Cream Cheese and Potatoes Wrapped in Cured Ham Christmas Wreath

Cream Cheese and Potatoes Wrapped in Cured Ham Christmas Wreath

A delicious wreath that's perfect for Christmas or to serve to guests. This recipe was on a TV show!

Ingredients: about 10 balls

Cream cheese
40 g
Cured ham
12 slices
Potatoes
3
Krazy Salt (or salt and pepper)
to taste
Broccoli
about 4 stalks
Carrot
to taste
Cherry tomatoes
5

Steps

1. Peel the potatoes and cut into 8 pieces each. Put the cut potatoes in a small pan, cover with water, and boil.
2. Cut the cream cheese up into small pieces. When the potatoes are cooked, drain and return immediately to the pan. Add cream cheese and a generous amount of Krazy Salt (or salt and pepper), and mash with a wooden spatula.
3. Place a slice of ham on a piece of plastic wrap, and spoon some of the cooled mashed potato on top. Squeeze together to form a ball. I think you can make 10 balls.
4. Boil the broccoli in water and season with salt and pepper (about 4 to 5 shakes) until it's bright green. Slice the carrot thinly with a peeler to form ribbons. Wash the cherry tomatoes.
5. Arrange the ham wrapped balls on a plate, and decorate with broccoli and cherry tomatoes. Arrange the carrot like a ribbon. Cut 2 slices of ham in half lengthwise, and roll each piece into a rose. Put the roses on the ribbon, and it's done.
6. You could squeeze mayonnaise like this too.

Story Behind this Recipe

This is what i made for Christmas last year. I used to make it with ordinary mashed potatoes, but this time I added cream cheese for richness.
