"I COPIED this recipe exactly the way Grandma has written it in her worn cookbook. The only difference today is that I can't get home-smoked ham like those Grandpa used to cure in his old-fashioned smokehouse. But that never matters to hungry folks at the table—Grandma's recipe is a winner every time!"
This recipe is wonderful for a special brunch with family or friends. With lots of cheese and chunks of ham, the filling is delicious and satisfying. I serve the puffs with fresh fruit and a sweet bread.
Celebrate a holiday with this big and savory ham. The spiraled pieces taste so good drenched in a sweet and tangy glaze. If you like extra glaze, simply double the recipe and drizzle away or serve some on the side.
This recipe has evolved over the past 8 years. After I added the thyme, ham and sour cream, my husband declared, “This is it!” I like to serve this rich, saucy entree with a salad and homemade French bread. —Hope Toole, Muscle Shoals, Alabama
“A dear friend shared the recipe for Ham with Pineapple Salsa when she moved from Hawaii to Colorado. Now it’s one of my favorite ways to eat ham,” says Dawn Wilson of Buena Vista, Colorado. “I get lots of requests for the recipe when I make it for guests.”
