My family has enjoyed this hearty ham salad spread for years. It came to be an unexpected leftover every time we had ham for a special dinner. Recently, I decided to measure the ingredients, write down the recipe and pass it on to my daughter and daughter-in-law. They encouraged me to share it with Reminisce readers.

Did you know that cheesecake could be savory instead of sweet? Tomato and green onions mixed with cream cheese is like an irresistible form of gazpacho. Served on lettuce, the BLT version is great on its own, but it's also a tasty appetizer when served with crackers. This is a flexible recipe, so use other cheese in place of the Gruyere, and add olives, crab meat, cooked mushrooms - whatever strikes your fancy. —Joni Hilton, Rocklin, California
Guests will think you fussed over these warm golden bites from Mary Dixson of Decatur, Alabama. "I sometimes turn the recipe into a main course by using egg roll wrappers and serving the rolls with chicken gravy," she explains.
In her Prattville, Alabama kitchen, Amy Hornbuckle bakes these yummy spinach balls without an ounce of guilt. That's because this recipe cut 72% of the cholesterol and 44% of the calories from the original version.
The best things come in small packages, as these tasty sliders prove. With a filling this good, you’ll want to have a fork on hand for any yummy tidbits that get away. —Priscilla Yee, Concord, California
