Ham and sweet potatoes are a match made in heaven. Delicious together in any combination. So why not in an appetizer? If you need a quick yet different appetizer for your holiday party, this is it.
Making deviled ham spread at home is a win/win situation: five ingredients in less than five minutes flat. And then, just spoon a little onto sweet potato chips and you have instant flavorful appetizers.
Remember back when you were a kid and you ate deviled ham from those little cans wrapped in paper with the dancing devil logo? Underwood deviled ham is the oldest still existing food trademark, just FYI. Well, this is like that, only about a million per cent tastier. Just buy some deli-sliced ham and whirl it in your food processor with a few other things and you have an instant party spread – or sandwich spread you can stash in your fridge because it keeps for a few weeks.
I wish you Happy Season’s Eatings!
Home Made DEVILED HAM AND SWEET POTATO CHIP BITES
For the deviled ham:
8 ounces sliced deli ham, rough chopped (use the good stuff for this recipe)
1/4 cup plain low fat mayonnaise or Greek yogurt, (or a little more as desired for consistency)
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper sauce
1/4 teaspoon allspice
For the appetizer:
Sweet potato chips
Thin slices of red jalapeno
Thin slices of green onion
Process ham, Greek yogurt, mustard, hot sauce, allspice in a food processor until very smooth. If the mixture is not creamy enough, add additional Greek yogurt and process again for a few seconds.
To assemble: Place sweet potato chips on a serving platter. Place about 1 teaspoon of ham mixture on top of each sweet potato. Top with one slice of jalapeno and green onion.
Makes about 24 bites.
