My sister shared this recipe years ago. I have served this countless times and it is always well received. The better the ham the better the results. This would be a great addition to a graduation party or any buffet. Serve it right beside your tried and true cheese ball.

Prep:

45 Min

Ingredients

2 c
chopped cooked ham
1/2 c
good mayo
8 oz
cream cheese, room temperature
4 dash(es)
tabasco
2 Tbsp
dried parsely flakes
2 Tbsp
dried onion flakes

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Chop or grind ham. Food processor or blender can be used. Blend other ingredients into the ham. Blend well.
2
If desired, mixture can be served at this point with crackers.My preferred method of serving is to chill ham mixture in a bowl for at least two hours. Then form mixture into a ball. Roll ham ball in a mixture of chopped pecans and dried parsely flakes. Ham ball should be served with a substantial cracker or sliced baguette. The ham ball mixture can easily be refrigerated for one or two days--but roll in parsley and nut mixture within 30 minutes of serving for best results.

I suggest using good ham. I also suggest using only mayo. This is a great recipe for leftover baked ham. You may find this recipe a good one be used for creativity. I've been intending to use chopped sun dried tomatoes in the mix but I haven't tried it yet.
