It was a very pleasant surprise to receive these King Sue Ham goodies. I’m not much of a cook though at times I’ll have bursts of inspiration and then they fizzle until the next bout comes along. However, lately, I’ve taken an interest in cooking. Nothing complex just easy recipes I can make for when Oliver isn’t able to cook his delicious meals.
Just ask the kids, and you’ll see their uncertainty and yes, just a bit of dread. I was happy to be able to show them though with a few dishes I made that yes, I can cook food good enough for consumption.
King Sue Ham, originates from the use of the words “King” the family surname and implies royalty and enormity while “Sue” means small in Fookien. A bit of a contradiction there but it’s meant to mean from small beginnings to big dreams.
King Sue Ham is best known for their Bone in Chinese Ham. Their product line though has expanded to include all sorts of meat some of which I’ll share here and what I was able to create with them.
They have a wide range of hams and my family and I got to enjoy their Hawaiian, Pina Style, Chinese and Sweet Ham. There ham is ready to eat and for most of the time, I and especially the kids enjoyed making ham sandwiches with just Jolly Mayo. It’s already tasting and filling on its own.
For this recipe, I used Sweet Ham, but the next few times I made them I also used Hawaaian and Chinese Ham.
It’s a pretty simple recipe, and for someone who doesn’t cook all that much that’s saying alot!

Sweet Style spaghetti sauce
5 slices ham (cut into 2 pieces)

You can slice these into smaller pieces bu I prefer them as they are.

Macaroni and Cheese is my go to meal when I want it yummy and easy. Sometimes, I add ham to the mix and it makes for a more savory dish.
For super quick meals, you can just fry these and make them a meal in itself.
One night we had tocino and chicken sausages and the kids loved it!
These Hungarian Sausages can also be used in your Macaroni and Cheese.
