Can I leave the ham out overnight?

MazDee | Dec 31, 201405:07 PM

Have read many similar queries here, but can't find them now. I baked a ham today for a brunch tomorrow and am running out of room in the fridge. I wonder if it would be safe to leave the ham out overnight, smoked meat being much less apt to spoil than other meats. My alternatives include: freezing an unbaked quiche (that doesn't have the custard yet, just the veggies) and trying to thaw and bake in the AM; and freezing the baked mini-quiches and thawing them in the morning (maybe putting them in the oven while the large quiche bakes. I do have some pickled beets and jalapeños in there that can be taken out but there still won't be room for the ham! Thanks for you response at a time when you are getting ready to celebrate New Year's Eve!! (Have a Happy one!)
