Stuffed Ham: A St. Mary’s County Classic

St. Mary’s County Stuffed Ham is a Southern Maryland institution - a tasty one, at that!


Come on down to St. Mary’s County and taste this local treat for yourself. Stuffed Ham can be found at several country markets and restaurants, including: Chaptico Market, Murphy's Town & Country MarketWJ Dent & Sons, St. Mary’s Landing Restaurant, and area McKay’s grocery stores (301-997-1828).   

While it is traditionally served for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter, Stuffed Ham can be enjoyed anytime. The ham, stuffed with greens, onions, and spices, can be found at most county festivals and fairs throughout the year. It is eaten with eggs for breakfast, as a sandwich for lunch, and makes an excellent main course for dinner!
