"Not really a recipe but having this on hand in the freezer gets dinner on the table in no time flat! Check out my Public Cookbook for recipes to use this in. In addition, you will also need a good knife (electric works best) and 10 medium ziploc freezer bags. **NOTE**I do not add the salt and pepper but I could not submit a recipe with only 1 ingredient so I improvised**"
Serving Size: 1 (2000 g)

"I actually did this today. Husband and I bought a huge ham and got 4 weeks worth of lunch meats for him, and a few ham steaks for dinners, and 2 bags of diced ham. I usually use the diced ham for homemade pizza with pineapple. I wrap all the ham up in their own saran wrap and baggies and place in one freezer bag. That saves freezer space and expensive freezer bags."
"I do this all the time, too! I use the dices for baked potato bars, breakfast "hash," soups (I love to toss them into a copycat version of Panera's cream cheese/potato soup), salad, etc."
"FYI - This is approximately 4.5 # of ham. I do this same process once a year when ham is on sale. Another way to use the diced ham is mixed in with scalloped potatoes before baking. They are also good on a salad along with swiss cheese cubes, green olives and a basil garlic vinaigrette."
"This is great!! Im laughing at myself for not having thought of this before!! Thanks!!"
"What a wonderful recipe !! Easy as can be and just as Easy to do!! My goodness as easy as it is some of us would not have thought of it. Well I did not think of it till I read your posting...Thank You for the Ring! Thank You for posting. Hugs !!"
"Pamela, Thank you for this recipe. It worked out perfectly. It has save me some much time. I have used it for pizza, pasta dishes and breakfast dishes."
"I do this all the time. We use it mostly for a pizza topping or extra ham in pea soup."
"Such a great idea! I can't tell you how many times over the years I've *not* made a recipe just because it needed just a cup or two of cooked ham when I didn't want the commitment of cooking a whole one (and those sold already cubed seem so comparatively expensive). I did this tonight while I watched TV, and they are freezing now in just the right sized packets. Thank you for such a great idea!"
"Great idea Pam! I cut up all my leftover Easter ham and froze it according to recipe. I used my first paket of frozen ham this morning in omelettes and it was great. Very handy to have on hand! Thanks!"
