I rarely buy lunch meats as they are full of salt and preservatives, but you could use the meat in things like quiche, fritatta, salads, fried rice, casseroles etc

Fry it and out it on an egg?  Put it in am omelette, make a grilled cheese sand which with some ham in it.  Ummm, make those ham/turkey roll ups with that cream cheese stuffing.  Lol?  I don’t know!

I make calzones with pizza dough, mozzarella and Italian deli meats. You can use the same meats to make an antipasto salad, or make a chef’s salad with things like ham, turkey, roast beef.

My dad makes a BBQ ham dish where you book it on the stove with some sugar, BBQ sauce and vinegar and eat it open faced or on a toasted bum yummm! I believe you can also freeze lunch meat.

I mean this sincerely and hope it doesn’t come off as snarky, but…why not just not buy as much sandwich meat? I wouldn’t go out of my way to incorporate deli meat in to any recipes because it’s simply not healthy for you. Buy in a smaller quantity so you are only buying as much as you will eat (in sandwiches) a week.

ShabbyChicBee:  We do a summer pasta salad with it.  Tri color rotini noodles, ham and salami(but you could sub other meats) an italian or greek dressing, some cherry tomatoes, bell peppers and some parmesan cheese.  We serve it chilled and its really yummy and nice for hot summer nights when you don’t feel like a heavier meal.

Does your grocery store sell yaki soba noodles? I slice leftover turkey up and toss it with the Asian noodles and veggies.

Chicken cordon blue or stuffed chicken (roll up meat and cheese in the chicken and bake- really good and easy!)

Couldn’t you just buy less cold cuts? That way there would be nothing left over.
