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.

How to Make Ham Spread

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.
