Now just note, this food does NOT look cute… it’s chopped up ham. I’m not sure why some people find this more disgusting than chopped up chicken in chicken salad, but some people do. Pureed meat is just disgusting looking either way. It does taste GREAT though, if you like ham.
You’ll need a food processor to make it. The food processor is one of my favorite kitchen appliances. It might be the fact that I’m notoriously dangerous with anything with a sharp blade, but with the food processor the blade goes inside while active where it can’t get my fingers. Safe. Haha. I just have to be careful cleaning it and getting it setup.
I made all of Baby G’s purees with this and I made them quickly. It does a great job of chopping up meat into puree.
This is similar to the one that I have:
- Center cut sliced ham with bone in (remove the bone): 1.42 lbs
- Miracle Whip: 2 tbsp
- Dill Relish: 2-3 tbsp (to taste)
I just let the food processor do its job here, usually it goes pretty quick. I turn it “on” and just keep an eye on it until the ham is all pretty much pureed.
|Here’s what it looks like pureed…|
Sometimes I’ll cut up some green olives to add to the ham salad as well.
I put it on a bun, put a slice of cheese on top, and enjoy. You can also put it on a lightly toasted bagel or a sub roll.
