Ham is typically used in its sliced form, often as a filling for sandwiches and similar foods. Other variations include toasted sandwiches such as the croque-monsieur and the Cubano. It is also a popular topping for pizza in the United States. Furthermore, the versatility makes this a staple of a lot of fridges.

In the United Kingdom, a pork leg cut, either whole or sliced, that has been cured but requires additional cooking is known as gammon. Gammons were traditional cured before being cut from a side of pork along with bacon. When cooked, gammon is ham. Such roasts are a traditional part of British Christmas dinners.

Ham has been salted as far back as 160 BC
