I found this recipe a few years ago in a dairy cookbook, and it has become a family favorite. We milk 180 cows and have a large garden, so dishes like this that use both dairy products and fresh vegetables are welcome. My husband, Wayne, and our two children are mostly meat-and-potato eaters...but I don't hear any complaints when I make this bread!

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.

I love the roasted flavor that grilling gives food, so I decided to make a salsa from grilled vegetables. I think this recipe would also taste great using plum tomatoes.
