A Review of Hormel Lean Smoked Ham: Great in Recipes

I often find that many Hormel brand food products are quite affordable and also high in quality. When I spotted a small can of Hormel Lean Smoked Ham, I was intrigued. I love making homemade ham salad and this product seemed perfect for that. I decided to purchase it, try it and write an unbiased product review all about my experience with it. Here is what I discovered!

One small can of Hormel Lean Smoked Ham costs under two dollars. That very low and budget friendly price really pleased me, I must admit. Each can has two and one half servings in it. Not too bad. This ham has a smoked flavor and it is low cal and also low in saturated fat. I appreciated those facts. I love using cooked ham in many of my homemade recipes. I could not wait to taste this product!

I decided to make a smoked ham salad with this ham. It is a favorite homemade recipe of mine. I added the can, undrained, to a large bowl, combining chopped iceberg lettuce, chopped green bell peppers, chopped boiled eggs, diced tomatoes, chopped olives, mayo, yellow mustard and a dash of light ranch dressing. I mixed well, tossed, making sure that the ham was cut into small pieces. This salad looked great!

When I tasted my smoked ham salad, I absolutely loved it. I discovered that Hormel Lean Smoked Ham has a great flavor. It is delicious. I did not have to add any salt to my dish, as this ham is seasoned perfectly. I got rave reviews on my ham salad and I was very pleased with performance of this ham. It is easy to cook with and quite tasty. I rate it four stars out of five stars. I will be buying it again. It makes cooking easier and more affordable. I love that!
