    This is a straight forward statement and I don't cook well. What are some good seasonings, sides, etc... that go well with ham. I have a couple pounds of ham and I do enjoy it, but I need some ideas to spice it up as I have no idea what to look to. I am also cooking this ham in a skillet, nothing that special, but I am open to ideas.

      Ham is like butter in that almost anything goes with it. Breakfast, lunch or dinner fare. For lunch make a deli type sandwich on good bread, some lettuce, swish or smoky gouda cheese and good mayo and along with it nothing beats potato or pasta salad. For dinner serve it up with a little sweet hot mustard, a bake or steamed sweet potato, hefty green salad and some good Hawaiian sweet rolls. Of course for breakfast you can't go wrong by siring it very brown in a heavy skillet and a couple eggs cooked your favorite way and hot biscuits with honey.  I'm getting hungry.

      I LOVE eating sliced ham by itself in an Italian-esque meal (salads with a vinegar based dressing, whole MINI-potatoes, toasted mini pita bread rolls topped with butter) but it's good to have something to contrast it with its natural saltiness. FYI: Milk and meat don't usually mix!

        Ha, I've tried milk and I agree. Potatoes would be really good too.

          Specifically the little crunchy ones, they're incredibly easy to make, all you have to do is cook them and they taste fine by themselves! big_smile

            I would assume, you slice them thin and just cook them till they are crispy. Would that be easier to do in the oven?

              An easier way (in which little seasoning is needed) would be to just boil the mini-potatoes for fifteen minutes or so, they go fantastically with any other dish.

    You are also making me hungry. Good ideas. I will be using them. What seasonings would you suggest?

      If the ham is smoked or spiral sliced just heat it quickly in the skillet. Or make a mix a little brown sugar with pineapple juice or cola & a dash of allspice to make a sauce. Cover the ham with sauce, wrap in foil and heat in oven until hot. You can also use that same sauce in skillet on top of stove ... add the sauce and reduce it over hot burner pretty quickly... watch out for hot splatters tho. Good luck!

    I'm fond of Coleman's English Mustard. It's powdered and you have to mix it with water. It is extremely spicy hot and goes great with ham.

      I'm not a huge fan of mustard, but I think I can give this a try. I do like spicy food.

    A touch of sweetness like pineapple or apple sauce can be good too.

      Would lemon be a good option too?

    A mustard and brown sugar glaze is delicious on ham.  We use the classic French's yellow mustard.  It's super simple just mix the two ingredients in a bowl, spoon or brush the mixture over the ham after it's cooked and place open in oven for a few minutes and it's done.

    As for a side dish, scalloped potatoes always went nicely with it.  I hope this helps.

      That works well,  I have done a similar thing with honey and mustard that has the grains in it.
