While this tasty little potted ham can be eaten right away, it's also an excellent make-ahead party dish that can sit out for a few hours and still taste great.

  1. 2 oil-packed anchovy fillets
  2. 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  3. 1/2 pound smoked ham, shredded
  4. 1 cup finely chopped green cabbage
  5. 1 small dill pickle, chopped (1/3 cup)
  6. 2 tablespoons chopped dill, plus more for garnish
  7. Salt
  8. Freshly ground pepper
  9. Toasted country bread and mustard, for serving
  1. In a small saucepan, melt the anchovies in the olive oil over moderate heat, stirring. Scrape the anchovy oil into a medium bowl. Add the ham, cabbage, pickle and chopped dill, season with salt and pepper and mix well. Pack the ham mixture into a 3-cup ramekin and garnish with dill. Serve at room temperature with the bread and mustard.
Make Ahead The potted ham can be refrigerated for up to 2 days.
