Ham Spread
« on: December 09, 2011, 06:30:42 am »
I feel that ham doesn't freeze well, but this dip does. This is an excellent way to use up that left over Ham. The recipe is also handy, in that you can use what you have at hand.

200g. ham,chopped.
20g.sweet chilli sauce, or chutney
10g. Worcestershire sauce
30g Mayo, or sour cream or soft butter
1/4 teaspoon of spice mix. I used Quatre epices that I made.
1/4 teaspoon of Bacon Dust, Optional

Place all in bowl, speed 7/ 20 seconds. Scrape down.
Speed 7 / 20 seconds, or to consistency that you prefer.

Nice in a sandwich with lettuce
Nice on toast for breakfast.
Serve as a dip with vegetable sticks.

Tips/hints from members

hillybilly -  I made one that tastes very similar to the commercial Devilled Ham Spread. Just used 250g light cream cheese and 350g of ham and some black pepper. Roughly cubed cheese and ham and processed for 10-20 seconds on speed 6. Yummy on toast.

Gert - One of my favourites is to toss chunks of ham and sweet pickles (gherkins) in the TMX. Chop and then mix some mayo in.

Jeninwa - I added some gentleman's relish and some pepper berry mix.

Chookie - I've also added a generous teaspoon on English hot mustard.  Plus I've added gherkin relish to the ham & butter and a shake of Worcestershire sauce and a little spice.

Easy to make too. Lovely. Just have to wrestle some ham from my DH. He loves   the leftovers.

yes we do also,  but eventually get tired of it.   Think i must order too large a ham.  I give lots away but still have left overs.

Yes,  but you might have to add a bit more chilli.  Have a taste after the first blend.

I will have to try your spread Chookie, it sounds delicious. I made one on Boxing Day that tastes very similar to the commercial Devilled Ham Spread.

Just used 250g light cream cheese and 350g of ham.
Roughly cubed cheese and ham and processed for 10-20 seconds on speed 6.

Yummy on toast  :-))

One of my favourites is  toss chunks of ham and sweet pickles ( gherkins) in the TMX. Chop and then mix some mayo in. Childhood memories  as my mother tried every which way to use of leftover ham. Ham and scalloped potatoes as well.

I only had 75g of ham left so decided to do hillbilly's simple mixture - mixed it with the 50g of light cream cheese I also had - great to get rid of bits and pieces.  Going to have it on toast for lunch hillbilly.  So many things to do with leftover ham, I am sorry mine is all gone now  :'(

Love all these variations.  Trouble is, I gave most of the ham to the kids.  Think I will go to Istra and buy another bit on the bone.
