1 cup fully-cooked boneless ham, very finely chopped
10 eggs, hard-cooked, peeled*
1 Hass avocado, pitted, peeled, and cut up
2 tablespoons mayonnaise, light
1 tablespoon lemon juice, freshly squeezed

Add avocado, mayonnaise, and lemon juice. Cover and process or blend until smooth, stopping to scrap down side of container if necessary. Stir in ham and salt.
Spoon avocado mixture into the egg-white halves. If desired, cover and chill in refrigerator for up to 3 hours.
*To hard-cook eggs, place eggs in large saucepan. Cover with cold water to 1 inch above the eggs. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low or just below a simmer. Cook, covered, for 15 minutes. Run cold water over eggs or place in ice water until cool enough to handle. Gently tap eggs to crack the shells. Peel eggs under cold running water. Chill in the refrigerator before using.

About the Cut: Ham

Cured ham is leg meat that has been dry- or wet-cured. Hams are labeled according to the amount of water added to the ham during the curing process. Because the leg muscle is a well-exercised part of the hog, ham is surprisingly low in fat.

Butcher's Tips

All varieties of cured ham are either boneless or bone-in. Bone-in hams are traditionally considered more attractive and boneless are considered easier to serve because of simplified carving. Bone-in hams are available in a variety of shapes - whole or as a shank or butt half. Boneless hams also are available in a variety of sizes.
