Fried ham slices
This is probably one of my favorite desserts, partly because it is not too rich. It is a very light dessert. It is especially good to keep one made up in the freezer for when unexpected company comes by. I also like to use it for graduation parties, baby showers etc. because I can make it a week ahead of time and that means one less thing to have to deal with the day of the special event!
1 cup flour
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup nuts
1/2 cup butter, softened
Mix and slightly press or crumble into a 9×13 pan. Bake at 350° for 20 minutes. Stir occasionally while baking to make crumbly. When cooled, remove 1/3 of it to save to sprinkle on top of the dessert. Evenly spread out the remaining portion in the pan.
2 egg whites
2/3 cup sugar
1 10oz. package of strawberries
2 Tbsp. lemon juice (must use)
1 small container whipped topping
Place first 4 ingredients in a large mixing bowl and beat at high speed for 10 minutes or until it forms stiff peaks. Be sure to use a large mixing bowl because this really increases in volume. Fold in whipped topping and spread over crust, Sprinkle with the 1/3 cup of crumbs you saved back. Freeze for 3-6 hours or overnight.
i love making those fried ham slices… i can normally give 3-4 people a piece of the ham without breaking my budget… nice size pieces too… add sweet potatoes (they have instant sweet potatoes, not so great but its good in a pinch of time and well, it is different)… 2 types of vegis and there you go…
the only downfall with ham is that its super salty! … i try soaking mine for a bit in cold water but that doesnt really help…
the ham steak in the picture looks really good :D …
we have a dozen of those canned hams (the really small ones) and i told hubby we need to eat those bc they will go bad .. he says no but i say yes… so i am not sure who is right! …
thanks for posting this… :D …
now i know what we will be having for dinner tonight :D HAM! … hehehee :D…
hope all is well with the family :D :D
yep we had ham steaks tonight but they didnt come out looking as good as the one in the picture… :D … my son cooked them and well, he put the temp too high on the stove… hubby said they didnt look burnt but they tasted like they were… not sure what he did tho… i had to work tonight so my son made dinner for him and hubby…
oh well… next time i will cook them :D … hehehehhee :D…
