Ham was always one of my favorite things about Christmas growing up. We would have a big ole Virginia ham to eat on, and my favorite thing was to put the ham on a little sweet potato biscuit. But ham wasn’t just for Christmas, and we would often have ham for big family dinners and get togethers.
The problem with cooking ham for my little family is that we end up with a lot of leftovers, and one can only eat so many ham sandwiches. That’s where this recipe comes in.
As I’ve mentioned, I love snacks – and nothing makes me happier than a good dip. That’s essentially what deviled ham is to me. I know many people who eat this spread on white bread or on a roll, but I love it on a nice buttery cracker.
Making this recipe, I always use a tiny little food chopper that I have that holds just about a cup at a time. If you don’t have one (or a food processor) or just desire to do things by hand, that’s fine – just chop everything finely.
- 1 cup chopped ham
- 1/4 cup chopped celery
- 2 tbsp chopped onion
- 1/2 tsp mustard (I prefer stone ground)
- 3 tbsp mayo
- 1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
- Tabasco, Salt & Pepper to taste
- Mix together ham, onion, and celery.
- Add mustard, mayonnaise, & worcestershire. Mix well.
- Taste the mixture and add salt, pepper, and Tabasco to taste.
