baked ham with sweet potato pancakes and zucchini

I love ham. I love it in the way where I’m reminded of that scene from Anchorman: “Scotchy, scotch, scotch.” Like that.

Anyway, I digress. I don’t usually do a lot of sweet potatoes in the house, not on purpose, just because I forget. But Real Simple recently had a page that showed a few different ways of using them and I got sucked in. 🙂 So… we’re having sweet potato pancakes with our hammy, ham, ham tonight.

It’s simple to do: Mix coarsely grated sweet potatoes with grated onion and chopped fresh sage; season with salt and pepper. Pan-fry spoonfuls of the mixture in olive oil until crisp and cooked through.

Thanks, Real Simple. xoxo.

For those of us paying attention to meal planning and leftover rationing, I cut a boneless ham in half, froze two halves.  One half was removed to be baked.  We still won’t finish the whole thing, and I’ll be dicing it up for a casserole in a little over a week. Yay for using all of it!
