Cooking & Serving
Dice tasso and throw it into split-pea soup an hour before it finishes cooking for added heat and depth of flavor. Sauté giant shrimp and andouille sausage with white wine, butter and diced tasso ham and serve over grits or polenta for an easy weeknight dinner.
Really, almost any dish that typically uses ham gets a spicy kick from tasso ham. Try it chopped small and added to a potato bake or use as a topping on pizza. Stir into braised greens like collards, chard or kale.
