Recipe by Ginny Sue
I use this recipe for a quick weeknight meal whenever I have leftover ham. Great for the Easter ham leftovers that are still in the freezer!

First I have to say that I made a couple of changes to the recipe. I didn't have sliced pinapple, so I used crushed pineapple. I was afraid it wouldn't turn out right to bake it that way, so I just mixed the pineapple, undrained, the orange juice, and the spices (minus paprika, plus cinnamon)in a saucepan and brought to a boil, then thickened with a little cornstarch. I heated the ham slices in a skillet, then poured the sauce over and let it simmer for about 10 minutes. It was absolutely delicious! It was a wonderful weeknight meal made in no time. I can't WAIT to make it the next time we have leftover ham, and plan ahead to make it the right way! Both ways would be equally good! Thanks for posting!
