Recipe by Mia 3

This is a wonderful creamy cheesy pate, with a bit of a crunch in it. Got the recipe from an old friend and then I just added to it whatever I liked. It's a real winner--all of my family and friends just love it. They can't seem to get enough. I truly hope you all will enjoy this recipe as much as we all do! Dig in and enjoy!

Well, it certaintly has a lot going on! I did like the addition of the onion soup mix. Gave it a little extra crunch. Will make a great pretty addition to my Christmas plates. Thnx for posting, Mia. Made for Fall 2008 PAC.

  1. You mix all the ingredients together, for the exception of the sliced ham and the hot sauce. Mix very well till it forms a ball. You then place it on a serving dish and let set aside.
  2. Meanwhile grind up the ham in a food processor. Pat this around the cheese ball till it's fully covered.
  3. You then pour the hot sauce into a bowl and squeeze a dash of lemon juice. Mix a little and then spread over ham,making sure its coated well.
  4. Serve with you favourite crackers and enjoy!
