This flavorful recipe from Mary Stretchbery produces two moist ham loaves that are topped with a sweet homemade sauce. "I sometimes serve one loaf and freeze individual slices of the other," she pens from Weston, Ohio. "The slices are great for fast sandwiches at lunchtime."

"When making traditional lasagna, my mother would always have leftover noodles, so she experimented and came up with this tasty way to use them up," writes Renee Buck from Greenville, South Carolina. "You can substitute chicken for the ground turkey and use spinach instead of broccoli in the filling for these roll-ups," she suggests.
To create these impressive appetizers, Renee Aupperle of Litiz, Pennsylvania rolls up turkey breast halves with ham and cheese, bakes and slices them, then serves them with a creamy basil sauce. "They're great for a buffet because you can prepare them ahead and bake them right before serving," she notes.
