15 Delicious Low Carb Keto Ham Recipes: Great ways to use leftover ham for breakfast, lunch or dinner; in soups, salads and casseroles!
It is wonderful to make a nice, big ham for a family gathering and have leftovers. Here are 15 Delicious Low Carb Keto Ham Recipes to give you great ways to use that tasty ham.
Some tips on ham:
The most excellent option for a clean, Keto ham is uncured with no nitrates and no sugars added. If you can find a local farmer where you can buy a ham raised there, that is the absolute best. That is not always possible so here are some other options:
My in-laws live near an Amish market in PA that has whole hams with no nitrates or sugars that are wonderful. I get one or two for my freezer when I can from there.
Pederson’s Farms hams are dairy free, gluten free, MSG free, Paleo Friendly, soy free, sugar free and Whole 30 approved. They are quite expensive if ordered online but they do also have a store locator so maybe you can find one in a store near you.
Sometimes you are at the mercy of what is in your grocery store. If the label says “cured with” and “less than 2% of” salts, other ingredients, sugars and nitrates, that really isn’t TOO bad in the grand scheme of things.
I am not telling you it is or is not OK for you—that is up to you. I often use Kentucky Legend Smoked Ham and it is labeled like I said above.
You definitely don’t want a ham labeled as honey or maple glazed. They are usually 5-6 carbs per serving. At least the ones above are usually 1 or less than 1 per serving. Just read the ingredients and nutrition label on each ham.
You don’t have to use only leftover ham!
If you are like me, you will also buy a canned ham just to have some on hand to make these recipes all year long. Just read the labels on those as stated above.
A one pound can of ham is about 3 cups of chopped ham.
If that is more than you need in a recipe, freeze the rest for another recipe or throw in with some scrambled eggs to make a hearty breakfast later in the week. I love to have small servings of chopped ham in the freezer ready to add flavor like that.
Ham is a great meat for breakfast, lunch or dinner!
For a delicious ham dinner, try Simple Keto Ham with Fancy Dipping Sauces. That often gives us leftovers to use for the recipes below.
