What is Ham Steak?
Ham steak is simply a slice of ham that’s cut from a whole ham roast. It’s most often sold boneless and pre-cooked, which makes it a super convenient meal option. You can also find ham steaks with a bone in the middle, which cook the same way.
When you don’t have time to bake a whole ham, ham steaks are the answer. They can be used in sandwiches, soups, and salads, and can be enjoyed for any meal. When selecting ham steaks, ensure that your package says “fully cooked” so you know you’re getting a pre-cooked ham steak.
How to Cook Ham Steak
This simple weeknight meal is ready in less than 10 minutes.

What to Serve with Ham Steak
For breakfast, serve alongside a cheesy hashbrown casserole, or top with a poached egg!
Leftover ham steaks have so many different uses! Put slices between toasted ciabatta bread for a hearty sandwich or dice up and toss on top of a bed of greens for an easy, work-day salad!
To store, just keep them in a zippered bag in the refrigerator and when it’s time to reheat, pop it in the microwave or reheat in a skillet with a little extra maple syrup and Dijon mustard to refresh the flavors!
