What if I de-constructed the recipe? Oh.My.Goodness! I don't know why I didn't think about doing this years ago, because this is such a timesaver in making, but still delivers the fabulous ham and crunchy dill taste that everyone loves!
My little ones (and my big ones) went diving for pretzels, butter crackers, pita chips, and even spoons - just to scoop up and enjoy! This is also pretty darn perfect smeared on fresh plain bagels or onion bagels!
Start with some creamy chive & onion cream cheese, chopped deli ham (or leftover baked honey ham if you have that), add the chopped dill pickles, some fresh spices, and the slightest drizzle of dill pickle juice, and BAM!
You just gotta love success! Hope that you'll love this recipe as well!
