Whether you're looking for a savory appetizer or unique accompaniment to soup, this speedy specialty is sure to please. Helen Lamison of Carnegie, Pennsylvania tops packaged bread dough with ham and onions, then bakes it until golden.

"We like this homemade rye so much that I seldom buy bread anymore," writes May Ann Bonk of New Berlin, Wisconsin. "For the past 10 years, I've made this bread for our church bake sales and it always goes quickly."
