My kids loved ham and cheese sandwiches, so I created these quick breakfast pockets for mornings when they were too rushed to sit down for breakfast. I still make them after all these years! —Marjorie Carey, Alamosa, Colorado
"My family loves the flavor that orange marmalade, beer and brown sugar give this ham," says Clo Runco. The Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania reader scores the ham and inserts whole cloves for an appealing look with little effort.
"This is a variation of a recipe I used in home ec class when I was in middle school," recalls Paula Magnus of Republic, Washington. "I made it a lot for our family of seven when I was growing up. Now I fix it frequently for my family of five. I usually use canned green beans and there's seldom any left over."
Tender slices of this fruit-glazed ham are on our family's Christmas menu every year. Topping the meat with pineapple slices, cherries and cloves makes it look festive--and adds to the flavor of this easy holiday entree.
This is one of husband's favorite light recipes. I often double the sauce to make sure I have some left over. It can easily be reheated to put over a microwaved potato for a quick lunch.

From Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, Sarah Marshall writes, "My husband often skipped breakfast until I created these savory biscuits that have become his favorite. I keep a batch in the freezer, and he reheats a few in the microwave on busy mornings.
This is a great main course for dinner guests...and they never believe how easy it is. The creamy feta-basil filling can be made early and refrigerated until needed. Deli ham and packaged spinach leaves further cut prep time.
