THIS RECIPE is my family's traditional Easter entree.
The individual cups are pretty on the plate, especially when topped with the bright cherry sauce. Since we raise pigs, we have a good pork supply.

"I came across the recipe for this glaze in a grilling manual but wasn't satisfied with it. I kept the combination of orange marmalade and lime juice and adapted the seasonings to my liking," explains Helen Faddis of Gloucester, Massachusetts. "It's also great on spareribs and chicken."
Bring out the kid in everyone by preparing pigs-in-a-blanket with sausage links and refrigerated breadsticks. This old-fashioned finger food is a fun addition to a breakfast buffet. Or make a heaping plateful for a snack.
For a stick-to-your-ribs main dish that's deliciously different, give this pie a try! The Italian sausage goes so well with mashed potatoes, and both get a new twist served in a crust and cut into wedges. My family is always glad to see me preparing this dish.

"Your family will think you took hours to prepare dinner when you slice servings of this delicious ham," assures Karin Young of Carlsbad, California. The glaze combines honey, brown sugar and mustard for tasty results.
"Even my husband, who doesn't care for pork, enjoys these tender chops covered with an easy sauce," relates Debbie Smith of Broken Arrow, Oklahoma. The price of this thrifty main dish is easy on the wallet at a mere 98 cents a serving.
From Hendersonville, North Carolina, Karyn Joyner shares this enticing pork roast and chunky tomato sauce. After reducing the tangy sauce on her stovetop, she uses a portion of it to flavor the pork, serving the extra on the side at dinner.
"This is an extremely quick and very tasty pizza that my family loves," says Jennifer Zukiwsky of Glendon, Alberta. "It's a bit different because you use buttermilk biscuits instead of pizza dough. It makes enough for a large family and is great for company."
This hearty pizza pie is sure to become a staple in your house. Frozen bread dough is pressed into a springform pan to make an easy crust, then spread with the sauce and topped with sausage, green pepper and cheese.
