It’s the day after Christmas and I don’t know about you, but I am, well, FULL. I’ve had more than my fair share of sugarplums and roast beast, and in this nice little lull between Christmas and New Year’s Eve I am going to be serving the Southern husband some nibbles for dinner instead of actual dinner.
I’m also going to be pondering some fun appetizers for New Year’s Eve…and luckily, this easy deviled ham spread is going to work just great for both occasions!
Here’s how you make deviled ham spread!
This is another one of those lovely recipes that whirl up in no time in your friendly food processor.
A cooked ham steak (or cooked sliced ham if you happen to have that lounging around from a holiday dinner), a little cream cheese, a little mayo, a little mustard and a few other things are all processed into a creamy, tangy, slightly salty concoction that is just begging to be nibbled on everything from crackers to celery.
Even endive if you are feeling extra fancy.
I don’t know about you, but there’s always someone in my house who is totally up for getting fancy.
Sorry, not you. Devilish though you may be.
So whether you are planning a dinner party or a light leftovers supper, deviled ham is for you!
