If you like your appetizers with a crunch, you'll certainly have to try this Ham Pineapple And Cheese Bites from Tasteful Venture. Ham and cheese, ever so glorious together, is savory and satisfying. Pair that with the crunch and saltiness of pretzel sticks and you have a great and creative appetizer that only takes 5 minutes to make!

"With only three ingredients, these are the perfect snack for even the pickiest eaters (i.e. kids). This is my favorite to make if I know there will be little ones around (or just my picky adult friends)."


  • Boar’s Head SmokeMaster™Black Forest Ham
  • Pretzel Sticks
  • Swiss Cheese
  • Mustard (as a dip – optional)


Ludy's Kitchen Cooking Tip: 

When using pretzels for appetizers, make it last minute so that the pretzels would stay crunchy when served.


Make cooking a lot easier and more enjoyable by using good quality silicone baking mats. Not only are silicone mats sturdy and durable. Because they're non-stick, you can also cut your clean-up time in half.
