I thought since many of you served ham on Easter you would appreciate having some gluten free ham recipes to use up your leftover ham. They include breakfast to dinner and casseroles to empanadas. While many of these dishes contain cheese they can easily be made dairy-free and vegan by using dairy-free substitute cheese. Just be sure to use a gluten free brand. My favorite brand is Follow Your Heart. If you cannot locate this brand try the Daiya brand. It’s my next favorite. My favorite brand of gluten free pasta is Barilla and Jovial Egg Pasta.
Meanwhile, I hope you had a wonderful holiday with family and/or friends.
