What to do with Easter Left Overs...??

I have more ideas than food-so many tasty repeats you can make from what was our Easter Dinner Menu: bacon cooked green beans, Roasted  ham, crock-pot garlic buttermilk mashed potatoes, Yellow Squash, Zucchini, Onions & Mushroom Roasted Veggie Medley, Homemade sourdough Rolls, Sour Dough bread, hard boiled natural dyed eggs, & chicken gravy.

What are your favorite ways to use up Easter left-overs? 

In the past we have enjoyed: Ham, corn, potato, bacon, and cheddar cheese chowder; ham and potatoes au`gratin; green bean and ham fritata; ham spaghetti; green bean casserole; ham sandwiches; scotch eggs, egg salad; black eyed pea soup;ham, veggie, strata, cheesy-ham latkes, chicken cordon blue, latkes....

For this week we are feasting on our favorites: ham and cheese hot pockets, green bean casserole w/tuna and noodles, green bean ham and potatoes, latkes with veggie medley,  ham, veggie, and cheese strata, scotch eggs, egg salad on rolls, & montecriso style deliciousness,  hard boiled eggs and ham breakfast sandwiches...
