A full-time job, farm life and our kids' activities keep me on my toes, so I don't have time to prepare fancy dishes. These puffs are a real down-home delight and appeal to everyone.

"I'm not sure about the rest of you but 30 mins. to bake is always to long. I make these a lot. When the kids were in hockey, this was there snack driving to the rink. Now I bake for a company and the 80 employees love them!!! I use the canned flakes of ham."

"These are absolutely wonderful! I made them for a potluck & they disappeared within the first 1/2 hour. I didn't have any ground mustard on hand so I substituted a tsp. of yellow mustard. Simple to make & delicious to eat. My new potluck standby."
