  • 1/2 onion finely diced
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1-1/2 cups diced ham
  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • 1 cup shredded Swiss cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded Provolone cheese

  • Melt the butter in a medium skillet over medium heat. Stir in the onions and continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until onions are soft and golden.
  • Add the cream cheese to the skillet and stir until very soft and beginning to melt.
  • Add the remaining ingredients and, with the heat still on low, continue stirring until everything is well combined.
  • Pour into an 8x8 baking dish (or leave in your skillet if it's oven proof) and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 20 minutes or until the cheese has fully melted.
  • Serve with crackers, chips, or small slices of bread.
