I’ve been making these for years.
Originally I made them with cream cheese (the real, full-fat stuff) and bacon (also the real, full-fat stuff).
They were delicious and a standard nibble to pass around with a glass of wine.
I’ve updated them a bit…. But just a bit and so, so simple to make.
Make small ones for cocktail nibbles; larger ones to eat with knife and fork for a first course.
Use any dry-cured ham….. Or bacon.

Progress has been made in the pantry.
Yes, yes, he’s working on the shelves….
But the progress that made me happy was getting the appliances in place…..
Specifically, the little fridge at the end.
We had to replace our refrigerator this summer and, unfortunately, we discovered that a mere 2 inches shorter in height caused us to lose a significant amount of interior space. We don’t have enough room for an ‘American’ which is what the side-by-side fridges are called here and the biggest one that fit was still smaller than the one we replaced.
Anyway, we bought another, small, under the counter fridge for additional storage. We use it for milk, yogurt, fruit juice and insulin.
It’s been out in the barn.
It’s been cold these last few weeks and we’ve both been getting rather tired of having to run out to the barn to get a yogurt.
We are most pleased.
With the weather being so cold there have been other, temporary, changes as well.
Mon mari set-up a work bench in the TV room.
He says it’s because it’s too cold to work in the barn, glue not setting right and so on….
I think it’s so he can watch the ‘true crime’ shows on TV while he works
Even though they’re red, they are not Christmas decorations.
He’s making the cabinet doors – thus the clamps and glue.
That’s my exercise bike in the corner of the photo – it’s normally in the pantry, but he moved it out of his way.
So I have to watch his true crime shows while I exercise.
