Breakfast from the Pantry - Cream Chipped Ham

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. 



  1. 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.
  1. 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.
  1. Serve Philly Style Cream Chipped Ham over toast, bagels, biscuits or croissants. Garnish with chopped chives or basil. Enjoy!!
