Philly Style Cream Chipped Ham
It's a blast from the past with a smokey twist! A new creation, of an old classic dish (Cream Chipped Beef), replaced with thin slice Smoked Ham. Growing up in the “White House” Cream Chipped Beef was a family favorite and my Mom made this recipe using “Dried Beef”, cream, butter and flour. My Philly Style Cream Chipped Ham is great for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
- 3 tbsp Unsalted Butter
- 1 cup Chicken Broth Less Fat (low sodium)
- 1/2 Fat Free Milk
- 2 Garlic gloves minced
- 2 tbsp Cornstarch or flour
- 8 ounces Philadelphia Cream Cheese (Whipped)
- 1tbsp finely chopped fresh Basil
- 4 ounces thin slice Smoke Ham
- In a medium sauce pan, add butter, chicken broth, and milk. Let simmer for about 3 minutes, then add garlic. In a small bowl combine cornstarch and about 2 tablespoons of water to make a slurry paste, then add this to mixture. Blend and stir constantly. Now add cream cheese to mixture and whisk until the sauce is thick and smooth let simmer for about 2 - 3 minutes.
- Season sauce with pepper to taste, but (NO SALT), the Smoke Ham will provide the salt taste. Cut Smoked Ham into 1/2" slices and add to cream sauce, blend well and add fresh chopped basil.
- Serve Philly Style Cream Chipped Ham over toast, bagels, biscuits or croissants. Garnish with chopped chives or basil. Enjoy!!
