Deviled Ham



I had a fair amount of ham leftover after Easter Brunch and decided I wanted to try to make Deviled Ham.

I grew up on the stuff in a can, and have to say I adore the greasy, salty, gritty taste!

However, after tasting this, I do have to say that home made Deviled Ham is easy to make yourself, and about a thousand times better that the stuff in the can. And as an added bonus, you can add whatever flavors you wish!

1 pound smoked ham, cut into 1-inch cubes
1/2 cup mayonnaise (you may need more)
1/4 cup prepared mustard
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 tablespoons hot sauce (recommended: Tabasco)
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
2 teaspoons paprika (I used 1)
1 teaspoon mustard powder
Salt
Pepper

Directions:

Chop your ham up in a food processor to the consistency you wish, transfer to a bowl.

I also used the food processor to dice my onion, I used 1/2 an onion, add to your bowl of ham

Add the remaining ingredients, taste for seasonings, adjust to your liking, and serve on crackers or a sandwich!

Cheryl, this is a terrific idea! I have ham in the freezer leftover from Easter, now i have a great recipe from you on what to do with it!

Oh my gosh, I would so love this. I used to have that spread as well, I can't remember the name of it, but it came in a tiny can and the can was "wrapped" in a paper label.

I will definitely be giving this a try. I love how you used smoked ham, and added both the hot sauce and mustard powder. Those toast points look so pretty,too! YUM!

Ah, just remembered ... Was it called Underwood Deviled Ham?

Wow! I am not a ham eater normally, but I would actually eat a sandwich with this on it!

Adding two tablespoons of sweet relish, and two small dill pickles finely chopped makes it even better. A little garlic doesn't hurt either.
