Deviled Ham Sandwiches

Have you ever heard of a show called White Collar? It's basically a story about a con man that helps a FBI agent catch criminals so he can stay out of prison. The FBI agent, Peter, loves to eat Deviled Ham Sandwiches on stakeouts. Yes... everything comes back to food for me.  I have never bought the canned deviled ham so I decided why not make own.  This deviled ham basically raids your condiment shelf in the fridge. I had to figure out how to make it "devilish" so I called upon my favorite spicy condiment... Sriracha!  I must say it provided the perfect amount of heat. My daughter and husband really loved the sandwiches.  Now I must admit for the sake of the picture I used a fancy little onion roll, but I recommend regular sandwich bread for this spread instead. It's a delicate spread and you want a soft bread to compliment it.  I think these sandwiches would make great tea sandwiches.  So thanks to White Collar and the character of Peter for introducing me to this great little sandwich idea.  I may not go on any real stakeouts to eat this sandwich, but I will sure watch stakeouts on TV and eat them.

1/2 pound of deli ham
2-3Tbs of chopped onion
1-2 Tbs of chopped celery
1 green chili seeded
2 Tbs of mild red bell pepper
1 Tbs of pickle relish
2 Tbs of mayonnaise
1 Tbs of Dijon Mustard
1 Tbs of Yellow Mustard
1 Tbs of Sriracha
1/4 tsp of garlic powder
1 Tbs of Worcestershire Sauce 
Salt and Black Pepper to taste

Throw all ingredients into a food processor and blend until smooth and spreadable.  Spread on sandwich bread. Enjoy.

Note: You can also spread this as a filling for a grill cheese sandwich.

  1. You crack me up. I should be surprised that you were able to find food to cook in a television show, but I'm not. I've never made or eaten deviled ham. I guess that's something I'm going to have to remedy before I see the show (which I never have).

  2. I love deviled ham, but seldom eat it because the canned stuff is usually high in salt, fat and god knows what. I'm so glad you posted this recipe! I had already given deviled ham up for good, but this seems like a healthy (and tasty) way to eat it. I'll try it and let you know how it went. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Innnnteresting - never had deviled ham, and I'm not that big a ham fan to begin with, but I love all those seeds and the olive stick, so I'd very much be interested to try this.

  4. I have never heard of that show Ramona but I'm telling you my husband is a ham eater and he would go for this, he loves all things ham and I don't even eat that. Your photos are great and it really looks good on that bun. Happy Wednesday.

  5. These sandwiches look awesome - though I am very curious as to what devilled ham is! Thanks for introducing a new concept :D

  6. These look yummy!!!! I think when I was little my mother used to buy a canned version of this. Sounds totally gross I know but somehow I remember that. Love that you have made it from scratch I didn't realize it was real food lol.

  7. I heared that Show ,,, very interesting you created this dish from that show LOL,,,I don't eat ham,but looks good though :)

  8. fabulous recipe with lovely presentation ..:)
    Tasty Appetite

  9. You was inspired by the show... love it. :-)

  10. I have not seen that show!

    This is very interesting, I have never seen deviled ham! I'm really curious about this recipe! I do enjoy ham.

  11. It is really a good thing we are not neighbors! We would be exchanging recipes and Crime/FBI/Law shows. I have not yet viewed that show, but I am in love will all things CSI or Law and Order type. So I am sure I will love it.

  12. This is nothing like the deviled ham that I grew up with. Mom served it out of a can and spread it on crackers or white bread. I swore I would never eat it again! :) Oh well - never say never. This deviled ham looks perfect and those buns - they certainly aren't white bread. It's interesting what inspires us sometimes. Now I'll have to watch White Collar. :)

  13. Love ham mousse! This spicy version must be to die for!

  14. In the seventies, John noticed that people were just looking for quicker ways to cook bread and therefore he went ahead and imported a few sandwich makers from Belgium, where he first noticed them. sandwich maker
