Ham Spread for Sandwiches

This ham spread is a fun way to jazz up the ubiquitous “ham-and-cheese” sandwich, and makes a perfect dainty filling for tea sandwiches. It’s also a nice way to foil the plan of a child who enjoys dismantling the layers of her sandwich (I may or may not know such a child…) by combining all the layers into one! I prefer to use a plain ham without any additional flavorings, but it could be fun to experiment with different varieties of ham. If you discover an especially tasty combination, please share your findings in the comments!


7oz ham steak (I recommend Boar’s Head brand)

approximately 3 oz of cheddar cheese

1 tablespoon mayonnaise

1 tablespoon dijon mustard

Roughly chop the ham steak and cheese, and blend together in a food processor.

Turn out into a bowl, and mix in the mayonnaise and mustard until you have a relatively smooth, spreadable paste.

Taste for seasoning, spread on your sandwich, and enjoy!
