Ham and Swiss Cheese Spread

1 (3 ounce) package cream cheese, at room temperature
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 Tbsp Dijon mustard
1 Tbsp prepared horseradish
1/2 pound smoked ham, finely chopped in a food processor

2 cups (8 ounces) shredded sharp Swiss cheese
1 Tbsp shredded onion (use the large holes on a box grater)

1. With a rubber spatula, mash the cream cheese, mayonnaise, mustard, and horseradish in a medium bowl until smooth. Mix in the ham, Swiss cheese, and onion. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until chilled, at least 2 hours, or overnight.
2. Transfer to a serving bowl and serve chilled with crisp rye crackers, toasted rye or pumpernickel bread, or flatbread crisps. The spread may be prepared up to 2 days ahead. Try leftover spread on toast and broiled until bubbling.

Yield: 2-1/2 cups
