Cheddar Jalapeno Ham Appetizer Bites
I changed the original recipe. I added ham, which I chopped in the food processor. Perfect addition to the bites.
The recipe is from the Live Oak Recipes exchange. Sue Grimes made these delicious little bites.
1 8 oz tub spicy jalapeno cream cheese spread
1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/4 to 1/2 cup ham ( placed in food processor and chopped fine)
14 slices white sandwich bread, crust removed
1/4 cup butter, softened
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 400 degrees
Mix cream cheese spread and cheddar until blended
Flatten bread slices with rolling pin, spread with butter.
Turn the bread over ad spread with the cream cheese mixture.
Add ham from food processor to slices with cream cheese mixture.
Roll up each slice tightly.
Cut slice in half.
Roll each slice in parmesan cheese until evenly coated.
Place on baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Check the bites at 10 minutes to make sure they are getting nice and brown, or bake for 12 to 14 minutes. You don't want them over cooked.
