Ham Pate' is a great way to use up leftover ham and perfect for a quick snack for unexpected visitors during the holidays.
  • 1-3 cups chopped Ham
  • 2 Boiled Eggs, chopped
  • ½ cup Onions, diced
  • 1 Celery rib, diced
  • 2 Tablespoons sweet pickle relish
  • 1 Tablespoon yellow Mustard
  • ½ cup Mayonnaise
  • pinch of Cayenne Pepper (optional)
  • chopped Italian Parsley or Green Onions (optional)
  1. Mix all the above ingredients and mix well.
  2. After mixing, you can stop at this point and serve as a ham salad or put the mixture in a food processor and pulse a few times until it gets finely chopped.
The proportions are flexible for this recipe. I don't usually measure so the measurements noted here are approximate amounts. Adjust according to your preference and taste. I also don't add any salt as the ham has enough salt in it to flavor this salad/pate'. If you would like a little kick to it, feel free to add some spice to it. You can also use this to fill jalapeno boats for a real kick. Just cut whole pickled jalapenos and fill with the ham mixture.
