Ham Salad Sandwich

I was digging around in the freezer when I came across a container of leftover smoked ham. My first thought was to make your standard ham-and-cheese sandwiches, but after more pondering, I decided that a ham salad sandwich would be way better. And it was. So much better.

A Great Ham Salad For Wraps, Too

This ham salad was fantastic on a sandwich. It has a nice bit of a crunch, and a little kick from the Cajun seasoning (I used more than a dash). The salad is also great in a wrap. And even fantastic on crackers. Got a fru-fru fancy luncheon planned? Yep, finger sandwiches with this salad are bound to impress everyone.

I’m Boiled Egg Challenged

I absolutely stink (best word I could think of) when it comes to making boiled eggs. Hard or soft, doesn’t matter. I am egg challenged. So I picked up a little cheap egg cooker like the one below. This lil baby cranks out 6 eggs in about 15 minutes and they’re perfect each and every time! I don’t even feel bad any more that I just cannot make boiled eggs!

You can use precooked ham from your grocery instead of a home-smoked one, of course.

Also try my delicious ham and egg sandwiches.
