We made an entire ham. For two people. I think we’re insane. We got a free ham from ShopRite around Thanksgiving time. We had to spend $500 in the month of November before Thanksgiving to get the ham. I literally spent $499.99 three days before Thanksgiving and had to buy something else to get this ham. I’m not even exaggerating, I was $.01 short of getting the ham. It was ridiculous. Obviously I had to spend the $.01 for the free ham. And if you’re wondering what I bought when I had to go back, the answer is butter. So. Fat.
Since it is physically impossible for two people to consume an entire 10 pound ham, we got creative and made it into a million different things. We made this hash and it was soo good. I love hash of all types, but especially the corn beef hash in the can. It is one of those things that I never ate in my life until I got married and now I am obsessed with it. You could make this with any sort of meat that you have leftovers of. It is a nice way to reinvent the meat into something else, plus it’s delicious. Next time you have leftovers, make this. I promise it won’t disappoint.
