Christmas Ham Leftovers
Some might say the best part of a meal is the leftovers…And for the Holidays, we couldn’t agree more! Keep reading for a few delicious ways to use Christmas ham leftovers.
How long do ham leftovers stay good?
We suggest storing ham leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for no more than 5 to 7 days. Or, store in a Gallon Freezer Ziploc bag for 3 to 4 months.

Leftover ham, swiss cheese, and dijon mustard wrapped in flaky puff pastry, then topped with a simple garlic butter and poppy seeds.
Ham & Swiss Pinwheels
- 5 Henry & Henry Puff Pastry Squares (#2443), thawed but still cold
- 1/2 lb. leftover ham, sliced
- 2 Tbsp dijon mustard
- 8 oz. sliced Swiss cheese
- 4 Tbps Kirkland Salted Sweet Cream Butter (#1723), melted
- 1/2 tsp AP Premium Garlic Powder (#1021)
- 2 Tbsp AP Parsley Flakes (#1426)
- 1 tsp poppy seeds
- First, preheat oven to 350F. Then, spray an 8×8 pan with Vegalene Buttery Delight (#1576).
- Now, spread mustard onto each puff pastry square, followed with sliced ham and swiss cheese. Then, roll up each square and slightly pinch the edges to seal. Cut into 5-1 inch pieces, then place into the baking dish.
- Then, whisk together the butter, garlic powder and parsley. Use a basting brush to spread on top of the pinwheels, then sprinkle with poppy seeds.
- Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown and flakey.
