Hey, who out there has leftover ham? You ate it?! No! Well, here I make a huge New Years ham with the southern Black-eyed Peas, etc. and we have a ton left. I freeze the bone and big chunks for later, but there’s a big ‘box’ of it for sandwiches, ham n’ eggs, and my hubby’s favorite PVCC Special sandwiches (Paradise Valley Country Club)-which will NEVER make it to the ‘Healthy Eating’ Blog because they are cheese and ham swimming in butter, all held together with an egg and mounded on buttered toast! O M G!!
But there comes a day that whatever’s left is either cooked for dinner or frozen. So, I made my version of Hoppin’John and I had enough left for something else small. Hmmm, Devilish Haaaaam! I love that stuff like Alabaman’s love pimento n’ cheese!
I thought I should check out some other recipes on the Net to see what other folks do. I was surprised that almost none of them were what I make. I like mine better, so they can have their ‘deviled ham’. Most rely on hot sauce, horseradish, vinegar and a very few would add a dab of pickle relish. Although, they all have mayo and some way too much of it, which wouldn’t make the Healthy Eating blog any sooner than Jonny’s PVCC gut buster! . So, I think I need to jump in with my 2 cents (or a buck n’ a half) to share MY version. So very baaaaaaad – and so very gooood.
Step 1: Gather your goodies and dust off that food processor.
Step 2: Toss in the food processor and pulse it to the ‘Alpo’ stage – yeah, it ain’t pretty. Awwww, but you can’t smell it though…sorry, there’s no app for that. It’ll be on the iPhone 9.
Step 3: Pick your platform. They’re all good. Feeling fancy, try the Water Crackers. Feeling Festive then fill the tortilla cups. I was out of whole wheat saltines, so they didn’t make the photo. They’re my healthy go-to snack platform. Then there’s Pita – nothing is bad on a pita chip! Not that I’ve found, and I keep looking!
This makes about 2 1/2 cups, which is 6 – 1/4 cup servings. No, that 2 Tablespoon serving will never work here! Still, it’s 117 cal., 6.9g fat and that analyzer has no idea how much white stuff I picked off that ham.
Finale: There’s a close-up… spicy, hammy goodness. Remember, this is Devilish Ham so this ain’t no girly snack – the men will eat it. But probably only on a Frito, so much for healthy.
