Barbecue Meatball Sliders

Hawaiian sweet rolls, meatballs, cheese, and sautéed onions along with chopped crispy turkey bacon combine to make these tasty sliders that can be prepared as a main dish or an appetizer.

Black Bean Soup (or Dip)

Black beans are one of my favorite beans – they go well with corn and tomatoes in cold salads as well as hot sides, but the king of all black bean recipes is black bean soup. For this recipe, I prefer using prepared dry beans because they are more tender than the canned beans and it’s easier to get the right consistency for soup. If you like this soup, try a similar mixture without the broth to make a thick bean dip for corn chips.

Ham and Swiss Sliders

Wondering what to make with leftover ham? These little ham and cheese sandwiches are a fantastically delicious way to use it. Paired with Swiss cheese and a decadent poppy seed glaze, they are addictive.

Tasty Pepperoni and Tortellini Treats

Over the holidays we visited with a friend who served these fantastic little appetizers. Not only were they tasty, but they are easy to make. You could do many different variations, but this is the version I made. I had bulk ingredients, so I am guessing on the amounts here, but you can nibble on any leftover ingredients.
