How to prepare the cooked ham mousse recipe

  1. First, cut the slice of cooked ham into cubes . Our advice is to have it sliced ​​directly from the butcher and avoid the ready-made cubes.
  2. Transfer cubes and cream in a blender and blend until frothy.
  3. Add the oil, a pinch of salt and a pinch of pepper and stir in the spreadable cheese, stirring gently with a kitchen spatula until blended.
  4. Your ham mousse is ready to be enjoyed.

Similarly, you can make the mortadella mousse which, with the versions based on tuna and salmon, is perfect for creating a truly amazing dish of croutons . You can also prepare the raw ham mousse by simply substituting it for the cooked ham. The quantities of the ingredients remain unchanged.


The ham mousse can be kept in the refrigerator for a maximum of one day, well covered with plastic wrap.
