Cheese

Swiss Clam Bites

Author Notes

This recipe sort of evolved from one called "Reggie's Wedges" which I found in Bon Appetit several years ago. Basically it was mayo, grated cheddar, green onions and ripe olives spread on English muffins and baked. The family loves it! For this one I used the same technique with different ingredients...I think everyone will be happy with this one too. It's quick and easy and can be prepped far in advance. —inpatskitchen

I think I get my love for food and cooking from my mom, who was an amazing cook. She would start baking and freezing a month before Christmas in order to host our huge open house on Christmas afternoon. I watched and I learned...to this day I try not to procrastinate when it comes to entertaining. My cooking style is pretty much all over the place, although I'm definitely partial to Greek and Italian cuisine. Oh yes, throw a little Cajun in there too!
