Deviled Ham Spread
Why buy the canned stuff when you can make it yourself? This throwback snack is the perfect spread for crackers or rye toasts.
Why This Recipe Works
It comes in a can, but we think that the homemade version is worth the minimal effort. Using Black Forest ham gave us the best flavor, and ensuring that it’s thinly sliced before pulsing it in the food processor produces a fine, even texture. Softened butter blends better with the ham. We stir in mayonnaise by hand, along with Dijon mustard for tang, pickle relish for a touch of sweetness, cayenne pepper for heat, and allspice for a warm finish. Spread on crackers or rye toasts, it’s the perfect throwback snack.
