A great way to use the leftover Easter ham. I call these Plantation Ham Cakes because they always makes me think of Tara and the food descriptions of succulent baked ham dripping with red eye gravy that always made my mouth water! These are wonderful with leftover yams, heated and mashed and dripping with butter; applesauce is a good accompaniment as well.

Directions

  1. In a large bowl combine the ground ham, onion, broccoli and beaten eggs. Mix with hands for 1 full minute, or until eggs are evenly absorbed into meat.
  2. Sprinkle anise seed, basil, garlic, salt, pepper, cornmeal and cheese over meat mixture and mix again with hands for 1 full minute, until all ingredients are evenly distributed.
  3. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Scoop about 3 ounces of ham mixture into hands and form patties about 1/2 inch thick. Lay patties in skillet and cook for 3 to 5 minutes each side, or until browned. Drain on paper towels. Repeat until all of the mixture has been used, then serve hot.
  4. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

This was excellent. It can be adapted to use other vegetables such as grated carrot or spinach. The cakes can be frozen and taken to work for a quick lunch, heating them up in a microwave.

I did not have many of the ingredients, but this got me going with the ham. While I loved the way mine turned out (5 stars), the kids did not. My version: Ham, fresh zuchini, fresh celery, a little swiss cut up and parmesan. I did not have onion or anise. But this seems to be a very versital recipe once you have the basics. So for me Great!

Wow, way too much anise seed! The flavor of anise overwhelmed everything else, which is unfortunate when these are supposed to be HAM cakes. On the plus side, they cook up nice and crispy, and are not difficult to make. I would suggest chopping the broccoli fairly fine so the cakes hold together better. The recipe has possibilities, but the anise seed has to be removed from front and center.
