Hot Ham and Cheese Dip
Hi everyone! Today I have a recipe for you that you can throw together with left over ham from Easter, if you are like me and freeze the left overs. I made some toast points, cut up some carrots, celery, bell peppers and called it lunch. The kids loved it and even better than that, there were no left overs.
1 brick of softened cream cheese, I used fat free but you can use whatever you like
1 tablespoon of Mayo, you wont taste the mayo it helps with the texture
1 tablespoon of spicy mustard
1 tablespoon of sour cream
2 green onions both the green and white part diced
2 cups of shredded cheese, I used a blend of cheddar and Colby cheeses
2 cups of ham diced
A dash of Cayenne pepper (optional)
Preheat your oven to 350, next grab a medium mixing bowl and cream together the cream cheese, mustard, mayo and sour cream. Blend them together until you have a rich creamy texture. Now add in the ham, green onions and shredded cheese. Mix until all ingredients are incorporated. In a small casserole dish or whatever baking dish you have on hand, spoon in the ham and cheese mixture and spread evenly into your baking dish. Sprinkle the top with a little more shredded cheese and bake uncovered for about 30-45 minutes, or until hot, bubbly and golden brown on top. When the dip comes out of the oven, sprinkle the top with Cayenne pepper (optional). I cut up some toast points, and veggies and the kids had this for lunch. They loved it and I loved the fact that there were no left overs.
Live, laugh and love and thank you all for stopping by. Heather
