Frugal Finds: Honeybaked Ham Hambones!

27 Nov

((Singing)) “Beans and cornbread had a fight. Beans knocked cornbread out of sight. Cornbread said, Now that’s alright. Meet me on the corner tomorrow night. I’ll be ready, I’ll be ready tomorrow night. That’s what Beans said to cornbread, I’ll be ready tomorrow night.” Remember that old song by Louis Jordan? Oooo, I can smell the pinto beans! Lol!

Seriously, that song has me up this morning getting ready to go to our local Honeybaked Ham store to pick up nothing else but…..drum roll please….A HAMBONE! This has to be one of the best kept secret to cheap eats that I have never heard of, until yesterday. My sister told me she heard you could buy hambones from Honeybaked ham, and I didn’t believe it until I called to verify myself and it is true. For less than about $10, you can get a beautiful hambone with about 2 pounds of meat still left on to make sandwiches, use in soups, and make a pot of beans. That is fantastic! I will never buy ham hocks again.

So what’s my mission? To buy one hambone and see how many meals I can make off of it. I’ll share a pic of my fabulous find soon. I’m already dreaming of ham sandwiches, ham salad, split pea soup, pinto beans….(still dreaming)….

See you around the corner, with cornbread in hand! 🙂

      I know right! I must have been living under a rock to miss that all these years. They only had frozen ones when I went, but the manager was nice enough to reserve me a fresh cut one to pick up later that evening. Hello! Lol!
