Prepared by: Tammy Roberts,

February 2, 2014

 

Yield: 4 cups dip

 

Ingredients

  • 1 cups ground 93% lean ham (about pound)
  • 1 10-ounce package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
  • 1 cup dry curd cottage cheese
  • 1 tablespoon margarine
  • 1 cup plain low-fat yogurt
  • cup light mayonnaise
  • 2 green onions, chopped (include tops)
  • 1 teaspoon “light” seasoning or other reduced sodium seasoning blend
  • 1 loaf round rye bread or French bread

 

Preparation

  • Combine margarine and dry curd cottage cheese in blender. Blend at a low speed until creamy. Be patient, it will take a few minutes, but don’t try to hasten it by adding liquid.
  • In mixing bowl, combine ground ham, spinach, blended cottage cheese and margarine, yogurt, light mayonnaise, green onions and seasonings. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
  • With a sharp knife, cut top 1/3 off round rye loaf or French bread. Hollow out loaf, leaving a 1-inch thick shell. Cut bread into 1-inch cubes. Store bread cubes and shell in plastic bags until ready to serve.
  • Just before serving, toast bread shell in 400 degree oven for 8 minutes (this prevents the dip from soaking into bread shell).
  • Place the ham and spinach mixture in the bread shell.
  • Serve with reserved bread cubes and vegetables.
