Ham Spread

This recipe comes from the McCall's Cooking School cookbook. It is originally called Ham Pate en Croute. I changed the recipe a bit, so I'll post it as it is in the cookbook and make my alterations in parenthesis. I have made this for many, many parties. It is always a huge hit.

No-Cook or Other

Ingredients

1/2 c
butter, softened (i use cream cheese)
2 c
ground ham (i use finely diced deli ham)
2 Tbsp
parsley springs chopped
2 Tbsp
chives chopped
1 Tbsp
grated onion
1 Tbsp
garlic minced
1 Tbsp
dry mustard (i use dijon)
1/4 Tbsp
black pepper
3 Tbsp
heavy cream (i use canned milk)
2 tsp
prepared mustard
2 tsp
worcestershire sauce
1
french bread loaf or assorted crackers

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Beat butter (or cream cheese) until light and fluffy. ***I found the butter to be way too greasy, so I tried cream cheese and everyone loves it.
2
Gradually add ham mixing well until thoroughly combined.
3
Add all other ingredients and mix well. Cover and refrigerate.
4
Cut off ends of french bread and using a bread knife, carefully hollow out the loaf. Stand the bread on end and carefully stuff with the ham filling.
5
Refrigerate until firm. Remove and cut into slices.
6
***I do not fill the bread with the ham spread. I found it fairly difficult to do, and the bread got a bit soggy. Rather, I serve the ham spread with the sliced bread and crackers.
