I love working with Hormel and their ham is easy to work with in recipes. Usually I’m very unimaginative and I make eggs and ham but when Hormel sends me these really awesome recipes I’m likely to try them. That’s why I share them with you, yes I’m a Hormel Family ambassador but they don’t compensate me, they just provide me with occasional coupons. Sometimes they will give me a gift card but it’s been more than a few months since I’ve received one of those, so I hope you believe me that when I share a recipe it’s because I WANT TO! Try this Asparagus and Ham Bake Recipe, I know I will be trying it.
