"These can be made ahead and frozen. To heat them up, place on an ungreased baking sheet in a 375° oven for 6 to 10 minutes or until heated through. They go great with the soup and salad.” —Trisha Kruse, Eagle, Idaho
Every year during the holidays, I use this delicious recipe that I got from my brother. These appealing appetizers get hearty flavor from the ham, bacon and cheese. They look lovely and really curb the hunger of guests waiting for a meal. —Virginia Slater, West Sunbury, Pennsylvania
This has become the brunch dish I'm known for here in Pearland. The recipe combines the favorite flavors of hearty, old-time country breakfasts with the ease of a modern, make-ahead dish. Try it—you'll enjoy it.
I make the most of a convenient prebaked pizza crust to create this recipe. Tasty toppings such as scrambled eggs, diced ham, crunchy water chestnuts, fresh tomatoes, ripe olives and shredded cheese provide plenty of pizzazz and a pretty presentation.—Carol Smith, Wichita, Kansas
For years, my mother made this savory-sweet bean dish. I was always thrilled when it was on the menu, and now I serve it often to my own family. You can vary the types of beans used, if you wish.
In Fairland, Oklahoma, Galelah Dowell glazes a bone-in ham with apricot jam to give it an attractive look and delicious flavor. It's the star of a special Sunday supper and yields lots of extra ham for made-in-minutes meals later in the week.
These pretty pinwheels have been a part of our annual Christmas Eve appetizer buffet for many years. I love them because they can be made a day in advance and taste great alone or served with crackers.
