HAM TETRAZINNI 1    >Back to Top<

6 tablespoons butter
6 tablespoons flour
2 cups milk
Salt and pepper, to taste
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 (1 4-ounce) can mushrooms, undrained
2 tablespoons diced pimientos
2 cups diced cooked ham (or more)
1/2 lb spaghetti, cooked and drained
1 cup buttered bread crumbs

Grease a 3-quart casserole. Melt butter in saucepan; blend in flour. Gradually add milk, salt, and pepper, stirring constantly until thickened. Add cheese; stir until blended. Add mushrooms (and liquid), pimientos, and ham.

Arrange spaghetti in the casserole. Pour ham mixture over, then sprinkle with buttered breadcrumbs. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 to 30 minutes. Serves 6.


HAM TETRAZZINI 2    >Back to Top<

1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup chicken broth
1 cup milk
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Salt to taste
1 tablespoon butter or margarine
2 cups sliced mushrooms
1/2 cup green bell pepper -- diced
3 cups cooked wide egg noodles
1 cup cooked ham -- cubed
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon dry sherry
1/3 cup dry bread crumbs

Preheat oven to 450 degree F. Place flour in a bowl; add broth, milk, pepper, and salt to taste. Stir the flour mixture well with a whisk.

Melt butter in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and bell pepper; sauté 3 minutes. Add flour mixture. Cook 2 minutes or until thick and bubbly; stir constantly. Combine sauce, cooked noodles, ham, cheese, and sherry in a 1-1/2-quart casserole or a 10-inch gratin dish; sprinkle with bread crumbs. Bake at 450 degrees F. for 10 minutes or until bubbly. Yield: 5 servings.



1 boiled ham bone (with some meat still on it)
1 cup raw peanuts (unsalted)
Fish sauce if needed

Soak peanuts in water to cover well, a few hours or overnight. After soaking the peanuts, place ham bone in large stock pot. Add just enough water to cover. Add peanuts. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer at least 3 hours until the peanuts soften. Taste and season with either salt or fish sauce. Fish sauce works better.

I think it would be nice to put in a few collards or other greens towards the end of cooking (30 minutes to an hour depending on how you like them).

NOTE: Try this if you have a traditional ham for Easter with the bone in; make this the last go round. We took ours out of the freezer from a previous meal. It still had some of the stock/juices around it.



1 boneless fully cooked ham (4 to 6 pounds)
3/4 cup water, divided
1 cup packed brown sugar
4-1/2 teaspoons soy sauce
4-1/2 teaspoons ketchup
1-1/2 teaspoons ground mustard
1-1/2 cups undrained crushed pineapple
2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon cornstarch

Place ham on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Bake at 325 degrees F for 1-1/4 to 2 hours or until a meat thermometer reads 140 degrees F and ham is heated through. Meanwhile, in a saucepan, combine 1/4 cup water, brown sugar, soy sauce, ketchup, mustard and pineapple. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 10 minutes. Combine cornstarch and remaining water until smooth; stir into pineapple sauce. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Serve with the ham. Yield: 16 to 24 servings (3 cups sauce).



1 large center-cut ham slice, about 1/2-inch thick
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup strong brewed coffee

Slash fat on edge of ham in several places. Place ham in a hot skillet; brown quickly on each side. Simmer for 15 minutes or until tender. Remove from pan; keep warm. Sprinkle salt in hot skillet; add coffee. Boil for about 2 minutes. Pour over ham. Serve with biscuits.



2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup frozen sweet butter, cut in small chunks
1/4 cup vegetable shortening
7 to 8 tablespoons ice water

2 medium onions, diced
4 celery stalks, diced
2 tablespoons olive oil
1-1/2 cups frozen corn
2 cups frozen baby peas
2-1/2 cups carrots, peeled, chopped and cooked (about 4 carrots)
2 medium potatoes, peeled, cubed and cooked
4 cups diced cooked chicken, turkey or ham
5 tablespoons sweet butter
5 tablespoons all-purpose flour
4-1/2 cups chicken, vegetable or turkey stock
1/2 teaspoon pepper
Salt to taste
1 egg, lightly beaten

With all the ingredients of a square meal packaged secretly in a round bowl, this tiny potpie is a kid favorite. And because we don't share the food preferences of Old England (where the traditional meal was Easter hare), it's also a favorite of the Easter Bunny.

To make the piecrust: In the bowl of a food processor fitted with a metal blade, pulse the flour, salt, butter and vegetable shortening until the mixture resembles a coarse meal. Sprinkle with the ice water and pulse until the dough starts to come together, being careful not to let the dough form a ball. Remove the dough and press it into two disks. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate while you make the filling.

To make the filling: In a large saucepan, sauté the onions and celery in the olive oil over medium heat until soft. Add all the vegetables, and the chicken, turkey or ham, and set aside.

In a separate saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Whisk in the flour and cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Slowly whisk in the stock until the sauce is smooth. Bring to a boil, whisking constantly. Reduce the heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 5 to 7 minutes. Add the pepper and salt. Pour the sauce over the meat and vegetables. Then pour the mixture into 10 individual ovenproof bowls or two 9-inch pie pans.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Roll out the piecrust on a lightly floured surface. Cover the 10 (or two) pies with the dough. Use a cookie cutter to cut bunnies out of scraps of piecrust. Lightly brush the egg onto the piecrusts and place a bunny on top. Bake for 20 to 40 minutes, or until the crust is browned and the filling bubbles. It's a good idea to place a cookie sheet below the pies to catch any drips. Makes 10 to 12 servingss.



2 cups potatoes, cubed
2 cups cooked ham, cubed
1 (15.25-ounce) can whole kernel corn, drained

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add potatoes and cook until tender but still firm, about 15 minutes. Drain and cool.

Pour into greased 11 x 7-inch baking dish. Cover and bake for 25 minutes. Uncover, sprinkle with cheese and bake 5 to 10 minutes longer until cheese melts. Makes 5 servings

2 cans (10-3/4 ounces) low-fat cream-of-mushroom soup or 1 can soup mixed with 1 can skim milk

In this delicious recipe, we have slashed the sodium and fat while retaining all of the creamy richness of the original. Another plus: The modified recipe is much quicker and easier to make than the original! We reduced the calories, fat and cholesterol by:
* reducing the amount of Parmesan cheese from 1 cup to 2 tablespoons
* reducing the amount of olives from 1 cup to 2 tablespoons
* eliminating the egg yolk
* eliminating the butter
* replacing the whole milk and chicken broth with low-fat cream-of-mushroom soup

Spike's & Jamie's Recipes






5-6 Granny Smith apples (make sure they can stand on their own)
1 tbsp. cinnamon
1/4 cup sugar
1 tbsp. brown sugar
pie crust (homemade or pre-made)

1) Preheat oven to 375F.

2) Cut off the top of 4 apples off and discard. Remove the inside of each apple with a spoon or melon baller very carefully, as to not puncture the peel.

If you’re a skilled interior apple excavator, salvage as much as you can so you can use it for Step 2. I, on the other hand, am not skilled so I just had to throw my interior apples away and chop up additional apples for filling.

3) Remove skin from remaining apple(s) and slice very thinly. These apple pieces will give you the additional filling needed to fill the four apples you are baking.

Mix sliced apples with sugars and cinnamon in a bowl. If you prefer more or less cinnamon make adjustments as desired. Same goes for the sugar.

Scoop sliced apples into hollow apples.

4) Roll out pie crust and slice into 1/4 inch strips. You can also add a strip of pastry inside the top of the apple almost like a liner to add a little more texture/sweetness to the pie.

Cover the top of the apple in a lattice pattern with pie crust strips.

5) Place apples in an 8×8 pan. Add just enough water to the cover the bottom of the pan.

Cover with foil and bake for 20-25 minutes.

Remove foil and bake for an additional 20 minutes or until crust is golden brown and sliced apples are soft.

Makes 4 baked apple pies (in the apple).
