"This is a tasty, easy to make appetizer. They are so good tasting and look very attractive too. They are finger food but may be served with a fork. If you can't get Serrano Spanish ham try some Tuscany or even Black forest. Allow another minute or two for the baking time. You want them warm right through but not bubbling hot."
