We farm 2,000 acres and raise a few thousand chicken, so I'm often too busy to cook much in the summer. These appetizers are quick and easy, though, and perfect for hot days when you want to eat light. During the winter, when we have more time to entertain, they're also a great hit with guests.

"Made these for a party (all women) and there were none left!!! They were easy to make and so good. Will go in my "make again...soon" file."

"I think these are a good use of leftovers, but I wouldn't prep them from scratch. We enjoyed them using leftover cooked chicken instead of ham, leftover chili Cheese Corn (also from Taste of Home) instead of the mayo and onion, and cheddar cheese instead of the swiss. I forgot about chilling it (oops!) and it turned out fine, just a little sticky and messy. Mine tasted good and were quite simple when everything was already prepped. These are worth trying with what you have at home!"
