ever bought ham chips?

I bought these ham chips last weekend. I was like, er, is this old ham? The lady laughed and told me they’re from the ends of large blocks of ham, entirely safe to eat 😆 .

I’ve seen these prepacked ham chips before but never bought them. I notice people zapping them up very quickly because they’re cheaper and great for all sorts of dishes.

Actually it makes sense because when I have leftover ham slices (very seldom though), I cut them up into cubes like these and use them for pizzas and pastas.

See what I made with my ham chips yesterday. Mmm, not bad. My kids are the typical fan guai lo (having non-Asian preferences 😛 ). They don’t like rice but this, they will eat 😉 .

On school days, I just want to cook something quick before I run out to pick them up from school. No time to think. Just grab and throw into the wok 😆 .

    I’ve bought pre-packaged ham cubes before, but they never looked like that. What is that stuff on the ham?
    Is that a fried rice that you made? It looks delicious. 😀

    You should be able to find very easily at your grocery store’s deli section.

    Great idea, they would taste great!

    The white stuff on the ham is ice. Sorry if I scared you 😆 . I threw the whole pack in the freezer because I wasn’t going to use them the same day.

    Yes, that’s fried rice. I’ll be posting this later on Foodarrific.com so you can grab the recipe from there if you’re interested.

    I love those ham bits! I buy them all the time (I presently have 3 packs in my freezer!). We make fried rice, or pizza, or use them in soups & stews, put them on salads, but the favorite for my household is the mac & cheese with ham! They love it!
