Come Sunday night, you might have a bit of a ham problem on your hands. It’s recommended that you buy 1/4 pounds of boneless ham or 1/3 pound bone-in ham per person for your Easter feast, but if you’re like most people, that number likely gets tripled … you know, for leftovers.

Besides sending all of your guests home with a pound of ham a piece, here’s what else you can do with all of those leftovers:
