Ham Spread

I usually buy boneless hams at BJ's which we enjoy and while in Florida Publix has semi-boneless which are excellent.

King Kullen reduced spiral hams and it was such a good price I just couldn't resist getting one. It had a BIG bone which is now in the freezer waiting to go into the soup pot.

Recipe is from allrecipes, which is a favorite of mine and always love reading all the comments. Love it when other cooks leave tips on a recipe.

3 cups ground ham ( pulsed it in Cuisinart)
2 hard cooked eggs ( also pulsed in Cuisinart)
2 tablespoons chopped celery
4 teaspoons sweet pickle relish
2 teaspoons chopped onion ( used a red onion)
1 cup mayo ( cut this to taste)
1 tablespoon prepared yellow mustard

Mix the ham, eggs, celery ,onion  and the relish in a large bowl. In a smaller bowl mix mayo and mustard and mix well. Pour the mayo mixture over the ham mixture and stir to coat. Put in the fridge to chill.

Gabe loved this! Contains all his favorites and recipe was very similar to what his grandmother use to make.

  1. My Mom used to make something like this-she called it Ham Salad. Hers didn't have celery and eggs in it-just onion, sweet relish and mayonnaise all ground up and mixed with mayonnaise. Bob said it was the best he ever tasted.

    Sounds like Gabe was a real happy guy eating this!

    Thanks Linda. :)
