Ham and Cream Cheese Spread

This is an unbelievably easy, very tasty and impressive holiday appetizer. Five ingredients, you won't believe that after you taste it!

 This recipe has been in my family for a good 30 years plus. It's a great treat to make for a party. You can easily shape it into anything. For this time of year, I thought it would look cute shaped into a Christmas tree!

My mom is quite the gourmet cook and she still makes this for parties. She likes to shape hers into a pig and add olives for eyes. A heart shape would be nice for Valentine's day. Egg for Easter. This recipe is very versatile!

With the leftovers you can add onto a toasted bagel. Add into a chicken breast and then bread it for stuffed chicken. On top of eggs for breakfast. Seriously, the possibilities are endless!


2 8 ounce packs of cream cheese, softened
1 tablespoon worcestershire
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
3 2 ounce packs Buddig ham, chopped into squares
3-4 green onions, finely chopped

In a medium bowl add cream cheese, worcestershire and garlic powder. Mix well.

Add green onions and chopped ham, mix until well incorporated.

Shape and cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least one hour. Essentially overnight works best. Serve with crackers, pita squares, bagel crisps, etc.

Add cream cheese, worcestershire, and garlic powder. Mix

Chop ham into little squares

I like to use scissors to cut my green onions, easy and quick!
I think I need some new scissors :)

Add ham and onions. Mix

Shape into desired shape

I chose a tree

Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate

Adding curled parsley and crackers makes it ready for the party!

Serve with love!
