Red Beans and Rice



Homemade red kidney beans made with dried beans, and slow stewed with the Trinity, bacon, smoked sausage and a good ham bone or ham hock, served over hot rice. Served here with a pan seared pork chop and Southern green beans. Heavenly.



Deviled Ham Salad



Old School Deviled Ham Salad, made with ground ham, sweet pickles, pimentos and mayonnaise. My version adds in celery and onion, and a little horseradish, spicy mustard, hot sauce and Cajun seasoning with the mayonnaise.



Lady Cream Peas



Lady cream peas, seasoned with smoked tasso or ham, onion, garlic and fresh herbs, served with a side of cornbread and pictured here, with broiled chicken.



Senate Bean Soup



My version of the famous ham and bean soup, made with a ham bone stock and a mixture of veggies and Navy pea beans, based on the one served at the U.S. Senate Restaurant every day.



Croque Madame or Monsieur



A hot ham and cheese sandwich, covered with a creamy Béchamel sauce, and finished with a fried egg. Simply omit the egg for a Monsieur.



Green Gumbo



A traditional gumbo made of multiple greens such as collards, turnip greens, cabbage, kale and spinach, and a wide variety of meats, often a ham hock, smoked sausage or smoked ham, cooked bacon, Italian sausage and Mexican chorizo.



Old School Ham Bone Beans



Somewhere between a soup and stew, all thick and creamy and soothing, this full bodied and flavorful pot of white beans is all due to the ham bone.



Ham and Potato au Gratin Casserole



A delicious potato casserole, using both leftover vegetables and ham, baked in a creamy cheese sauce.



Black-eyed Pea Jambalaya



Our Deep South version of the low country favorite, Hoppin' John, this Black-eyed Pea Jambalaya contains bacon, ham, spicy smoked sausage, black-eyed peas and rice.



Cajun White Beans



White beans, seasoned with the Trinity, garlic, green onion, parsley, bacon and andouille sausage or ham, or use a combination of both. Serve over white rice.



Ham and Egg Salad



Made with ham and boiled eggs, green onion, celery, mayo and mustard. It's a definite Southern favorite. Add your favorite pasta and a few add-ins like shredded or cubed hard cheeses, thawed, frozen peas, sliced olives, chopped carrot, cucumber, green, red or yellow pepper, pickles, jalapeno and/or halved cherry or grape tomatoes, and you have a fantastic pasta salad!



Breakfast Quesadilla



A nice change from the usual, sandwich those scrambled eggs between flour tortillas along with some cheese and ham or bacon, and you have a great breakfast quesadilla.



Ham and Cabbage Soup



A simple soup made from a chicken broth base, with leftover ham, bacon, a ham hock and cabbage.



Mini Italian Sandwiches



Perfect minis for a party, these sandwiches are layered with provolone cheese, ham, salami and your choice of Italian cold cuts. Finish with a creamy Italian dressing, lettuce, tomatoes and olives.



Southern Butter Beans (Large Limas)



Large lima beans, or butter beans as we refer to them in my part of the Deep South, are stewed down to a creamy texture, and with this mix of seasonings, are just pure comfort food.



Ham and Macaroni Salad



A classic macaroni salad of smoked ham, shredded or cubed cheese, celery, onion, and a Ranch dressing. From there you should make it your own!



Southern Peas
Black-eyed Peas, Crowders, Purple Hull, Field Peas



Southern peas cooked down with the holy Trinity of cooking, bacon, jalapeno, a ham bone or ham hock, and a few seasonings. Black-eyed peas are pictured here.



Stewed Baby Lima Beans



Baby lima beans, stewed down to creamy perfection and seasoned nicely with bacon and ham, are as at home as a side dish as they are a main dish, when paired up with a nice garden salad, cornbread and sweet tea.

  1. Great looking dishes for the ham Mary - I'd eat them all. We made your Senate been soup last week while it was cold and really enjoyed it.
