Corned Beef Spread
Makes about 1-1/2 cups
This recipe for corned beef spread is super easy and very good on crackers or crostini. Additionally, it is excellent as a filling for party or tea sandwiches, as in the recipe in the similar and related recipes links. This was my mother's original recipe. Back in the day, she did not own a processor and she never had a desire to use one when they became available. Although this spread is very easy to mix by hand, you can do it in a processor.
- 1 can corned beef
- Prepared yellow mustard
- Prepared horseradish
Combine all ingredients, starting with a little mustard and horseradish and adding more as desired. Mash until very fine. Cover and refrigerate until needed.
Notes: If using a processor, be careful not to make the mixture too pasty. If using as a sandwich filling, the spread will yield five or six whole sandwiches, each of which will be cut into four party-sized triangles.
