Ham and Noodles
I love Ham and Noodles. This delicious entree is a wonderful way to use up leftover ham from the holidays. The meal is succulent, savory and a stick-to-the-ribs meal that’s hearty, filling and totally satisfying. Ham is comfort food for me. Add noodles and it’s even more so! This easy recipe is made totally in the slow cooker, even though it’s done in stages.
We cooked a spiral-cut ham for company in October. I asked my husband to keep a lot of meat on the bone because I wanted to use it for another meal. After making my Beef and Noodles recipe, I thought I would give a try using Ham and Noodles instead. It’s very similar but seasoned differently. Plus, I decided to cook the noodles in the crockpot and not use the stovetop at all.
I was so happy with how this recipe turned out. I ate gobs of it. I ended up serving it to my son and his wife and my brother-in-law and another sister back in November. My oldest sister is moving in with another sister and her husband as she’s getting to an older stage in life. My brother-in-law went to help pack up and sell her belongings and drive her car from Florida to Colorado. They stopped at our house on the way through. They were only here overnight but it was great having a chance to catch up.
I recommend only one thing. Don’t reheat this recipe in the slow cooker. After a certain length of time the noodles kind of dissolve into the entree. It’s better to reheat this in the microwave or very quickly on the stove top. If you’re planning on serving and eating all of it at the same time, you won’t have to worry about anything.
Ham and Noodles is really mouthwatering. I recommend you put it on your menu anytime you’re trying to use up leftover ham. It’s so tasty you may find yourself eating more than one bowl!
