Ham Slices with Shallots & Vinegar

I love, love ham loaf ~ the saltiness of the ham with the luscious brown sugar and vinegar glaze...  So, when I saw this recipe in my Cooking Light cookbook for ham slices, I was ready to try it, and ~ I already had slices of smoked ham in the refrigerator!




This ham is quick and easy and good as an entrée at dinner time, like I served it, or at breakfast or brunch.  The sauce adds the perfect touch, complimenting the smoky taste of the ham.  It’s a great way to use leftover ham from Easter!

The next time, I will serve it with a quiche or breakfast casserole and fruit salad.  It will be delicious…


Ham Slices with Shallots & Vinegar

Ingredients:  

1 tablespoon olive oil
1/3 cup shallots, sliced
1/3 cup red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons water
4 slices smoked ham
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley (optional)

Method:

Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat.
Add shallots and sauté for 2 minutes.
Add vinegar and water; cook until reduced by half.
Add ham and cook for 4 minutes or until heated through.
Remove from pan and sprinkle with parsley, if desired.

ENJOY!

What a great recipe Pam. I love Cooking Light and use it often. My father always had a ham in the refrigerator. I could eat it morning, noon and night. You've brought back fond memories of my parents.

Happy Easter,
Sam
