I can't tell you how many times I've made this recipe or been asked to share it! Guests always think I fussed, but the simple ingredients go together in minutes using pre-sliced cheese. For busy holiday hostesses, it's a do-ahead delight.
I first made this appetizer on Christmas Eve a few years ago, and it has since become a tradition. Serve the pork slices alone or on small dinner rolls with hot mustard sauce, ketchup or horseradish.

"This recipe was in a cookbook my mom gave me when I got married," recalls Eileen Stegall of Omaha, Nebraska. "I have added a few of my own touches. When I take it to a potluck, I always get requests for the recipe."
