Deviled Ham Dip

I am about to head out to BlogHer after working part of the day. It feels like I haven’t stopped working in a week due to getting things ready, visitors, and my usual crazed life. But I am feeling a bit devilish so how abut a Deviled Ham Dip to celebrate the beginning of BlogHer 09?

1 cup sour cream
1 can deviled ham (Yes, I really do love this stuff. Yes, the deviled ham in a can.)
1 teaspoon prepared mustard
1/4 teaspoon celery salt (leave that out if Denise’s mother is coming…she doesn’t do celery salt)
1 tablespoon minced onion
1/4 teaspoon sugar

Combine all ingredients and blend thoroly. [sic] Chill. Serve with assorted crackers, chips, vegetables such as radishes, carrots, cauliflower, celery or green onions for dipping. (Has anyone ever used a green onion to snag some dip at a party?)

    I never liked Deviled Ham when I was a kid but I find I now crave this little wonder my mother would make with it. She would buy brown and serve rolls that were not full baked. She would pull out some of the roll from the top creating a nice hole to stuff deviled ham dip in and then she would cover with American Cheese or shredded cheddar and then finish in the broiler. They were fantastic.

    I have not used a green onion to abscond with dip but my mother also used to make an appetizer with cream cheese, green onion and thin slices of deli Ham like Buddig brand in the little packets at the grocery store. She would spread cream cheese on the ham slice and then roll it around a green onion and chill them. They were also fantastic.
