What Can I Do With Boring Ham?

Good Questions

Q: I work at a Boy Scout camp, and we receive a large donation of frozen ham. It seems to be in very thin slices (almost fluffy) and is within date, but it's entirely flavorless. Any suggestions of how the Boy Scout cooks can make the ham edible or perhaps delicious?

Editor: It sounds like this ham is maybe intended as deli meat for sandwiches, but I'd suggest using it in things like pasta sauces, soups, casseroles, and breakfast scrambles. Use a lot of spices and fresh vegetables to amp up the flavor of the overall dish. It's worth a shot!

Readers, what ideas do you have for using up this ham?
