I bet you weren't serving the kids cabbage with the hot dogs. Somehow that combo just never took off, go figure. I think we can take it on faith that putting cream cheese on ham just isn't kosher. Is the point of that exercise just to prove that you did something besides heat the ham? Just to get some hostess cred?
no cabbage or saurkraut either. cabbage got made into coleslaw, which still works with hotdogs. (on the side, not on the dog)

i think you're right, frosted ham is just for hostess cred. screw that, get the spiral sliced ham, then you have not only ham for one meal but a HAMBONE for your black eyed peas!!
