Pickley Ham Spread Pita Pocket
This is a very old fashion recipe given a kid friendly twist. It is a great way to use up those left overs from Easter Ham as well.
2 cup cooked ham
pita pocket or crackers
onions and hard-boiled eggs (optional)
Chop the cooked ham into rough pieces, about bite sized pieces. Pat dry pickles then chop into bite sized just smaller than bite sized.
Add about 2 table spoons of mayo and 1 tablespoon of mustard. In my house we tend to play with these measurement on who is eating at the moment since some like mayo more, some like mustard more. It doesn’t really matter. It is all a matter of taste.
Inset into a pita pocket and serve with a few chips and some fruit and it is a nicely balanced meal the kids can help make and have fun with. It is budget friendly, healthy and fun.
Traditionally when this recipe came from my Grandmother the ham chopped into a very fine consistently, sometime done in a food processor and was close to being ground. She would add onion and sometimes even hard-boiled eggs. I would find that many kids did not like that recipe so much. This recipe comes across much more like eating a ham sandwich with pickles on it, but with a twist.
