Crunch Swiss and Ham Appetizers

We farm 2,000 acres and raise a few thousand chicken, so I'm often too busy to cook much in the summer. These Crunch Swiss and Ham Appetizers are quick and easy, though, and perfect for hot days when you want to eat light. During the winter, when we have more time to entertain, they're also a great hit with guests. —Wendy Mitchell, Weyburn, Saskatchewan
