HOT HAM & CHEESE DIP
8 thick slices smoked ham, finely chopped
1 (8 oz.) block of cream cheese, softened
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup shredded swiss cheese
1 pinch cayenne pepper
2 Tbsp freshly chopped parsley
1 bag mini toasts, crackers, or freshly sliced bread
Combine the ham, cream cheese, 3/4 cup each of the swiss and cheddar cheeses, and the pinch of cayenne pepper in a glass bowl.
Stick the bowl in the microwave for about 45 seconds to soften the cheeses.
Mix it all together until smooth. Transfer to a baking dish. Sprinkle with remaining cheese over the top.
Bake for 10 minutes at 350 degrees. Switch the oven to broil and cook 2 to 5 more minutes, or until the cheese is browned and bubbly.
Garnish with parsley and serve with toasts, crackers or bread.
