About the Cut: Ham

Cured ham is leg meat that has been dry- or wet-cured. Hams are labeled according to the amount of water added to the ham during the curing process. Because the leg muscle is a well-exercised part of the hog, ham is surprisingly low in fat.

Tips and Tricks

Butcher's Tips

All varieties of cured ham are either boneless or bone-in. Bone-in hams are traditionally considered more attractive and boneless are considered easier to serve because of simplified carving. Bone-in hams are available in a variety of shapes - whole or as a shank or butt half. Boneless hams also are available in a variety of sizes.

better then expected
by anonymous 01/17/2012
 This was a lot less dry & bland then I thought it may be. I did add broccoli & perhaps next time some onion just because these are a few of my favorite things. Really, you could add whatever veggies you like or even switch the cheese to swiss. Just a thought! ;) My 8 year old son like them as well & they were super easy & pretty fast to make. Will definatly be adding them to my recipe collection.
