Creamy Herbed Pancetta Spread
Pancetta, a cured but unsmoked bacon, gives this savory spread a distinct tangy note. Prosciutto or other tangy dry-cured ham can be substituted if pancetta is not available.
2 ounces pancetta, finely chopped
2 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup mayonnaise
2 teaspoons Dijon-style mustard
2 tablespoons finely chopped chives
1 clove garlic, minced
- Beat all ingredients together in large bowl until well blended.
- Spoon into a small serving bowl, or into a foil-lined 2-cup mold. Cover; refrigerate overnight.
- Turn out onto a small serving plate, remove foil; serve with crackers.
Makes about 2 cups. (16 servings)
*Substitute 2 ounces prosciutto, finely chopped, for pancetta, if desired.
