Sometimes, you go back to the past and rediscover stuff that is so good, it makes you (well, me, anyway) wonder, “why haven’t I made this more often?”
Such is the case with this deviled ham spread – which I cobbled together from a couple of different recipes I found on line.
Perfect on your fave cracker, and not too, too terrible slathered on a celery stick, either, or, go ahead and make yourself a sammich, you will not be sorry.
•1 can (4-1/4 oz) deviled ham
•4 oz cream cheese, softened
•1/2 cup shredded Cheddar*
•1 tsp Cajun Power Spicy Garlic Pepper Sauce – or your fave hot sauce, to taste
•1/2 cup diced celery
•2 tbsp mayonnaise
•1 tsp parsley
•1/2 tsp lemon juice
•1/2 tsp black pepper
•1/2 tsp Aleppo pepper
•1/4 tsp garlic powder
*I used a Wisconsin jalapeño Cheddar
Beat together the cream cheese, Cheddar, hot sauce, and mayonnaise until well blended, then stir in the remaining ingredients.
Transfer to a container, cover, and chill for a couple of hours to allow the flavors to blend.
Enjoy as you will.
