While ham is one food that seems to be synonymous with Easter, it’s actually a meat that we devour quite often. Easy to cook with relatively little effort, you have the option of getting fancy with a recipe or just cook the ham on it’s own. For this reason it’s a top meal choice for busy families, even on those extra chaotic days.
With our Easter/Spring break finally here in Alberta, I’ll be cooking more brunches for the family this week, one being the popular and tasty Glazed Ham and Hashbrown Casserole. While it makes for a tasty dinner too, it’s my go-to for brunches since I can make it ahead of time, so I’m not up with the sun trying to prepare it. After all, it’s my Spring Break too!
Yet, I’m picky when it comes to Ham. A ‘deal’ had me purchase a no-name variety once and it was way to salty and full of gristle for my liking. Taste does matter, which is why I opt for Schneiders Country Naturals Smoked Uncured Ham.
It contains no preservatives and nitrates beyond those naturally occurring in Sea Salt and Cultured Celery Extract. I find that makes a big difference especially in taste, that irresistible smoked-ham flavor makes me reach for it time and again.
Maybe you are planning on making ham for Easter, or perhaps as a brunch or meal any day of the week like I do. Yes, you can have that ham dinner even on a busy weekday. Right now I have the Schneiders’ recipe for Marmalade Glazed Ham bookmarked for our next ham meal, perhaps served with some Scalloped Potatoes. Delish!
