I received this recipe from a friend who's a wonderful cook. This goes great with any main course, but it's especially good with ham. —Bertha Jensen, Mooresville, Indiana

"WOW, boy this was EZ to put together, taste was yummy too. I'll take this to my next "bring-a-dish" meeting."

"I didn't have processed cheese, so I used what I had on hand - 8oz. shredded mozzarella and 8 oz shredded parmesan. Family doesn't care for olives, so I omitted them. It was a hit!"

"a variation of this recipe has been in my family for years. Mine calls for Miracle Whip instead of mayonnaise, and strips of bacon are laid across the top with olives in between the strips. I have always left out the olives because we don't care for them. This is a GREAT go-to recipe that really dresses up a meal."

"Just made these. We loved them and I have picky eaters. The only thing I did different was no olives and I sprinkled ranch dressing mix over the top."

"Wonderful flavor! I used green onions, because that is what I had on hand! Great dish for a carry-in!"
