My stepfather use to make this all the time.  We usually had it served over boiled potatoes and had it for the dinner meal.  Since I was wanting to have it for brunch, I served it over a biscuit with browned ham.  I know most would think the combination of white gravy with carrots and hard boiled eggs is a bit odd.  It's very good, you really should give it a try.  Another great recipe for left over Easter ham.

The saltiness of the ham is offset by the sweet relish, and the mayo holds it all together.  This is a great easy recipe using left over Easter ham.  This ham salad makes a great snack sandwich or would even be good on crackers.

This was really very tasty.  My daughter ate some and dipped hers in maple syrup.  I drizzled some bbq sauce over my slice and it was very good that way as well.  You could assemble this the night before, just cover the bundt pan with plastic wrap to avoid the dough drying out and keep it in the refrigerator.

I made a big batch of pulled pork awhile back and froze a bunch of it in single serve portions. I didn't really feel like the usual sandwich so I figured it would be good on a pizza with pineapple of course.

This dish reminded me of a boiled dinner with a bit of a kick.  The flavor from the sausage and bacon is incorporated into the potatoes.  I served this dish with Irish Soda Bread with Raisins.  I will definitely be making this again.

This is the first time I have ever had or made soda bread.  It's a very dense bread (or at least mine was), but it was very good.  I loved the combination of the sweetness of the raisins and the nuttiness of the caraway seeds.

I've mixed the alfredo and spaghetti sauce before and I wanted the crispness of the corn as well.  This was great and a quick way to throw together a tasty meal.  I served it with the Olive Garden Breadsticks.

I'm not sure about anyone else but the number one reason that brings me back to Olive Garden is their signature breadsticks.  Their salad is very good as well, but even better when served with their breadsticks.  These taste exactly like the real deal.  No more take out for me.

I love lo mein at the local buffet but I'm not real fond of the vegetable to noodle ratio that they have.  I do love my vegetables.  Since I am not able to find the correct type of noodle for this dish, I compromised with ramen noodles.  It was delicious and loaded with veggies.
