Ham Bone & Chickpea Soup

Ham Bone & Chickpea Soup ~Sumptuous Spoonfuls #homemade #ham #bean #soup #recipe

It’s a cold, wet, rainy spring day with a brisk wind that almost feels wintry … the kind of day that just chills you to the bone … and your body just yearns a nice comforting bowl of hot, piping soup. This is a hearty soup to cuddle up with and let it surround you with […]


Ham & Broccoli Breakfast Scramble Supreme

Ham, broccoli, a bit of onion, tomato and eggs all scrambled up in a quick gluten free, high protein breakfast skillet that is healthy, yet surprisingly satisfying. The bursts of juiciness from the tomatoes along with the heartiness of the eggs and ham and the fresh crisp-tender of the broccoli make this a healthy breakfast that is […]


Denver Omelet Stuffed Potato Skins

I made baked potato soup for my son last week, and when I was scooping the flesh out for the soup, I was very careful to leave a little bit of potato edge in the skins, saving them for ME … you see, I absolutely adore crispy crunchy potato skins. I couldn’t wait to bake […]


Ham & Asparagus Breakfast Quinoa

Ham & Asparagus Breakfast QUinoa ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #cheesy #breakfast #quinoa #egg #recipe

Cheesy goodness, the nutty quinoa goes so perfectly with the roasted asparagus and salty ham. Add an egg with that delightful runny yolk and it’s breakfast heaven (if you ask me). The asparagus is almost done and I don’t want it to go … I know, I could still buy some from the store, but […]


Swiss Ham & Asparagus Egg Bake

Swiss Ham & Asparagus Breakfast Bake ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #eggbake #recipe

A lovely egg bake with swiss and gruyere cheeses, chopped ham, roasted asparagus, onion and a little bit of sundried tomato. Instead of bread cubes, I used bread crumbs in the bottom and that gave this yummy breakfast dish a really nice soft & fluffy texture. It’s Memorial Day weekend and after seeing my teenage daughter’s […]


Ham & Asparagus Quiche w Hashbrown Crust

Ham & Asparagus Quiche with Hashbrown Crust ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #brunch #quiche #recipe

I went to a graduation party yesterday … and, as usual at those types of things, there was lots of food. I ate too much, but somehow woke up this morning starving. I had a little bit of asparagus left from Mom and Dad’s garden and some cheese fondue leftover from the other day and I knew […]


Blue Potato Colcannon with Ham

Irish Blue Potato Colcannon with Ham ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthy #mashedpotato #cabbage #ham #recipe

The Irish have this magical comforting dish they call Colcannon … it’s made with potatoes, cabbage, bacon and butter. They even have a song about it. How many dishes do you know of that have a SONG about it? I made Colcannon with my Irish friends recently and we pulled up the song on YouTube […]


Spinach Artichoke Salad in a Jar

Spinach and Artichoke Salad in a Jar with marinated feta ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #saladinajar #recipe

I whipped up this salad on a whim one day when I had to rush home (taking an early lunch break) because I completely forgot there was a potluck at work. There were already plenty of sweets at the potluck, so I was thinking I should throw together a quick salad. I pulled a few things out of […]


Sneaky Cheesy Potatoes w/Ham

Sneaky Cheesy Potatoes with Ham ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #hiddenveggies #recipe

Do you see any veggies here (other than potatoes) … ? … ah, yes, there are veggies, but you can’t see them. That is where the sneaky part comes in. You see, that cheese sauce on the taters? That’s no ordinary cheese sauce … it’s a veggie-ful cheese sauce! Made with cauliflower, carrots, onions and red […]


Creamy Dubliner Ham & Veggie Bisque

Creamy Dubliner Ham & Veggie Bisque ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #cheesy #ham #soup #recipe

This soup has it all! All that creamy, cheesy goodness from a Broccoli Cheese Soup, with that oh-so-intoxicating ham broth, bits of ham and lots of other veggies to really let the flavors shine (and support your health too!) Yes, I know it’s spring and today it’s beautiful and sunny, but just a few days […]


{Copycat} Schlotzky’s Original Sandwich

Copycat Schlotzky's Original Sandwich Recipe ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #sandwich #recipe

Adapted from Food.com and Texas Cookin’ A looong, long time ago, I made a Shlotzky’s Original Sandwich recipe (making the bread dough in my bread machine) and the result was soooo good, you almost couldn’t tell it was made at home. That was way before I was a food blogger, back before I had kids, […]


Ham & Cheddar Broccoli Tots

Ham & Cheddar Broccoli Tots ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #cheesy #veggie #tots #recipe

Slightly adapted from The Two Bite Club I was smitten with this recipe from The Two Bite Club the first moment I set my eyes upon it. First of all, I adore broccoli. It is one of my very favorite vegetables. And then you add some tangy aged cheddar cheese and egg and make it all cute and bite-size […]


Gypsy Ham & Lentil Stew

Gypsy Ham & Lentil Stew ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #leftover #ham #lentil #soup #recipe

There is nothing like visiting someone else’s “hell” to remind you just how good your own life is. I visited a relative this weekend … and she seemed so unhappy with every aspect of her life. She and her husband are struggling with some financial issues … and she is just exhausted with all the things she has to take […]


Making the Perfect Ham

Making the Perfect Ham w Shari's Berries for Dessert ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Easter #Ham #recipe

This year, we started celebrating Easter a week early by making this ham … and, for dessert, we were lucky to have a whole collection of delectable chocolates, cookies, cute little Easter cake pops and fancy chocolate covered strawberries from Shari’s Berries … aren’t they gorgeous? In the springtime, I can’t wait for the Easter feast simply […]


Split Pea Soup w Ham, Potato & Smoked Gouda

Split Pea Soup with Ham, Potato & Smoked Gouda Cheese ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #hearty #splitpea #potato #soup #recipe

I can’t believe I’ve been blogging for over three years now and I’ve posted over 1,000 recipes and I’ve never posted a single recipe for split pea soup! That’s just crazy. I’m a split pea soup lover and I have been from the time I was little. I remember eating cans of split pea soup as a child and […]


Ham, Cheese & Chive Crescent Pinwheels

Ham, Cheese & Chive Cresent Pinwheels ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #portable #sandwich #recipe

Perfect picnic food … they are like little portable sandwiches you can take with you anywhere. Great for dipping in soup, or you could serve them as an appetizer. The best part, in my mind, is that no cans of crescent roll dough were used in the making of these little portable sandwiches. I was looking […]


Ham & Broccoli Quiche Romesco

Ham & Broccoli Quiche Romesco ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #quiche #recipe

The advantage of having Romesco sauce in the house is there are SO many things you can use it for! It adds a wonderful flavor to almost everything it touches. After Pi day this year, I ended up with one extra pie crust. It didn’t take me long to decide that crust needed to be […]


Irish Cabbage & Potato Soup with Ham

Irish Cabbage & Potato Soup with Ham ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #StPatricksDay #recipe

Adapted from epicurious I hear that in Ireland, this soup is made with bacon; however, the Irish bacon is different than the fatty smoked strips of goodness we eat in America. Irish bacon is a moderately marbled cut with less fat than American bacon but a bit more than Canadian. So, since there is no Irish […]


Ham & Spinach Quinoa Frittata

Ham & Spinach Skillet Quinoa Frittata ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #egg #recipe

with fontina & sharp cheddar cheeses This is what happens when you’ve cooked up some quinoa for a quinoa chocolate cake for your (belated) birthday (gift to yourself because being sick on your birthday SUCKED), but you find yourself hungry right in the middle of cooking the quinoa and you realize that you have plenty […]


Grilled Sundried Tomato, Ham & Fontina Sandwich

Grilled Sundried Tomato Ham & Fontina Cheese Sandwich ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #sandwich #recipe

Melty ooey gooey Fontina cheese with juicy lean ham and sundried tomato pesto on homemade white whole wheat bread, toasted to crunchy perfection. It’s New Year’s Day. I unpacked things and cleaned up the kitchen, took my daughter to Panera, changed light bulbs and the furnace filter, exercised, broke down boxes for recycling and put […]


Velvet Spice Red Lentil Soup

Velvet Spice Red Lentil Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #soup #recipe

Soup is more than food to me; it’s a survival technique in the winter. When days get cold and dark and the holiday baking begins and tempts me with empty sugar-y calories, I turn to soup to nourish my body and my soul. In soup, I find a bowl of comfort and warmth, a treat […]


Cheddar Ham & Broccoli Roll

Cheddar Ham & Broccoli Roll ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #sandwich #recipe

I have been wanting sandwiches with my soup, but not really having time to make up a sandwich for myself every day. Last weekend I was pondering this problem, and I figured out a way to make this easy! All I needed was to bake the sandwich into my loaf of bread. I knew ham […]


Senate Bean Soup

Senate Bean Soup ~ slightly modified by Sumptuous Spoonfuls

Adapted from U.S. Senate Did you know every day in the U.S. Senate restaurant they serve this soup? Well, not exactly THIS soup because I didn’t quite follow the recipe (I can’t follow a recipe! and besides, I don’t have an entire Senate to feed), but a soup very much like this. There are two variations […]


The Mighty Denver Breakfast Sandwich

The Mighty Denver Breakfast Sandwich ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Breakfast #Recipe

Think Denver omelet in a sandwich, kicked up a notch in flavor with some marvelously melty Havarti cheese, a slice of juicy red garden tomato and a good schmear of smoky Roasted Red Pepper Cashew Cream Sauce. When I heard that the awesome Swedish Pancake Pan from Swiss Diamond was on its way to my house, […]
