The croque-monsieur is a type of ham and cheese sandwich

This is a list of notable ham dishes. Ham is pork that has been preserved through salting, smoking, or wet curing.[1] It was traditionally made only from the hind leg of swine, and referred to that specific cut of pork.[2] Ham is made around the world, including a number of highly coveted regional specialties. Ham is typically used in its sliced form, often as a filling for sandwiches and similar foods.

This list also contains notable ham hock dishes. A ham hock is the portion of a pig’s leg that is neither part of the ham proper nor the foot or ankle, but rather the extreme shank end of the leg bone. It is the joint between the tibia/fibula and the metatarsals of the foot of a pig, where the foot was attached to the hog's leg.
