"Here's another Jackie recipe that I acquired from the old recipe radio show (The Yankee Kitchen) hosted by the late Gus Saunders. This recipe is a tried and true and always a popular appetizer. One of my sister-in-laws makes it all the time when she is hosting or as a bring-along for a pot-luck. Actually, one of my daughters requests it often where I make it as part of dinner or lunch served with a side salad. When I want to use up cold-cuts I have in the fridge, I sometimes make this recipe to use them up, but make sure that you have some pepperoni to give the recipe some zip."

Just made this for a quick lunch with our visiting grand-kids and everyone loved it, almost like a pizza in a casserole form. Everyone loved the flavors and that could pick up and eat like a sandwich. I loved how easy it is to make and look impressive. YUM

Daily Inspiration

I love this recipe -- it is so delicious and filling. I used some "minimally" processed salami and pepperoni and used some of my honey baked ham sliced thin. This is a great recipe to serve for parties or during football season -- it's filling enough to be a light meal or it can be an appetizer.
