Ham & Cheese Sliders {Ideal Party Food}

The Super Bowl is coming up and what better slider to serve at your Super Bowl Party than these Ham and Cheese Sliders .  Here is how easy they are to make---assemble the sandwich, drizzle the sauce and heat them in the oven until the cheese is melted--how easy it that?  Sometimes I make the sandwiches up in the morning and put them in the refrigerator.  Just hold drizzling the sauce until ready to bake. The buttery mustard poppy seed sauce is what puts these sliders over the top.  Yummy yummy! You don't have to wait for a get together, or party to make these.  I made these with some leftover ham we had at Christmas for a quick supper.   If I were you, I wouldn't wait for the Super Bowl to make yours.

Hidden Valley Ranch Sausage Stars {The Perfect Appetizer}

Hidden Valley Ranch Sausage Stars  were the main attraction at our New Years' Eve Party.   I have seen these in many magazines over the years and even cut the recipe out, but I never made them. Well, I found out just how much these are amazingly quick and easy to make!  You can count on these to be on our table for our Super Bowl Party.

Mud Hen Bars

Mud Hen Bars  starts off with a cookie crust topped with pecans, marshmallows, and chocolate chips, but the magic comes with the final layer of brown sugar meringue...mmm, so good! In the 50s, the recipe did not have chocolate chips or mini marshmallows in it.  This just shows you how recipes evolve over the years.  I remember eating them with just pecans.
