    Spread each rectangle with about 1 and a 1/2 tablespoons cheese to within 1/4 inch of the edges. Top with 1 slice of ham and spinach leaves.

    Starting at short side, roll up each rectangle; pinch edges to seal. Cut each roll crosswise into 6 slices for a total of 24 slices. Place slices, cut side down on non stick pan. Bake 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.
    Place on cooling rack for a few minutes and serve warm.

    These are really good anytime!

    I just had the opportunity to read this thread...mmmm. I love appetizers! We should just have a meal of appetizers!

    One easy one we do is

    Jalepeno jelly over cream cheese, serve with wheat thins. Super easy and oh, so gooooood!

    Hot broccoli dip is another good one, on the lines of artichoke dip but with broccoli.

    Hey I forgot to post this .....
    3 Pkgs. frozen cut spinach (do not get leaf spinach, make sure it is cut, thaw and squeeze out water)
    1 pkg. Phyllo (thaw overnight in refrigerator)
    1 Pkg. of chopped Feta Cheese (or whole and crumble it)
    1 med.container of whipped cream cheese
    1 med. container of ricotta cheese
    2 eggs (beaten)
    1 onion ( I like the dried onion flakes better, not as strong)
    1 1/2 tbls spoon of cinnamon
    3 tbls spoons of grated cheese
    1/2 cup of oil
    1/2 cup of milk
    Salt & Pepper
    1 1/2 stick of butter

    preheat oven to 350 (if oven runs on the cool side make it 375)

    Grease the pan really good, especially up the sides
    melt butter
    mix cheeses, eggs, spinach, half the cinnamon, oil, salt & pepper
    place 3 sheets of phyllo on the bottom
    dot corners and middle about 2 inches apart with the cheese/spinach mix
    add 2 layers of phyllo,
    dot again, feeling where the dots are underneath and place dots next to original dots LOL
    more phyllo, more dots,
    continue until cheese/spinach mix is used up
    Pour the milk, butter and remaining cinnamon into the bowl that had the cheese mix
    place 4 or more layers of phyllo on the top
    make long slits with a sharp knife
    pour some of the milk mix into the slits and spread the rest over the top.
    bake for 45 min. to one hour until the house smells great and it starts to look brown

    I'd leave out the coconut too since NO one here will eat it. I do like it but then I'd have to eat them all...

    Hmmmmmm **scratches chin**

    Just wanted to add, when I"m doing a huge meal like Tgiving I like to put out tons of little things in heavy traffic areas. Like bowls of olives, pretzels, mixed nuts, celere with cream cheese or pb(the kids love these)

    I also love doing a giant antipasta platter
    slices of salami, pepperoni, prosciutto
    slices of provolone, mozzarella etc
    different types of olives, artichoke hearts, roasted red peppers.

    One that my brother makes every Thanksgiving:

    We'll call it Heavenly Bites:

    Puff pastry cups
    Brie
    Cranberries (he uses cranberries from my mom's homemade cranberry sauce)

    Defrost puff pastry. Place a chunk of brie on puff pastry. Top with a few intact cranberries. Bake according to the directions on the Puff Pastry box.

    The first year he made this hors d'ouevres he used the sheet puff pastry which he used the rim of a wine glass as a cutter. it was a little bit too time consuming for thatnksgiving, so last year, he went the easy route with the shells. These things are gone before they hit the table!

    I thought of another one I haven't made in soooo long! It was a recipe I adapted from an appetizer on the menu at Carrabas Italian restaurant.

    Bruschetta

    Baguette of your liking, sliced
    Olive Oil
    Pesto
    Gruyere or Fontina Cheese
    Sauteed Mushrooms
    Sliced & Roasted roma tomoates
    Fresh Basil

    Place sliced baguette pieces on baking sheets. Lightly brush with the olive oil. Put a small amount of pesto on top of each slice. Top pesto with a slice of cheese. Do half the batch with a leaf of basil & a slice of tomato. Top the other half with a table spoon (or so) of sauteed mushrooms. Bake at 350 for 10 minutes. If you want the cheese to be a little browner, you could always let it sit under the broiler for a moment.
