The Mr. and I like to buy locally raised meat. We’ve been buying pork from a farm in town for a few years now, and usually get a ham in our order. It’s always delicious, but the problem is, unless we throw a big party where we serve ham, it tends to be a lot more food than we can eat in one meal for our family. So, in an attempt to clean out our freezer, we’ve been putting ham-based recipes on the menu left and right. They’re coming…you’ve been warned.
thinly sliced smoked ham
fresh pear, thinly sliced
Crumbled goat cheese
Dip your tortillas in a bowl of water and place in a pan over medium high heat for a minute and a half to two minutes to steam them (until they begin to develop dark brown spots), flip them and allow to steam for another minute. Place tortillas on a cookie sheet and top with layers of ham, sliced pears, and cheese. Broil for 3-5 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly.
This was a great, quick and easy way to use up some ham. G had some issues with his falling apart when he was trying to eat it, but generally enjoyed this, so it’s kid approved. I always enjoy paring sweet and savory in a meal, so this was golden for me. I expect this will be making its way onto our menu again!
