  • 6 cups ham coarsely ground
  • 4 eggs hard boiled and chopped
  • 1 cup celery finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup onion finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup sweet pickle relish
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 4 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried basil


  • Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix well. This makes about a 1/2 gallon tupperware container full. I like having it on hand. Recipe can be cut in half.


You can finely chop the ham if you don't have a food processor or a way to grind it up.
