Easter ham remix

This year the Lehfelds celebrated Easter one week early. That means I get to reap the benefits of delicious leftover ham a whole week earlier than most (I can hear the jealous sighs now!) This meal came togtether out of necessity - I had no time to go to the store and we had been out of town all weekend. An avid menu planner, recipe reader and writer, this was totally against my better nature, but the results were so satisfying! Unfortunately, I have no photo since this was a thrown-together lunch, so let your imagination run wild... :)

Ham, Eggs and Apple Pita

1 large pita
3-4 ounces spira-cut ham, cut in bite-sized pieces
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 hard boiled egg, sliced
1/2 apple, cut in bite-sized pieces
1 ounce sharp white cheddar cheese, shredded (optional)

Preheat toaster oven (I said this was a work recipe right?!) to 375. Place ham on pita and spread mustard over. If you're using the cheese, sprinkle it on now. Place in the toaster oven and heat about 3 minutes, until pita and ham are warm, and cheese begins to melt if using. Take it out and place egg and apple slices on, wrap and eat!

Oh, this sounds lovely. Quick and satisfying. I'm always looking for ideas for using up leftover ham. This is a great one!
