Enjoying the Holiday Ham… Post Holiday


Here’s a tasty way to “dispose” of leftover holiday ham.

This dish matches nicely with Beaujolais or Pinot Noir, and this recipe yields 6 servings.

SPINACH AND HAM ‘PIZZA’

Ingredients

• 1 loaf French bread
• 3 tablespoons olive or vegetable oil
• 1 can (8 oz.) pizza sauce
• 1 cup chopped cooked ham
• 1 small onion, chopped
• 2 cups chopped fresh spinach
• 12 slices (1-oz. each) Provolone cheese, cut in half

Preparation

1. Heat oven to 400 degrees F.

2. Cut loaf of bread in half horizontally, then cut each half cross-wise into thirds.

3. Place cut sides up on an ungreased large cookie sheet, and brush with oil.

4. Bake 5 to 6 minutes, or until tops are slightly toasted. Remove from oven.

5. Spread pizza sauce evenly over cut sides of each piece of bread. Top evenly with ham, onion and spinach. Place 4 half-slices of cheese on top of each.

6. Bake 7 to 10 minutes, or until cheese is melted and pizza is hot.
