Ham Salad

Ham salad is a traditional Anglo-American salad. Ham salad resembles chicken salad, egg salad, and tuna salad (as well as starch-based salads like potato salad, macaroni salad, and pea salad): the primary ingredient, ham, is mixed with smaller amounts of chopped vegetables or relishes, and the whole is bound with liberal amounts of a mayonnaise, salad cream, or other similar style of salad dressing, such as Miracle Whip.

Ham salad generally includes cooked, cold ham which has been minced, cubed, or ground; the mayonnaise or other dressing; diced sour or sweet cucumber pickles or cucumber pickle relish; and perhaps chopped raw celery, green pepper, or onion. Raw cucumber, shredded carrot, pimento, sweet corn kernels, or tomato are sometimes used. Very often, the salad is mixed or garnished with generous quantities of chopped hard-boiled egg; less frequently, grated cheese may be used, or peas or boiled potato may be added to bulk out the dish. The salad is kept chilled until serving.

Like other mayonnaise-bound meat salads, the finished dish typically has a chunky, grainy, or pasty texture, and is frequently served as a spread upon crackers or upon bread in a sandwich.

Ham salad is still very popular in western Pennsylvania, and is also fairly popular in the Upper Midwest, Mid-Atlantic and Southeastern regions of the United States, which have long histories of pork and ham production.

As with other Anglo-American salads, the recipe for ham salad has many regional and family variations. Similar salads are made using chopped or ground bologna, Spam, and other cured or potted meats and sausages.

 

 

 

Egg Salad

Egg salad is part of a tradition of salads involving protein mixed with seasonings in the form of herbs, spices, and other foods, and bound with mayonnaise. Its siblings include chicken salad, crab salad, ham salad, lobster salad, and tuna salad.

Egg salad is often used as a sandwich filling, typically made of chopped hard-boiled eggs, mayonnaise, mustard, minced celery and onion, salt, black pepper, and paprika. It is also often used as a topping on green salad.

Egg salad can be made creatively with any number of other cold foods added. Bacon, bell pepper, capers, cheese, cucumber, onions, lettuce, pickle relish, and pickles are common additional ingredients.

A closely related sandwich filler is egg mayonnaise, wherein chopped hard-boiled egg is mixed with mayonnaise only.

Today’s Menu: Pulled Buffalo Sliders w/ Baked Fries

 

 
It was Kitchen Drawer cleaning day today, a long over due one at that. Cleaned the Utensil, Spice, Dish Towels, and Junk drawers out today. Didn’t realize how cutting knives we had buried in the drawer. Only had to throw out a couple of Spice Bottles, expired. Then the Junk Drawer, which was full of odds and useless ends. For dinner tonight it’s Slider Night and Baked Fries!

 

Pulled Buffalo Sliders Fries 006
I made a few different types of Sliders for everyone for dinner. My Mom had made some Egg Salad the other day and I made a couple of Sliders out of what remained. Then another type was a Ham and Swiss one. I used Kroger Private Selection Rosemary Ham and Sargento Ultra Thin Swiss Cheese. And the last two were, my favorites, made with Wild Idea Buffalo Pulled Buffalo. I made two different types, one I added JB’s Fat Boy Chipotle BBQ Sauce to the Pulled Buffalo and the other was I just seasoned the Pulled Buffalo with a little Sea Salt and added a fresh slice of Mozzarella Cheese.

The Wild Idea Pulled Buffalo comes rubbed with a blend of Mexican seasonings and then slowly braised till it’s fall apart tender.Wild Idea Buffalo done all the work so all you need to do is heat and eat it! It’s perfectly seasoned and so tender it melts in your mouth! The ones I added Mozzarella Cheese to, I used a fresh Murray’s Mozzarella Cheese Roll that I sliced into pieces. Found a real good buy on the Cheese at Kroger Deli and Cheese, $3.99 for a little over a pound of fresh Mozzarella Cheese. I used Pepperidge Farm Slider Whole Wheat Buns. I also baked some Ore Ida Simply Cracked Black Pepper and Sea Salt Country Style Fries. For dessert later a Del Monte No Sugar Added Peach Chunk Cup.

What to do with – Leftover Deviled Eggs

November 12, 2013 at 8:49 AM | Posted in Eggs, leftovers | 6 Comments
Tags: , , , , , , ,

I love Deviled Eggs! And I hate to see the extra ones go to waste so here’s one way to put them to good use. You can serve it as another appetizer by spooning them on to crackers. Chop and dice the white egg part and top with a caper, a black olive slice or a sprig of dill. Then below are a few more great ideas from http://www.ehow.com/

 

 

 
Egg Sandwich
The easiest way to use leftover deviled egg filling is to make a tray of sandwiches. The recipe for deviled egg filling is nearly identical to the recipe for egg salad. You may want to add more mayonnaise to make the filling smoother. You may also want to add other seasonings and chopped vegetables, such as cayenne pepper or chopped celery. Toast enough bread slices to make the number of sandwiches you want. Top a toasted slice with lettuce, a piece of fresh tomato, some deviled egg filling and the other slice of toast. If desired, you can make finger sandwiches using bread with the crust cut off and sliced into small rectangles.

Deviled Egg Dip
You can make a dip out of unused deviled egg filling. Place the filling into a large bowl and add anywhere from 1/2 cup to 1 cup of mayonnaise or sour cream, depending on the amount of filling you have. If you have less than 1 cup of filling, use more mayonnaise; if you have more than 1 cup of filling, use less mayonnaise. Stir this mixture thoroughly with a whisk or spoon. Add a package of ranch or French onion dip mix, if desired. For another idea, mix the deviled egg filling with prepared guacamole. Serve either recipe with chips, crackers or small vegetables.

Deviled Eggs Benedict
You can give the classic breakfast dish, eggs Benedict, a unique twist with this recipe. The normal recipe consists of a poached egg atop a slice of Canadian bacon on an English muffin covered in Hollandaise sauce (a rich, egg-based sauce). Substitute a scoop of deviled egg filling for the poached egg and you have a whole new dish: deviled eggs Benedict. Instead of attempting to make homemade Hollandaise sauce (which can be difficult), you can purchase Hollandaise sauce mix from grocery stores.

Deviled Egg Samosas
Samosas are an Indian appetizer traditionally consisting of pastry stuffed with a potato filling. They are easy to make, especially if you use ready-made ingredients. Purchase a package of frozen O’Brien or hash brown potatoes, a package of frozen peas and a package of refrigerated pie crust or won ton wrappers. Cook some of the frozen potatoes with the frozen peas and season with curry powder, ginger and cilantro. Stir your leftover deviled egg filling into the potato mixture. Fill pie crust rounds, circles or wontons with the potato-egg filling and fry them in batches. These are perfect for a large gathering, such as a movie night or a Super Bowl party.
