When a college classmate and I threw a party for our professor, a friend contributed these savory appetizers. Everyone in the class requested the recipe before the party was done. Try the cups with chicken instead of ham if you'd like. -Brandi Ladner Gulfport, Mississippi

"This a great, simple recipe to make either for an appetizer or just as a snack. Its doesn't have to many ingredients and it tastes delicious!"

"I like the simplicity of this recipe, however, does anyone know how to make it without mayo? I wasnt a complete fan of the taste, so I shaved 1/4 cup off and added spicy brown and more dijon instead. I used regular muffin tins and this made 26 muffins. Yes they are easy to burn, I baked for 10 mins."

"I used the mini muffin tins or the loaf pan - and then added all the ingredients to the pans and I changed the oven cook time 9 to 12 minutes - makes the tops crispy when left in for that extra minute - word of warning... (NOT TURN ON THE BROILER KNOB TO BROWN THESE MUFFINS - CATCH ON FIRE EASY)... yummy!"
