This is a weird Southern Indiana dip that I have learned is best when PRETZEL STICKS are dipped into it! I know it sounds odd, but it truly is addictive! It's kid-friendly too--my 6 year old son will sit with me for HOURS on the couch, just dipping pretzels into this stuff and eating! It also has a strange hold on grown men in Indiana who drink lots of beer while watching sports. They literally whine like girls if they don't have it when the Super Bowl begins...LOL! It's surprisingly delicious and addictive. :)

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 (4 1/4 ounce) cans deviled ham (Underwood)
  • 1 (5 ounce) jar Kraft Old English cheese spread (Olive & Pimiento)
  • 12 cup Hellmann's mayonnaise (not Miracle Whip)
  • 1 tablespoon Frank's red hot sauce (more or less to taste)
  • 1 dash Worcestershire sauce


  1. Mix all ingredients thoroughly and chill for at least 1 hour. Stir well before serving.
  2. Best eaten with pretzel sticks, but also delicious spread on Club Crackers! Yum!

This is an acquired taste. I kept telling my kid, "Just give it another try and see if it grows on you."
He didn't buy it. I have never had deviled ham before. I am going to munch out on this for the weekend but I am not going to make it again.

I've made this dip for multiple occasions, including work parties and the Super Bowl, and it vanishes every time! So yummy, and pretzels are definitely a necessity! Add a nice cold beer and you'll be marveling about how great life is!!

I have to confess that I wasn't sure about this one, but figured it was worth a try. Boy, am I glad I did! It was really good! I found myself going back to it again...and again...and again! I made it as an appetizer for Thanksgiving 2008, using the recommended pretzel sticks, and finally had to just walk away from it! I made it up and let it sit overnight in the fridge. I used the recommended 1 tablespoon of Frank's, as I'd never used it before. It was pleasantly spicy without being overwhelmingly so. When (not if) I make it again, I'll probably add another teaspoon or two...just for that extra kick. Very nice dip...and the pretzel sticks are a perfect accompaniment! Made for Stacy's Cook-a-thon, 2008. Miss you, hon'. (((hugs)))
