Healthy Mediterranean Cooking at Home

Tag Archives: baked ham dinner

Springtime means ham and lamb in the meat department. They are often on sale now in the market or from your local farm. Ham is always a good buy and supplies plenty of leftovers for several meals. Spring also brings us lots of new vegetables and fruits, so I look forward to using them and developing new recipes with them. I am especially taken with my newly discovered rutabagas. They are very similar to potatoes but contain many less carbs. I decided to try making my potato salad recipe with them and it turned out very well and so delicious. Fennel is also in season and there are so many good ways to prepare it, either cooked or raw. Try out some new vegetables this week and see how you like them.

Glazed Spiral-Sliced Ham

Ingredients

1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup apricot jam
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
5 lb Spiral Cut Fully Cooked Ham

Directions

Preheat the oven to 275 degrees F.

Place the ham cut side down onto a sheet of aluminum foil. Let stand at room temperature 30 minutes.

Mix together the brown sugar, apricot jam and mustard in a small bowl. Brush half of the glaze onto the ham using a pastry brush.

Reserve the remaining glaze. Enclose the foil around the ham and place on a rimmed baking sheet also covered with foil (for easy cleanup).

Roast for 75 minutes in the preheated oven, or if your ham is a different size, figure 15 minutes per pound.

Take the ham out of the oven, pull the foil away and brush the remaining glaze onto the ham.

Place the ham back in the oven without enclosing it in the foil.

Bake 15-20 minutes more or until a meat thermometer inserted into the thickest portion registers 140°F. Let rest 10 minutes before slicing.

Rutabaga “Potato Style” Salad

6 servings

Ingredients

1 ½ lbs rutabaga or red potatoes, peeled
2 hard-boiled eggs, chopped
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons pickle juice
1/4 cup minced bread and butter pickles
1/2 cup finely chopped sweet onion or scallions
2 celery stalks, finely chopped
1/2 cup olive oil mayonnaise
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
Salt and black pepper to taste

Directions

Cut the rutabaga or potato into thin slices, about 1 x 1 inch, or cut the vegetables into cubes if you prefer that cut.

Place the rutabaga in a large pot with a lid. Cover with cold water and add 1 teaspoon salt.

Bring to a boil, lower the heat and cook with the lid ajar about 15-20 minutes until the rutabaga is fork tender.

Drain and place the rutabaga in a medium serving bowl. Add the pickle juice and let sit at room temperature for an hour or so.

Add the remaining ingredients, mix well and taste to see if the salad needs salt.

Cover the bowl and chill in the refrigerator for several hours before serving.

Sprinkle the top with some chopped parsley and a little paprika, if you would like to garnish the salad before serving it.

Fennel Salad With Avocado Dressing

2 servings

Ingredients

2 plum tomatoes, cut into wedges
1/4 of a large fennel bulb, cut into one inch cubes
2 tablespoons finely diced red onion
1/4 cup toasted pine nuts
Avocado Dressing, see link 

Directions

Combine the tomatoes, fennel, onion and pine nuts in a medium serving bowl. Add a few tablespoons of dressing to the top of the salad.

Serve with the remaining Avocado dressing on the side.
