Turkey/ham spread

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
2 cups Finely chopped cooked turkey (I threw it in the Cuisinart)
1 cup Finely chopped cooked ham
½ cup Finely chopped green onion
½ cup Finely chopped carrot
1 pack (8-oz) cream cheese, softened
1 Container (8-oz) sour cream
1 cup Mayonnaise
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

This was inspired by two recipes that were posted to the list in January: Creamed Turkey Topping for Crackers posted by Janine Vandenberg and Dried Beef Cheese Ball posted by Helen of Burlingame CA I had printed both and was on my way to the supermarket, still unsure of what I wanted to make. The recipes somehow conflated in y mind while I was commuting, and out came the following: (I made some last night and my housemates love it!)

Combine all ingredients. Ta Da! Serve with crackers or crostini.

I used reduced fat varieties of the sour cream, cream cheese and mayo. For the turkey and ham, I bought "pieces and ends" from the deli department at the supermarket. They're the end piece from the ham and turkey they slice up, and are packaged and sold when they get too small to put in the slicer without losing a finger. At my supermarket they sell for about $1 a pound.

Much more economical than canned meats and usually less sodium, too.
