I had no idea what this product was when my boyfriend brought it to my house not too long ago.
However, it’s pretty self-explanatory. It’s slivers of ham cut from the center and end of a larger roast.
These would be perfect to pan-fry for breakfast along with eggs and biscuits, or slice and wrap around asparagus spears and grill. They’d also be good in biscuits or in a hearty sandwich.
We did something a little different with it. Paul cleaned and snapped about a pound of fresh green beans. He sprayed a piece of heavy-duty foil with nonstick cooking spray and put the beans on top. He then sliced a piece of the ham into chunks and mixed that into the beans with a little black pepper, Lawry’s Seasoned Salt and a few tablespoons of water. He closed the foil, making a tight packet, and he grilled it on high heat for several minutes until the beans were steamed, tender and perfectly flavored with the ham.
