Using packaged meatballs helps save time in the kitchen and they are just as tasty as homemade. My friends look forward to enjoying these meatballs at our holiday gatherings and there are never any leftovers!

I came up with this as an appetizer for my Christmas dinner, but now I serve it year round. I love French onion soup, and the caramelized onions, herbs and Swiss cheese make this taste like French onion soup in crisp, flaky crust. Don't worry about little tears as you work with the phyllo because after it's folded the tears and uneven edges disappear.—Elizabeth Brough, Eighty Four, Pennsylvania
When I prepare this recipe for Tandoori Chicken it brings back memories of my childhood and my rich Indian heritage. This has a nice spice level, but if you like your food on the mild side, then reduce each spice a little.
Wonderful flavors of garlic, rosemary and basil blend in this hearty spread! Lucky enough to have leftovers? Serve it with pita chips, veggies or as a sandwich topper. —DIANE NEMITZ, LUDINGTON, MICHIGAN
This focaccia has been in my mom's family for several generations. It is one of my most requested recipes whenever I am invited to a party—I am not allowed to attend unless I bring it! —Dora Travaglio, Mount Prospect, Illinois
A must for any appetizer menu, these mouthwatering meatballs require very little preparation, leaving you plenty of time to finish all those other last-minute party details.—Bob Bratzel, Deland, Florida
