There are few things I enjoy more for lunch than a good panini, so when I saw my leftover Easter ham in the fridge I knew just what I’d make. The folks at Ile de France Cheese sent me some of their Brie cheese and it made the perfect grilled sammy today. Creamy and delicious, you all have got to try this sometime. Thank you Ile de France!

If this doesn’t float your boat use your leftover ham in scrambled eggs, rice, pasta, a nice chef salad, mac and cheese, scalloped potatoes, pizza, frittata and anything else I may have left out. Sky’s the limit! Let’s all eat ham!
