Delicious Holiday Appetizers

on December 28, 2012

I’ve been working, for the first time in 9 years. Well, that’s not true. I’ve been working the last 9 years, but it was not for pay, other than kisses and crayon-drawn pictures. But now I’ve got a job working for someone outside of my home, and for a real live paycheck! I’ve been in sales for our local HoneyBaked Ham store. I go out three days a week doing marketing, increasing knowledge of our services and products to businesses in our community. It’s been fun and interesting. One of the things I wanted to do was to increase exposure and thinking of the products beyond just Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner. One of our local tv stations does a segment on Fridays with local chefs demoing one of their recipes. Yes, that’s me, I managed to get my boss on a few weeks ago. But it required me coming up with some recipes that would be specific to our products. I have to apologize for the lack of photos, I’ll work on getting some. I came up with one recipe and another of the employees came up with another that’s kind of based on one of the seasonal sandwiches offered.

HoneyBaked Ham Holiday Appetizers

1 lb HoneyBaked ham cut into bite sized pieces
1 baguette, sliced and toasted
1 small wheel of brie, sliced
1 jar HoneyBaked Ham Cranberry Walnut Chutney

1 lg HoneyBaked oven roasted turkey breast cut into bite sized pieces
1 baguette, sliced and toasted
bleu cheese
1 jar HoneyBaked ham Cranberry Walnut Chutney

HAM APPETIZER
1. Preheat oven to 350F.
2. On a cookie sheet, arrange the baguette slices in a single layer. Next place a slice of ham and top it with a slice of brie.
3. Pop cookie sheet into 350F oven for 5 minutes or until brie begins to melt.
4. Remove from cookie sheet and put on serving platter. Top with 1tsp of Cranberry Walnut Chutney. Serve warm.

TURKEY APPETIZER
1. Preheat oven to 350F.
2. On a cookie sheet, arrange the baguette slices in a single layer. Place a slice of turkey on baguette and top with 1/2 to 1 tsp bleu cheese. (be careful b/c the bleu cheese is a very strong taste).
3. Pop cookie sheet into 350F oven for 5 min.
4. Remove from cookie sheet and place on serving platter, top with 1 tsp Cranberry Walnut Chutney.

These are a great way to use up left over turkey/ham from the holiday, and the look beautiful on the platter, very elegant and delicious.

Any of the HoneyBaked Ham products can be ordered from the online catalog.

Enjoy!
