My 1960s childhood memory: deviled ham cocktail sandwich paste

In the 1960s, when my parents would throw a cocktail party, I would lie in wait under the table for my favorite special-occasion yummy: a canape made with a pink deviled-ham paste. When the platter heaped with the little sandwiches arrived at the table, I would emerge from beneath, secure two handfuls, and go under again, to savor my loot. These days, when I’m feeling especially sorry for myself, I make a batch of this paste and eat the little sandwiches until I’m feeling human again.

Instructions

  1. 1Mix everything well in a Pyrex glass bowl (Pyrex for period specificity). Take two slices Pepperidge Farm thinly sliced white bread, apply the spread to one slice, put the other slice on top, trim off the crusts, then cut the sandwich diagonally into four small triangles. Eat. Repeat.
