"Simple, but flavorful, spread that is great with crackers or celery. Any dipping mustard made with turmeric as the spice factor will work. This addition put the recipe over the top." — Luvinlif2k

1 (8 ounce) package
cream cheese, softened
2 1/2 ounces
sliced ham, chopped
green onions, chopped
prepared English mustard with turmeric
I used whipped cream cheese, turkey ham and dijon mustard. I did add a good amount garlic powder and some fresh ground pepper. The kids and I had this spread on toasted bagels the next morning with a sliced tomato on top--very good.
Wanted something with a little pizzaz for my bagels this morning instead of the usual plain cream cheese so decided to give this a try. I was not disappointed :-) One thing about turmeric is that the amount used in prepared mustards barely affects the mustard flavor but rather is used for its yellow color; it's the color of the seed used that affects the flavor so just use your favorite prepared mustard. My favorite is Grey Poupon Dijon so that is what I used. If you want more 'heat' then my all means use English mustard called for in this recipe or mix Colman's powder with equal amounts of water but add it to taste because Colman's is 'very' hot ;-)
