup all-purpose flour

1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder

2 eggs

3/4 cup milk (use skim – I found it tastes better)

1 cup ground fully cooked ham

Pancake syrup

In a large bowl, combine flour and baking powder.  In another bowl, beat the eggs and milk.  Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.  Fold in ham.  Pour the batter by 1/4 cupfuls onto a lightly greased hot griddle.  Turn when pancakes begin to brown on the edges; cook until second side is golden.  Serve with syrup.

Yield: 8 pancakes.

As for the syrup, I recommend Mrs. Buttersworth.  It goes perfectly with the flavor from the ham (mine still had some pineapple flavor in it).  Enjoy :)
