Ham and Cheese Pinwheels -- A Pinch of Joy

I have it on good authority if you serve these during a football game, your team will win. I’m collecting data and that’s absolutely true. . . . so far. Conduct your own test and see.  In fact, the guys are so sold on this winning thing that they are willing to watch any game, no matter who is playing, and draw straws to determine “their” team, just to test the theory. Me – I ignore the game and concentrate on my project du jour while munching from the plate of pinwheels at my side – win, win! There are never any leftovers whenever these are served and that’s certainly a winner!

Ham and Cheese Pinwheel out of the oven -- A Pinch of Joy

Use crescent sheets if your store has them. No perforations to come apart. You can use any deli sliced meat you like instead of ham and your choice of cheese. Just choose finely shredded cheese as it will stay in the roll better than the thicker shreds. If you are afraid of harming the no stick finish on your cookie sheet with a sharp knife, make the roll on a cutting board. Place the cutting board close to or on the cookie sheet so the smallest distance possible is needed to move the cut pinwheel. Check the pinwheels when they’ve baked for 10 minutes to see if they are done. Watch carefully for any additional time so that they don’t overbake.

Warm and Cheesy Bacon Dip

Warm and Cheesy Bacon Dip -- A Pinch of Joy

Warm and Cheesy Bacon Dip -- A Pinch of Joy

The hard part of making this warm, comforting bacon cheesy dip is finding a place to hide it so that it can cool a bit. Everybody wants to dig in right away! Good. But too hot to really taste the deliciousness. Put it on a cracker and wave it in the air to cool it. Better.   Best — wait a bit longer until it is Goldilocks “just-right”. No burned tongue and the flavors shine.

Easy to make. About 5 minutes and it is ready to pop in the oven. Use only precooked bacon pieces. Look for the brands with larger pieces if you can find them, as they will make a smoother, more flavorful blend. Onion can be omitted or if you want more kick, add another green onion or two. Add pepper, if desired. NO salt as the cheese contains all the salt necessary.

Serve with a basket of dippables like corn chips or carrot and celery sticks. Or a tray of assorted crackers – pretzels are good too. Turn the dip out into a hollowed round of sourdough and spread the mixture on sourdough chunks or toast rounds. Makes about 36 servings of 2 tablespoons each.

Buttery Parmesan Pull Aparts -- A Pinch of Joy

Buttery Parmesan Pull Aparts — one of those appetizers you want to keep eating!  It’s just right flavor, the warm, buttery soft texture — mmmmm!  

Bake in a round cake pan or quiche pan. Resist the temptation to take it out of the oven when it becomes lightly golden. The center won’t be done. Let it bake until the outermost pieces become dark golden and the center resists a light finger push. Setting for five minutes before serving lets the center finish cooking.   I serve right out of the quiche pan I bake it in, but you can turn it out onto a plate if you prefer.
