  • 2 cups diced ham
  • 12 oz cream cheese
  • 1 1/3 cups sharp white cheddar shredded
  • 1 1/3 cups cheddar shredded
  • 1 1/3 cups Monterrey Jack shredded
  • 1 medium onion thinly sliced and chopped
  • 3 TB butter
  • 3 green onions finely chopped
  • 4 TB milk
  • 2 TB Frank's hot sauce
  • 1/2 tsp paprika


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a large cast iron skillet, cook the diced ham in 1 tablespoon of butter until browned. Set aside.
  • In the same skillet, slowly cook the onions in the remaining butter until soft and caramelized.
  • Over low heat, stir in the cream cheese until melted. Add the remaining ingredients, including the browned ham and green onions, and stir well to combine.
  • Place skillet into the oven and bake for 15 to 20 minutes until heated and bubbly. Call the hogs, and serve warm with your favorite crackers or bread.


If you are not using a cast iron skillet, use an oven safe skillet. Or, transfer the dip to an 8x8 baking dish before baking.
